Another team saved by Allardyce? Not quite, but he certainly has Palace -- the worst performing team in all four professional leagues of English soccer in 2016 -- heading in the right direction.Sakho has slotted into a newly formed five-man defense and Palace hasn't conceded a goal with him in the team.That four-point cushion could come in very handy for Palace, which is 16th in the 20-team league.The team has dropped to sixth in the league, six points behind fourth-place Liverpool, which occupies the final Champions League qualification spot. Arsenal has qualified for the Champions League every year since 1998 .
