Manager Arsene Wenger says former Arsenal midfielder Mathieu Flamini will add experience to Crystal Palace after moving to Selhurst Park.
The 32-year-old left the Emirates this summer after featuring for more than 240 for the Gunners.
"He will bring them experience," Wenger said of Flamini.
"They have bought quite well, because they now have Flamini, Benteke and Loic Remy. They have strengthened their squad well, with Cabaye in midfield they will be a strong team."
The Frenchman also confirmed that he has to evaluate the fitness level of his players ahead of tomorrow's home game against Southampton and next week's away game at the Parc des Princes.
"[Fatigue?] That's a little bit the problem at the top level of competition.
"You do not have enough time to practise and you have many competitions.
"I could focus on the players that stayed here for the two weeks, and see how everybody comes back, maybe rest a few because we play again on Tuesday [against Paris Saint-Germain].
"The fact that I have a very complete squad [makes] these decisions easier."
