Kick Off – 15.00pm Saturday 7th May 2016

Crystal Palace play hosts Stoke at Selhurst Park on Saturday in the Premier League, as the visitors attempt to secure a third consecutive top-ten finish in the top-flight.

Crystal Palace heads into this clash on the back of a 1-0 defeat at relegation-threatened Newcastle, with England winger Andros Townsend scoring the only goal of the game. Eagles midfielder Yohan Cabaye also saw a penalty kick saved by Karl Darlow in the second half.

The defeat means that Alan Pardew’s side are 16th in the Premier League table, seven points clear of the relegation zone. However, the FA Cup finalists look to have accrued enough points to stay out of the drop zone this season.

The visitors drew 1-1 at home against another relegation-threatened team in Sunderland last time out. The Potters took the lead through mercurial Austrian winger Marko Arnautovic, before former-England international striker Jermain Defoe scored a stoppage-time penalty kick to earn the Black Cats a valuable point.

The Potters are currently ninth in the Premier League table and will be hoping to secure another top- ten finish this season.

Facts And Figures

These two teams have only met five times in the Premier League, with Palace recording three wins, one game finishing in a draw and Stoke winning once.

The two Premier League meetings at Selhurst Park have seen one win for Palace and also one draw.

The Eagles have won four out of the last five meetings in all competitions between these teams. All four of those wins have come by a one goal margin.

Palace have won just once in the Premier League in 2016 and have suffered consecutive league defeats.

Stoke have won just one of their last eight matches in the Premier League and have lost three of their last four top-flight outings. The Potters have lost their last two away games in the top-flight and conceded eight goals in the process.

Palace have suffered six defeats in their last eight home games in the Premier League, but are unbeaten in their last two in the top-flight.

Team Selection And News

The home side are once again expected to be without striker Marouane Chamakh through injury, while centre-back Brede Hangeland and winger Wilfried Zaha are also both doubts for the game.

The visitors are without ‘keeper Jack Butland, full-back Glen Johnson and midfielder Ibrahim Afellay through injury, while ‘keeper Shay Given , defender Marc Wilson and winger Marko Arnautovic are also doubts for this clash.

Possible Crystal Palace Team Selection

Hennessey, Ward, Dann, Delaney, Souare, Jedinak, McArthur, Bolasie, Cabaye, Puncheon, Wickham

Possible Stoke City Team Selection

Haugaard, Bardsley, Cameron, Shawcross, Pieters, Whelan, Adam, Walters, Imbula, Shaqiri, Diouf

Match Prediction

This is one of those end of season games, where both teams have very little to play for in the league. The Palace players’ minds will be on the FA Cup final later this month, while Stoke are unlikely to move much higher in the table. For me this will be a draw.
