Fulham vs Crystal Palace - Premier League preview and team news

Fulham end their 13-year stay in the top flight of English football with a home clash against London rivals Crystal Palace on Sunday.

A surprisingly abject performance at Stoke City sealed the Cottagers’ fate, but in reality the damage was done before Felix Magath took charge, as on the whole, performances have been more encouraging since the German arrived. Magath will continue in the role next season, so given his pedigree, Fulham will be among the frontrunners for an immediate return, but for now they will want to end this season with a win.

Just mere weeks ago, this looked like it could possibly be a match that decided which out of these two sides would end up being relegated, so the fact that Crystal Palace are set to finish 11th makes that look all the more remarkable. On Monday, they produced probably the comeback of the season, drawing 3-3 with Liverpool after being 3-0 down, a sign of how far they have come in such a short space of time.

Matthew Briggs and Damien Duff are both out for Fulham, who have doubts over striker Hugo Rodallega, who is still recovering from illness.

Crystal Palace striker Cameron Jerome missed the game against Liverpool through injury and could miss out again, while Dwight Gayle could be handed a start after scoring twice against the title hopefuls.
