West Brom vs Crystal Palace – Premier League preview and team news

Crystal Palace will be keen to avoid a third consecutive league defeat when they go to resurgent West Bromwich Albion, who are a point above them in the table.

The West Midlands side were forced to defend for long spells against Manchester United on Monday after scoring a superb opening goal through Stephane Sessegnon, but coped fairly well and took the lead for a second time through the much talked about Saido Berahino. A late goal denied them victory, but the display showed the progress they have made in recent weeks with only one defeat in a tough five-game spell.

A visit from the league leaders proved a little too tricky for Crystal Palace, who battled hard and played some neat football but conceded two top quality goals.

The sending off of Damien Delaney was a crucial moment in the context of the match as it came so soon after Cesar Azpilicueta of Chelsea was dismissed, not allowing the Eagles to make the most of their one-man advantage. As for this game, it is the kind of encounter that they will expect to gain points from.

West Brom are without central midfielder Claudio Yacob due to personal reasons, while they are still waiting on the fitness of winger Silvestre Varela.

Delaney serves a one-match ban, but aside from having slight doubts over Scott Dann and James McArthur, Palace have no major injury problems.
