Crystal Palace have completed a remarkable turnaround this season, and they could move into the top-half of the table with a win over West Bromwich Albion at Selhurst Park on Sunday.
The Eagles are undefeated in their last five games, and this run has helped them move away from the struggle at the bottom. As things stand, they are 11th in the table with 41 points. A win on Sunday would most probably see them leapfrog Newcastle United in the tenth spot.
Palace looked certain for relegation after losing their opening seven fixtures of the season. However, Roy Hodgson has not only steadied the ship at the club, but he has got them playing some decent football.
The Eagles come into this game on the back of a 2-1 away win at Stoke City. The South London side have also picked up maximum points from their last two home games.
West Bromwich Albion suffered relegation following the games during the mid-week. The Baggies did put up a brave fight under Darren Moore, but it was too late for them. They are undefeated in their last five games, a run which saw them claiming wins over Manchester United and Tottenham.
However, we suspect that the Baggies might not have the fight left in them following their relegation.
Earlier this season, both sides played a goalless draw in the reverse fixture at the Hawthorns.
