Crystal Palace face Stoke City at Selhurst Park on 25/11/17 after both teams were involved in 2-2 draws last time out.

Crystal Palace Preview

Roy Hodgson saw his Crystal Palace team held to a 2-2 draw in successive home games last time out after Everton twice came from behind against the Eagles to snatch a point on their travels. It took just a minute for the home side to take the lead as James McArthur scored from close range, before the game’s most controversial moment came, with Oumar Niasse winning an extremely soft penalty which Leighton Baines converted. Wilfried Zaha then netted once again for the home team, but Niasse was again key to Everton’s comeback, equalising in first-half stoppage time. Christian Benteke missed a glorious chance in the second-half to win the game for Palace, displaying his apparent rustiness as he returned from injury. Getting the best out of Benteke will be crucial if Palace hope to avoid the drop this season, having dearly missed the presence of a centre-forward that can complement the creative talents of Zaha, Andros Townsend and Ruben Loftus-Cheek. With two wins and two draws in their last four home games, Palace will have to keep picking up points at home if they hope to close the five-point gap between themselves and safety. Facing Stoke, Brighton, West Brom, Bournemouth  and Watford in their next five games, these are the kind of fixtures they will need to get a solid points return from.

Crystal Palace Team News

Connor Wickham (cruciate ligament) will be out until the new year, while Patrick van Aanholt and Chong-Yong Lee will have their respective hamstring problems assessed.

Stoke City Preview

Like his counterpart Hodgson, Mark Hughes will have been left disappointed with the fact his side were unable to come away with three points in their last outing, after twice going ahead in their clash with Brighton and Hove Albion. Eric Choupo-Moting put the Potters ahead with a composed finished, before Pascal Gross equalised shortly before half-time. However, Kurt Zouma headed in from close range to give Stoke a 2-1 lead heading into the break, but winger Jose Izquierdo ensured both teams would be forced to settle for a point. An away point would usually be considered satisfactory for Stoke, but the manner in which they dropped two points here will have left them feeling extremely disappointed, resulting in them drawing their second successive game 2-2. Hughes’ side are now unbeaten in their last three Premier League games, winning one and drawing two but still find themselves just four points above the bottom three. Away from home, Stoke have won just one of their six matches so far this term and just three of their 15 this calendar year. Peter Crouch became the leading substitute appearance maker in the Premier League at Brighton on Monday night and is the team’s joint-leading scorer alongside Choupo-Moting and Mame Biram Diouf.

Stoke City Team News

Jack Butland (broken finger) is missing so Lee Grant retains his place in goal, while Geoff Cameron (concussion) could return.
