Crystal Palace will entertain West Bromwich Albion at the Selhurst Park looking to end their season with a victory. The Eagles are currently flying high in the league and have won three of their previous four fixtures in the Premier League. However, they will come across one of the in-form teams in the shape of the Baggies. Darren Moore’s side may have been relegated, yet they have won three and drawn two of their last five encounters in the league.
The recent history of this fixture makes a mixed reading for both teams as they have both won two, drawn one and lost two of their previous five meetings in the league. Roy Hodgson is expected to opt for a 4-4-2 formation and may name an unchanged side for this clash. He has no fresh injury worries to deal with ahead of this contest.
4-4-2 Crystal Palace Predicted Lineup To Face West Bromwich Albion
Wayne Hennessey will start in goal for the Eagles and might be guarded by a back four of James Tomkins and Mamadou Sakho in central defence while Patrick van Aanholt plays at left-back and Joel Ward operates on the right side of the backline.
The Palace defence has conceded just one goal in their last three league matches and now, the Eagles boss Roy Hodgson will be hoping that his back four can keep things solid in defence when they take on the Baggies in the final game of the season.
Yohan Cabaye and Luka Milivojevic will pair up as the holding midfielders at the centre of the park. The performance of the duo will be integral if Palace are to get a positive result on Sunday.
James McArthur might start on the right flank and will hope to put in a tireless shift against a resolute West Brom side. Ruben Loftus-Cheek will look to deliver some good crosses with his stronger right foot and create some chances for his teammates while operating on the left side of the midfield.
Wilfried Zaha and Andros Townsend could lead the lines for the home side up top. The pair has shown signs of promise in their last few league starts and will hope to register their names on the scoresheet when they lace up to face the Baggies defence this weekend. Zaha has made 28 appearances for Palace this season, finding the back of the net 8 times while grabbing 5 assists in the Premier League so far.
