Have only won twice in their next league game, against West Brom and funnily enough, us. Gary Monk seems to be doing something right, but with them playing on Thursday away to Napoli and the difference in our side since we played them at Selhurst, you have to question the impact on the Europa League on Sunday's fixture.

They have some players they can rotate, and obviously have some talent, but I think we can tire them out with a solid display on Sunday.

It's interesting the impact the Europa League has on the a side; often they don't quite have the depth of squad to rotate as successfully as the Champions League sides, though this year doesn't look great for any of the Prem's teams in Europe!

Here's hoping Sunday is a good and competitive fixture.

I thought this when we played them at home after a Europa League tie. But they played us of the park.

However, we are a different animal these days so we have every chance.

 


The Queen supports Crystal Palace. Perhaps she'll buy the club then legitimately all the money in England shall be ours. Plus all the swans.

Difference is, they didn't play in Europe twice in two weeks then. They played Napoli last week, again this week, and obviously the weekend too. At this point in the season, with such fixture congestion, you'd have to say it'd make more of difference than before.

I'd like to see Gayle on with 20-25 to go in this match playing off Murray. I think gayle could carve tired legs right open through the centre in this match, but only if Murray supplies the telling pass. The only problem is we must keep Murray on for either the full 90 to play gayle in with a class touch i.e. (the one to puncheon sat at Man U) or bring him on as a sub alongside Gayle. I would like to see Murray start whilst being aware that pulis will bring gayle on to run at them on 65-70mins and to keep his legs best he can for that substitution.
