Crystal Palace v Stoke City

Crystal Palace will be counting on their dominance in recent games over Stoke City to get a positive result at Selhurst Park on Saturday.

Palace have all but avoided relegation but will not be taking any chances against Stoke at Selhurst Park.

The Glaziers enter the match with a favourable record of four wins in the last five against Stoke in all competitions.

Mathematically, the 16th-placed Palace can still be relegated, but it remains unlikely as they would need to lose their remaining games while the teams below would need a miraculous spike in form.

The Eagles have managed one win in their last 19 games in the league, with 11 losses and seven draws.

Wilfried Zaha remains sidelined with a leg muscle injury, while Yannick Bolasie and Mile Jedinak are doubtful as a result of illness.

The Potters, meanwhile, are winless in their last five games following three losses and two draws.

Stoke have an opportunity to equal their club record of 54 points in a campaign.

Attacker Bojan may undergo a late fitness test after suffering a foot injury, while Glen Johnson and Marc Wilson remain sidelined with respective knee problems.
