Palace fans at the Tavern thoroughly enjoyed their Saturday night after they beat relegation rivals Middlesbrough, bouncing back after their consecutive defeats to Stoke and Sunderland.
The Eagles ran out 1-0 winners against the Boro at Sellhurst Park, courtesy of a Patrick Van Aanholt wonder strike. This victory lifted Big Sam and his men out of the relegation zone, temporarily climbing over Leicester to sit in 17th place, before the Foxes stunned Liverpool.
However, the Tavern’s landlord knows that Palace fans cannot afford to rest on their laurels just yet as they must regroup to go again on Saturday as they travel to the Midlands.
Their opponents, high-flying West Brom.
The Baggies sit in eighth place and as Paul Merson said on Sky Sports last week, “if you take away the top 7, they’re top.”
Tony Pulis’ men have been unbeaten in their last five Premier League games and have a real chance in the race for European football, being only four points behind Everton.
A win for Crystal Palace will keep their hope for safety alive but they have a job to do against a team trying to prove their place in England’s elite.
With that in mind let’s take a look at the STARTING XI that Palace should play if they want to record a second win in a row at The Hawthorns….Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
