Crystal Palace will want to break its losing streak when it travels to the Hawthorns to face Premier League fighters West Bromwich Albion on Sunday afternoon.
Roy Hodgson’s team has suffered back-to-back defeats that have taken them to 15th place in the table, although they are seven points above the relegation zone.
What is YOUR prediction for Crystal Palace vs West Bromwich Albion?
The eagles win!
It will be a draw …
Sachets win …
First-team trio Connor Wickham, Nathan Ferguson and Wayne Hennessey have been ruled out due to injury.
However, Palace has received a huge boost ahead of today’s game as Hodgson has confirmed Wilfried Zaha is back after missing the last two games after testing positive for coronavirus.
Here, Football Fancast has worked on a starting lineup scheduled for this afternoon, which sees Hodgson make three changes to the team that lost to Newcastle.
Maybe Jack Butland could come in, but we’re backing Vicente Guaita to keep his spot in the Eagles’ goal this afternoon as he has been entrusted with the gloves for every Premier League game so far this season.
Hodgson is likely to name four mostly unchanged running backs to face the Baggies, but Tyrick Mitchell has been so strong since the start of the season that we believe the young left-back will replace Patrick van Aanholt in the starting lineup.
Sunday’s game may come too early for Nathan Ferguson, who is working to get back in shape as he is currently recovering from surgery.
Luka Milivojevic is available for the selection once again after serving his three-match suspension, although the club captain is unlikely to start, with Jairo Riedewald resuming his burgeoning association with James McArthur in midfield.
The Palace boss has a big decision ahead of him given Michy Batshuayi’s lack of form down the middle, so Jeffrey Schlupp could lead the line after starting the loss to Newcastle.
Zaha he has been cleared to play, which means he will most likely be located next to Schlupp at the top of the field. the 9 million pounds sterling Jordan Ayew will have to drop to the bench as a result.
