    Tough place to go regardless of Palace’s form.

    Surely the same 11 start after such a huge win and performance against City.

    Only potential changes are Keita or Ox

    Win this game and then sit back and hope Chelsea beat Man City

    Depends who plays when during the internationals, the ones coming back/flying later could see the bench.

    This will be an extremely tough game, and is one in my own mind where we could lose - because they (Palace) desperately need the win and many of our players are coming back from international duty so you don't know who will be fit and how tired they will be.  I just hope Palace have a load of players coming back from international duty.  

    Palace have one of those players in the league - Zaha - who is a difference maker of high quality, could cause us serious problems, we really need to play a controlled game and win the midfield battle in this one.  Again it's a game we are going to be expected to win and we HAVE to win - otherwise today's win means fuck all.  Right now, looking at both Leicester and Chelsea, they don't look like they will lose either - so even if we take City out of the equation I think those two could cause us problems.

    Bollocks. Why do some people here have to think every game is going to be a tough game, never mind extremely tough ? Are you Hal in disguise ?

    In Palace's last 8 games they have : lost 4-0 to Spurs, Lost 2-0 to Leicester, Lost 2-0 to Chelsea and lost 2-0 to City. They have only been taking points off teams below or around them (1-1 Wolves, 2-2 Arsenal, 2-0 Norwich and 2-1 West Ham).  Let's just say it as is is - this should be a regulation win and dare I say it a clean sheet. 0-2 or 0-3 perhaps.

    Couldn’t agree more. We’ve just battered city 3-1, are miles away at the top of the league after playing many a tough fixture and we’ve just been crowned champions of Europe (again) after narrowly missing out on the league a few months ago. Sure, there will be some tough and nervy fixtures, but this surely shouldn’t be one of them.

    We aint losing to Palace, they're shit.

    They struggle to score goals and Zaha is waaaaaay off form.

    So happy we didn’t go for Zaha. Massively overrated (except when playing Milner)

    The biggest concern would be making sure we're at the races mentally. A win like yesterday will have had an impact, and it will be difficult, even for our mentality giants to make sure they are 100% on it, up for it and focused.

    As long as all our players come back injury free I'm ok with it.

    Also gives time for likes of Shaqiri & Matip to recover

    Could we not wait a few more days to start talking about this game that is almost two weeks away?  I'm still exhausted from yesterday's match.

    I think it's actually a decent time. City have to wait to weeks to try get back on track.

    Palace have a better record against the bigger teams away from home, where they can play completely on the break. I think we'll be fine.

    Agree with this. Think of how dire this forum gets during international breaks. Multiply by 1000 and you're still nowhere near where the Fume will be at.

    Especially if Bernardo gets his ban going into the next run of games.

    They'll be stewing with new conspiracy theories as to how "LiVARpool" (see what I did there) are going to be gifted the league and how football is fixed.

    We're a completely different team on the road.  We've been getting plenty of points but a lot of those games have been nervy.

    I'm nervous any away game these days.  Eventually we won't get that injury time winner and drop points.


    Home, I have no worries.

    Just a thought, Fabs might have to get a yellow in this game.
    We play Brighton at home after Palace and then it's the derby at home again.
    So I'd rather he miss the Brighton game and be ready for Everton.

    Simple logic Frogfish - some teams are just better at beating other teams, I never thought the game the other night would be hard, I was super-confident we would beat them compared to 99% of the people on this forum.  I actually think we look a bit weak after international breaks, and don't play that well, further I think our history of going onto to do well in the next game after a big win like yesterday is rather shit - especially when we have to face specific teams.  Palace will be desperate for a win, I am hoping our players will be 100% up for the next game because they will need to be.
