Crystal Palace are looking to extend their unbeaten run to eight games in all competitions when they travel to Leicester on Sunday.
Patrick Vieira’s side have quietly put together an impressive run that has seen them climb to ninth in the Premier League table and reach the semi-finals of the FA Cup.
The Eagles have one last fixture before their meeting with Chelsea at Wembley next week, and here’s how they could set out for it.
Vicente Guaita (GK) – Jack Butland has stepped in at times this season but the veteran Guaita remains Palace’s first-choice goalkeeper.
Nathaniel Clyne (RB) – The 31-year-old has looked half-decent since returning to his south London home.
Joachim Andersen (CB) – Provided two assists in Monday’s 3-0 win over Arsenal. Impressive.
Marc Guehi (CB) – A string of top performances have seen the new England international emerge as one of the league’s premier defenders.
Tyrick Mitchell (LB) – Similarly has upped his own stock after a great year for Palace.
Cheikhou Kouyate (DM) – His experience and physicality in the heart of midfield is so important to Palace.
Conor Gallagher (CM) – Ineligible to face Chelsea next week, so the loanee will no doubt give his all again in his last hurrah before Palace’s trip to Wembley.
Jeff Schlupp (CM) – The former Fox will be looking to ‘bite the hand that used to feed him’, as the ol’ overused Football Manager saying goes.
Jordan Ayew (RW) – Michael Olise remains sidelined so Ayew will have a chance to build on his solid performance last Monday.
Jean-Philippe Mateta (CF) – There ain’t nobody better than Jean-Philippe Mateta. Get the rave on.
Wilfried Zaha (LW) – His penalty against Arsenal took him to double figures of goals in a Premier League season for just the third time.
