    Crystal Palace vs. West Bromwich Albion: An Alternative Preview

    Probable Lineups:

    crystal palaceCrystal Palace (4-4-2): Speroni, Ward, Gabbidon, Delaney, Parr, Puncheon, Joe Ledley, Jedinak, Bolasie, Jerome, Chamakh

    Against league leaders Arsenal last weekend, Tony Pullis pulled out a 4-4-2 at the Emirates, suggesting that he would probably stick with two strikers against a team of the same stature.  Cameron Jerome and former Gunner Marouane Chamakh will lead the line while new signing Joe Ledley may feature in the middle of the park in place of Dikgacoi.

    West Bromwich Albion (4-3-3): Foster, Jones, McAuley, Dawson, Ridgewell, Morrison, Yacob, Mulumbu, Berahino, Anichebe, Brunt

    The Baggies managed a 1-1 draw with an in-form Liverpool side last weekend, but it was Kolo Toure’s misplaced backpass that hogged the headlines.  It was, however, fair to say the Baggies fought back well and deserved their point.   Pepe Mel’s side are seen somewhat as a ‘draw expert’ away from home, managing six draws in their 12 away fixtures.

    What the fans are saying…

    Crystal Palace have won three and lost just one of the last seven meetings with West Brom in all competitions.

    West Brom have lost just one of their last 10 league visits to Selhurst Park to play Palace (W3 D6 L1), but that was the only Barclays Premier League meeting (2004-05).

    West Brom and Crystal Palace have already met twice this season, with the Baggies winning 2-0 in the Barclays Premier League and Palace 2-0 in the FA Cup, both games at the Hawthorns.

    Palace have only scored three goals in their last six Premier League games, all by Jason Puncheon.

    The Londoners have scored the fewest goals in the Premier League (15) and have failed to score in 12 games, the joint-most along with Cardiff City.

    The Eagles have kept five clean sheets in their last seven Premier League games at Selhurst Park.

    The Baggies have kept just one clean sheet in their last 14 Premier League matches since beating the Londoners 2-0 back at the start of November.

    The opening goal in the last two league games between Palace and West Brom at Selhurst Park has been an own goal.

    Since Tony Pulis has been in charge of Crystal Palace, they have won 16 points in 12 PL games - more than double the seven points from 12 PL games under Ian Holloway/Keith Millen.

    West Brom have drawn 11 of their 24 Premier League games this season, more than any other side.
