    Palace to end the season on a high, while Fulham slump to the Championship

    Probable Lineups:

    fulham palaceFulham (4-4-2): Stockdale, Heitinga, Hangeland, Amorebieta, Richardson, Holtby, Riether, Diarra, Sidwell, Kasami, Rodallega

    With the regulation battle done practically done and dusted, Fulham will be going into their last home match in the Premier League before falling into the Championship next season. Coach Felix Magath has however declared he will be staying at Craven Cottage next season despite his failure to keep the club in the division. There may be a few youth team players the coach could pick for this otherwise meaningless match, but the core should start in their attempts of a satisfactory goodbye for the supporters.

    Crystal Palace (4-4-2): Speroni, Mariappa, Dann, Delaney, Ward, Puncheon, Jedinak, Dikgacoi, Bolasie, Joe Ledley, Chamakh

    Crystal Palace came from 3-0 behind against league leaders Liverpool to draw the game 3-3 in the space of just ten minutes – with practically nothing to play for. The win derailed Liverpool’s title push which gave Manchester City the opportunity to go ahead of the Merseysiders by two points if they were to win against Aston Villa – which they comfortably did. Crystal Palace have been the in-form team in the second half of the campaign and although this clash could be considered a friendly, expect Tony Pullis’ men to come out looking only for a win.

    What the fans are saying…

     

     

     

    Remember this?

    Pajtim Kasami scores one of the goals of the season against Crystal Palace last time out. Will a friendly provide us with such a strike?

    Fantasy Football Danger Man

    Joel Ward

    With Crystal Palace in such fine form and Fulham practically nothing but pride to play for, we’re opting to go with Palace defender Joel Ward to keep another clean sheet for the Eagles.

    Fulham vs. Crystal Palace: An Alternative Preview

    Fulham have won five and lost just one of the last seven league matches against Crystal Palace.

    Fulham and Crystal Palace have the worst records in Premier League London derbies this season, averaging 0.67 and 1 point per game respectively.

    The Whites have used 38 different players in the Premier League this season; more than any team in any previous Premier League season.

    Regardless of the result in this game, this will be Fulham’s lowest points tally in a Premier League season (currently 31, previous lowest was 36 in 2007-08).

    Crystal Palace have already won more games this season (13) than ever before in a single Premier League campaign.

    The Eagles have not won a single game played on a Sunday in the last two seasons that they have played in the Premier League (L3 D1 in 2004-05 and L4 D1 this season).

    Fulham have conceded 83 goals in the Premier League this season – the only team to have conceded more in a 38-game season are Derby County in 2007-08 (89).

    Five different players have taken the six Premier League penalties awarded to Crystal Palace this season; more than any other side.

    Just two of the goals that Crystal Palace have conceded this season have followed errors by an Eagles player – a league-low.

    Mile Jedinak is the only player to have reached triple figures in terms of tackles (131) and interceptions (137) in the Premier League this season.
