Three changes Mark Hughes should make vs. Crystal Palace
Saturday’s match between Stoke City and Crystal Palace at the Brittania Stadium is a key game for both sides. For Mark Hughes’ boys it’s a chance to reverse a recent winless streak and for Sam Allardyce’s team it’s an opportunity to pick up a vital point or three on their quest to avoid relegation.
The Potters haven’t won in the Premier League since travelling to Sunderland and punishing the Black Cats on their own patch, although they have had tough matches and earned creditable points against both Manchester United and Everton.
The Eagles have won only one match in their last ten attempts in the Premier League and a 4-0 thrashing last weekend at home to Sunderland has left fans worried that they are heading back to the Championship.
Palace sit in 19th position and although they are just two points from safety, that dismal run of form means it’ll be a tough task to reverse free-fall momentum.
Stoke have the perfect opportunity then to pick up a win and bounce back from last weekend’s defeat to West Brom. But here are THREE changes Mark Hughes must make to secure all three points.
