Roy Hodgson’s Eagles travel to Burnley on Saturday without a win since September, but star duo Wilfred Zaha and Patrick van Aanholt hit the red carpet on Wednesday night.

Palace’s top goalscorer and attacking left-back were joined by West Ham’s Jack Wilshere, Bournemouth’s Joshua King and a range of professional boxing icons, including Amir Khan and James DeGale, as Creed 2 premiered in London.

The £78million blockbuster is the eighth instalment in the Rocky franchise and has already made £43.6million since hitting the big screen in America last week.

Hollywood A-listers Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone star in the follow-up feature film based on the life of Adonis Creed, who is set to box the son of Ivan Drago, the athlete who killed Adonis’ father, Apollo Creed.

Palace’s eight-game winless streak sets up the Eagles’ clash at home to Burnley with both sides locked on nine points and inevitably fearing the prospect of an unlikely relegation.

A win for either side could see the opponent fall into the relegation zone as just one point currently separates the duo from the bottom three, although Hodgson’s side boast a far stronger goal difference than Southampton, Cardiff and Fulham.
