Stoke Need The Points Against Palace

Stoke Need The Points Against Palace

With Stoke knowing a draw would also not be enough, they went forward in search of a second goal, but left big gaps at the back and Patrick van Aanholt took advantage with the victor four minutes from time.

West Brom took their unbeaten run under caretaker manager Darren Moore to five matches with a stoppage-time victor from Jake Livermore, although their celebrations could be quickly cut short as they will go down if Southampton win the late game at Everton.

Roy Hodgson has spoken of his pride at the likelihood of keeping Crystal Palace in the Premier League, but does not yet know where the achievement ranks in his career.

The Premier League match between Stoke and Crystal Palace will be broadcast on NBCSN.

Palace were pointless and goalless in the league following their first seven games but now sit 11th in the standings and nine points above the bottom three.

He is certainly one of the most entertaining - 67 per cent of his 21 Premier League goals have come from outside the penalty area.

"I'm happy here at the moment and we will sit down after the season".

Paul Lambert was brought in but he was unable to stop the rot, winning just one of his games in charge.

After a woeful start, Parramatta have rediscovered some of the form that took them into the top four last season, but they will be up against it this weekend. "I don't think we're well balanced in that area".

McArthur has played in 32 of Palace's 37 games this season, starting 25 at the heart of a midfield four, holding alongside Milivojevic to allow the wider players the freedom to get forward.

Part of the reason Palace chairman Steve Parish appointed Frank de Boer as manager last summer was a desire to evolve the club's style of play.

As a Stoke fan and a season ticket holder I am heart broken with the result, but this tweet has really touched me.

Then the Baggies enjoyed yet another incredible reprieve when a Southampton victory at Everton in the late game, which would have confirmed their relegation, was prevented by a 96th minute equalizer for the home side in a 1-1 draw.

Stoke City are the first team to be relegated from the top-flight this season, although West Brom will shortly follow the Potters to the Championship.
