On the other side of this game is Crystal Palace who sit in 13th place in the standings with 22 points scored. Crystal Place has been super inconsistent this year and that is something that needs to be cleaned up. At times this is a team that has looked like a top four team and at other times they have looked like a relegation zone team. In the last game against Sheffield United, Crystal Palace had Jeffery Schlupp who put a goal in the back of the net in the 4th minute and they added another goal in stoppage time in the 1st half. Crystal Palace had 44 percent of the possession with four shots on target and that led to the three points being picked up.
