Back to back wins for Crystal Palace in their last two games have seen them rise out of the relegation zone for the time being as Sam Allardyce’s plans begin to take shape.

The Eagles have kept clean sheets in three of the last five games, all games which they have won, and appear to be on the up.

Off the back of a two-week break, Palace take on Watford who were the team Allardyce faced in his first game in charge of the club. It ended 1-1 on the day but the Eagles rued missed opportunities to take all three points.

Watford aren’t completely safe from the drop sitting just six points ahead of Palace who can really distance themselves from the likes of Hull and Middlesbrough if they secure victory tomorrow.

Who will Allardyce start? Here is our predicted XI for tomorrow’s relegation six-pointer at Selhurst Park.
