Crystal Palace will be looking to claim a scalp over their former manager Alan Pardew, as they gear up to take on West Brom.

The Eagles travel to the Hawthorns in what is an undoubtedly crucial game for both sides, who are in desperate need of points given that they sit dangerously low in the table.

Palace have improved under Roy Hodgson and will hope to build on their 0-0 draw against Brighton in midweek.

West Brom, too, took a point during the week as Newcastle fought back from two behind to draw 2-2.

Hodgson is set to assess his squad’s condition ahead of the match given the busy schedule at hand, but it seems as though there will be no huge changes made to the Palace line-up ahead of West Brom.

A win would take the Eagles up to 12 points and level with Saturday’s counterparts. They’d likely be narrowly trailing the Baggies on goal difference, with Pardew’s new side sat in 17th place.

Here’s how we expect Palace to line up at West Brom!
