Crystal Palace travel to Stoke City on Saturday for a fixture that is much less important for the visitors than it might have seemed even a month ago.

Roy Hodgson's side have secured their spot in the Premier League for next season after a disastrous start which saw them lose their opening seven top flight games.

Palace currently have 38 points from 36 matches and are in 11th position. Stoke, meanwhile, have 30 points from 36 games and are in 19th place. The Potters could be relegated this weekend.
