Stoke City vs Crystal Palace Live, SAT 05 May 2018, Premier League, Start Time 12:30, Venue: bet365 Stadium
After successive draws against West Ham, Burnley and Liverpool, Stoke City’s Premier League status is hanging by a thread. Beat Crystal Palace and the fight goes on, lose and it is over. Even another draw just won’t do this time.
Paul Lambert has managed to stem the flood of goals Stoke were conceding under sacked boss Mark Hughes. Scoring them now seems to be the problem.
Against Liverpool they had a couple of gilt-edged chances to claim victory, but squandered them. In games against West Ham and Burnley they snatched precious leads but were unable to hold on to them.

Palace, on the other hand, are a team reborn. Seemingly dead and buried after losing their first seven games of the season, they have been revived and reinvigorated under manager Roy Hodgson. And with a host of injured players now fit and firing again, they are one of the Premier League’s form teams. They come into Saturday’s match on the back of a 5-0 rout of Leicester City at Selhurst Park.
