Fulham travel to Crystal Palace for a London derby in the Premier League on Sunday

Crystal Palace v Fulham
Published: Sunday, 28th February 2021 at 10:45 am

Crystal Palace will hope to maintain the distance between them and relegation-threatened Fulham when these London sides meet at Selhurst Park on Sunday.


Palace ended a two-gaming losing streak in the 2-1 win over Brighton on Monday night to keep them 10 points ahead of 17th-placed Fulham with 13 Premier League fixtures remaining.

It appears unlikely that the Eagles will be relegated this term but manager Roy Hodgson won’t want to leave anything to chance, and a draw would do him nicely.

Indeed, a share of the points would likely please Fulham boss Scott Parker too. His side are hunting down Newcastle and Brighton right now and are unbeaten in four.

Fulham lost 2-1 to Palace at home earlier in the season but spirits are high in west London heading into this encounter. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Crystal Palace v Fulham on TV and online.

Crystal Palace v Fulham team news

Crystal Palace: Hodgson has eight men ruled out of this tie, including the influential Wilfried Zaha. Connor Wickham, Jeffrey Schlupp, James McArthur, Mamadou Sakho, Wayne Hennessey, Nathan Ferguson and James Tomkins are also out.

Christian Benteke could start ahead of Jean-Philippe Mateta after his late winner against Brighton. Jordan Ayew and Andros Townsend will likely start either side of the focal striker.

Fulham: Aleksandar Mitrovic is rated 50/50 to feature here and Parker is not expected to rely on the striker even if he is passed fit, with Josh Maja tipped to lead the line.

Tom Cairney is the only other injury concern for the boss, who must decide whether or not to stick with the same XI that beat Sheffield United last time out.

Our prediction: Crystal Palace v Fulham

Fulham have enjoyed a spark of form in recent weeks and will arrive in south London expecting to claim at least a point here, especially after keeping three clean sheets in their last four outings.

Palace, meanwhile, would likely take a draw just to keep their distance between them and the bottom three. Without Zaha they are blunted in attack – although the two goals scored on Monday night against Brighton proves they can cope in his absence.

A point shared here seems inevitable. It’s likely to be a tight game and both Hodgson and Parker will happily walk away having not lost.

Our prediction: Crystal Palace 1-1 Fulham (11/2 at bet365)
