    As I posted earlier:

    “Now this is not going to be an easy match, and no messing, but I'm puzzled as to how Palace are being presented as some sort of ogre by some on here. Of top six clubs, they have beaten one, and one only, this season. Liverpool did the double over them; so did Spurs; so did Chelsea; they took a point off the rags, and were then beaten; they've taken a point off Arsenal so far. Not very terrifying, is it? Now I have no hesitation in saying that we are better than any of those teams, by a distance. The game at our place was a complete one-off, with Townsend scoring a goal the likes of which he had never scored before, not even in his dreams, and will never score again.”

    I remember very clearly how worried we were in spring of 2014 (I was, too). We went there and Yaya did the business. Funnily enough, it was dippers against Chelsea as well, the same day. That was the day the title race turned — although the dippers didn't do themselves any favours with their comedy gold performance at Selhurst Park a bit later.

    Pep and the players will be fired up for this game like a revenge match. We saw last season how Chelsea, Tottenham, Everton and Leicester were destroyed after they had the better of us in Pep's first season. This season we put in faultless performances against Liverpool and United. I've no doubt Pep will have this game tactically spot on and mentally prepared.

    It makes me laugh how history was rewritten reading the title race, Chelsea were very much in the driving seat and threw it away that year. Losing away at Palace, at home against Sunderland and drawing at Norwich at home too in the last 6 games.

    Liverpool lost to Chelsea and drew at Palace in a futile attempt to score about 10 goals in the last 6.

    Totally agree with this.

    Same, Sterling, and Aguero for the remaining games please.

    Palace away can be a tricky game if they get a bit of momentum going. I always think that if we go two up there then we can see out the game fairly easily. Unfortunately we have developed a habit of trying to see out games from one up which is risky.

    I feel sick and confident in equal measure.

    This is THE WEEKEND - we come through this and I think we can grind out the rest.

    I look more at the 0-0 last season. That's when Palace started doubling up on our full-backs and others tried to follow suit.

    Would like to see Danilo and Walker overlapping Sane and Sterling when they can, as Wan-Bissaka and Zaha on that side are formidable on the counter.

    Can't help worrying the likes of Woy and Brendan Teeth will be giving it their all for the Liverpool cause.

    First and foremost, Walker doesn't have a repeat of the last time and we actually start making keepers work. No half-chance bullshit.

    Agreed, because of the threat of their overlap I can't see Sane starting this one at all.

    I feel confident and hope the lads come out with an absolute rocket up their arse, also incredibly nervous about Sunday.
