Crystal Palace must attack with intent against Boro, ignite tepid Selhurst Park

Sam Allardyce and his Crystal Palace host Middlesbrough in another Selhurst Park six-pointer on Saturday.

The pressure that comes with relegation battles can be insufferable. They require mental fortitude, physical toughness and unbridled energy. Football teams can react to the sensation in varying ways -- they can blossom or they can wilt. This weekend's fixture, which sees Crystal Palace pitted against Middlesbrough in another Selhurst Park six-pointer, will require Sam Allardyce's side to keep their heads and play the game, not the occasion.

This Palace team, softened through repeated blows and disappointments,...

Wilfried Zaha may outgrow Palace as ex-Man United ace targets big time

The ESPN FC crew discuss who might get the sack next in the Premier League.

Wilfried Zaha is hot property again. With Crystal Palace languishing in a relegation fight, the young Ivory Coast winger is again being linked with a summer move to Tottenham. While his wish to move to Spurs in the summer was rejected, the scenario this time round could be quite different given the predicament Palace find themselves in.

Zaha will be reminded of the risk that comes with a move to a more ambitious club. The winger's 2013 transfer to Manchester United for £10 million is repeatedly...

Sam Allardyce to blame as Crystal Palace slump to Stoke defeat

Joe Allen's second half finish gave Stoke a narrow 1-0 victory, adding to Big Sam's relegation woes.
Sam Allardyce addresses the dire situation Crystal Palace are in to survive, and his role in leading the team to safety.

Crystal Palace are in freefall, and the hope that the parachute of a new manager and new player additions would make a difference has now faded. In a laborious match for all who watched, Palace fell to a solitary Joe Allen goal, worsening their plight in the process.


Sam Allardyce said that the players didn't play too badly. If there is a positive to take, it's that the side didn't concede four goals before half-time like they did the previous week against Sunderland.

Leicester's relegation showdown at Swansea, Liverpool face Tottenham

Leicester City's next six games could be the beginning of the end to their season.
ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti delves into the rumours regarding dressing room drama at Leicester City.
Following a vote of confidence from Leicester's board, the FC crew discuss what's plaguing Claudio Ranieri and his players.
Shaka Hislop breaks down the odds of the leading candidates to get the sack as manager in the Premier League.

Liverpool still haven't won a league game in 2017. They host rivals Tottenham on Saturday evening with both sides still hoping for a slip-up from Chelsea in their pursuit of the title. 

Elsewhere, there's a monster of a game at the Liberty, with Leicester facing Swansea as their relegation battle takes another twist. The champions are in danger of going down, just one point off the bottom three ahead of the weekend, and could even start the game in the relegation zone if results go against...

Sam Allardyce running out of time as Palace flirt with the Championship

The ESPN FC crew discuss who could be sacked next.

Crystal Palace lack a backbone. Not just the kind that gives teams a strong mentality but the spine upon which all successful sides are built. Sam Allardyce doesn't have a great deal of time to find it, but doing so might go some way to getting the club out of the mire it finds itself in.

Last Saturday's 4-0 defeat, a shuddering five-minute capitulation before half time at the hands of fellow relegation strugglers Sunderland, should be enough to prompt drastic change in Allardyce's thinking. This...
