Preview

Crystal Palace host Fulham in a London derby on Sunday, as Scott Parker's side look to make it out of the relegation zone.

Fulham are currently 18th in the Premier League, three points off Newcastle, with a superior goal-difference to Steve Bruce's men. Scott Parker will hope his side can extend their four-match unbeaten streak against a feisty Crystal Palace side.

Roy Hodgson's men snapped their two-game losing streak with a 2-1 against Brighton win in midweek. Crystal Palace are currently 13th in the Premier League, with a win on Sunday potentially taking them into the top half of the table.

Sunday's match is sure to be highly competitive, with both teams ready to put in a shift in order to get a win.


Crystal Palace vs Fulham Head-to-Head

The recent head-to-head record between the two sides will give Roy Hodgson's men some confidence heading into Sunday's fixture.

Crystal Palace have won three out of the last five competitive meetings between the two sides, with Fulham's only victory coming back in 2013.

Roy Hodgson's men will be looking to do the double over Fulham on Sunday as Crystal Palace were 2-1 winners at Craven Cottage earlier this season.
