Craig Shakespeare: 'We need points from Crystal Palace game'

Craig Shakespeare: 'We need points from Crystal Palace game'

He's 50/50 for Atletico but won't feature against Palace.

Sam Allardyce has won his last two home games against reigning Premier League champions as a manager, beating Manchester City with West Ham in 2014-15 and beating Chelsea with Sunderland in 2015-16.

The club said: "We are working with Uefa and the local authorities to establish the full facts of what took place and the reasons for the police response".

Allardyce remains without the injured Scott Dann, Pape Souare, James Tomkins, Fraizer Campbell and Connor Wickham, but Loic Remy is closer to a first-team return.

Palace go into the game on the back of Monday's 3-0 win over Arsenal - their fifth wins in six games which moved them six points clear of the drop zone.

The Leicester captain has missed the last five matches due to a back injury and he is far from certain to recover in time for the English champions' bid to overturn a 1-0 first leg deficit against Atletico.

We also notice it outside the club, not only in terms of the media, but also when talking to friends or acquaintances in Munich . But for today's match , key absences on both sides will play a large role in the result.

Their prison term follows their antics in Madrid as the Foxes prepared to take on Atletico in the Champions League.

And he is considering a repeat at Selhurst Park with the second leg against the Spaniards just three days later.

"I haven't seen the players yet this morning".

"With the individual ability of their wingers, Wilfried Zaha and Andros Townsend, our full-backs will have to work hard to keep them quiet". "We only had a light training session yesterday, so I really need to see what the injury situation is".

That will be a huge setback for the Premier League giants, as ultimately the bigger the release clause and the longer the contract, the more power it gives to Atleti in negotiations and could scupper any chance of signing Griezmann.

Crystal Palace are Sky Bet's 5/6 favourites for the victory with Leicester 100/30 outsiders while the draw is priced at 5/2. Enter your predictions for free here.
