Palace will be hoping to pick up their first win since the disappointment of being knocked out of the FA Cup at the semi-final stage by Chelsea.

Currently sitting in 14th a win for the Eagles will take them onto 40 points in the Premier League and up to 12th place, two points off the top ten.

They come up against a Leeds side that is still looking over their shoulders at the relegation zone.

Leeds' new manager Jesse Marsch is aware of the talent that Palace manager Patrick Vieira has at his disposal and is hoping his players will be focused to deal with the pressure.

The American manager has heaped praise on the Selhurst club ahead of the game.

Marsch said: “They have a lot of quality players who are dangerous in one versus one situation and in transition moments and they have a really good coach.

“Palace is a tough place to play at, so it will be a big challenge for us and require entire concentration and focus on the task in hand.”
