Stoke City suffer relegation after their loss to Crystal Palace

Adjust Comment Print

West Brom will join the Potters in the Championship next season if they fail to beat Tottenham this afternoon.

The Potters are now three points adrift of safety with two games remaining, having played one match more than 17th-placed Swansea City.

Then, as Palace piled on the pressure, Van Aanholt struck four minutes from time as Stoke's worst run in the top flight for 34 years continued and Roy Hodgson's Palace could celebrate another year of Premier League football.

Stoke City have been relegated from the Premier League after they lost 2-1 to Crystal Palace at the bet365 Stadium on Saturday.

James McArthur followed up his goal in last weekend's 5-0 thumping of Leicester City with another clinical finish to draw the visitors level at the bet365 Stadium. While Benteke has been very disappoint this season, Palace have picked up 11 points in their last six games.

Bruno Martins Indi and Konstantino Stafylidis are ruled out for the hosts, and Glen Johnson and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting are doubts.

"I signed for another year because I thought we would be in the Premier League, it didn't even enter my head that we wouldn't be".

In early team news, Bakary Sako, Jason Puncheon, and Scott Dann remain the only long-term absentees for Palace ahead of this game.

With just an eighth goal in 12-and-a-half matches to their name, Stoke decided against going in search of another and instead sat deeper and deeper. Stoke are slight favourites to win at 17/10 odds at BetVictor, and a Palace win is available at 7/4 odds.

"That's what's hurt us the most". Stoke's best hopes for survival could come down to the final weekend of the season when they play Swansea.

Wilfried Zaha was impressive against the Foxes last week, and he is the favourite to score in this game at his best odds of 40/17 at Unibet.

Palace had the first big chance of the game as the ball found in-form Zaha on the right side of the box but his shot across goal was wide of the far post.
