The Eagles sit some four points clear of the relegation zone as things stand while the Tigers are firmly in the bottom three with a points separating them from safety. As such this is a hugely important game for both clubs, however who if anyone will come out on top this weekend?
Crystal Palace enjoyed a tremendous run throughout March and April with some 19 points collected during that time, however three back-to-back defeats have undone all that good work and they head into this Sunday lunchtime clash with Hull City on the back of an emphatic 5-0 hammering to Manchester City, a result which angered boss Sam Allrdyce.
“Individuals did not perform to our usual standards,” he said to BBC Radio 5 Live. “My team was unrecognisable from what I've seen over the past two or three months - hopefully that is a one-off and the lads have got it out of their system ahead of the biggest game of the season next week at home to Hull.”
Hull City endured their own miserable result at the weekend with a 2-0 defeat to relegated side Sunderland at the KCOM Stadium. Given their solid form at home, the Tigers seemed a good bet to collect all three points against a woeful Black Cats, however they conceded to two set-pieces and dropped into the bottom three thanks to Swansea's surprise win over Everton.
Indeed Hull City have been poor away from home this season with just a solitary win and fourteen defeats on the road. Crystal Palace may have suffered defeat in their last two games at Selhurst Park but on the whole they have been solid on home soil and should enjoy a relatively easy ride as they collect all three points on Sunday and with it a place in next season's Premier League.
