Crystal Palace vs West Brom preview: What time does it start, where can I watch it live?

It’s a big game for…

Saido Berahino: He and West Brom have never seen eye to eye, and it is reported he has recently turned down a new contract that would make him the highest-earner at the Hawthorns. Palace have already made a bid for Berahino to boost their fairly dismal options up front and he so if he is truly set on a move then now would be the time to impress.

Best stat…

Crystal Palace and West Brom have faced each other in every tier of professional English football throughout their histories.

Player to watch…

Andros Townsend: Despite his obvious ability, at 25 Townsend has never really settled down in one side throughout his career. At Spurs he only managed 50 appearances in 7 years at the club after being loaned out left right and centre, and recently jumped ship from relegated Newcastle after only half a season. Palace already have plenty of quality out wide in Zaha and Bolaise but Townsend provides more threat in front of goal than the former while the latter looks ever more certain to leave for Everton.
