The Eagles are continuing to build-up their fitness with a friendly clash against the Spanish side ahead of the start of the new Premier League season.

Millen insists that they are treating Saturday’s game as an important one as they look to put the final pieces of the jigsaw together.

The Palace assistant expects a difficult game and has revealed that Alan Pardew will not be looking to experiment with his team selection.

Millen told the Croydon Advertiser: “We will be as strong as we can be I would imagine.

“We don’t need to experiment anymore and the whole squad have had plenty of game time, which was the idea in pre-season.

“There will be a couple of players who haven’t played at Selhurst before in front of the home fans, so it will be an important game for that.

“It will be tough, and a good test – it will be a slightly different game to what it will be against West Brom the following Saturday.

“But the sharpness and quickness of Valencia will be a good test for us.”
