Vs Newcastle (A), April 30

Despite reaching the 2016 FA Cup final; where they will return to Wembley to face Manchester United next month, the Eagles are still not mathematically safe from suffering relegation from the Premier League this term. Currently eight points above the drop zone, Crystal Palace have the potential to preserve their top-flight status this weekend during their trip to St James’ Park, providing they secure all three points and other results go their way. However; the Magpies have been buoyed by their recent run of results, including a 3-0 win over Swansea City, with Shoot predicting a second win in the Toons’ last four league outings after the Eagles’ FA Cup triumph.

Shoot Says: 2-0 loss

Vs Stoke City (H), May 7

The final home game at Selhurst Park sees Alan Pardew’s side welcome Stoke to London, with the home supporters desperate to celebrate Premier League survival, if they hadn’t already up in Newcastle the week before. Having conceded four goals in each of their previous three league outings, the Potters are currently in free fall, meaning Palace should fancy their chances of at least earning a point – one that could prove crucial in their bid to beat the drop.

Shoot Says: 1-1 draw

Vs Southampton (A), May 15

Almost unarguably; most fans will be keen for the Eagles to pick up a bit of form the weekend before their FA Cup final against Manchester United, however getting a positive result away at St Mary’s Stadium will be a huge challenge for Pardew’s visitors. Southampton are still on course and within a fighting chance of securing European football for the second successive season, so they’ll be just as hungry to snatch all three points in a bid to beat rivals West Ham United and Liverpool in the top-half of the table. We think Palace will hit that destined 40-point mark; maintaining their Premier League status, but nothing else more. Focus will instantly turn to Wembley afterwards!

Shoot Says: 2-0 loss

Overall Points: 40
Final Position: 15th
