On Saturday February 27th, Alan Pardew took his horribly out-of-sorts Palace side north to the Hawthorns to face former Palace manager Tony Pulis' West Brom in front of Sky's cameras for the evening kick-off. Palace would be hoping to capitalise on their shock 1-0 FA Cup win over Spurs the previous Sunday and cement a turn-around in their fortunes. Before this game they had gone nine games without a win in the league and were yet to score two goals in a game (in the league) in 2016. West Brom's form has been up and down all season and this was punctuated by their previous two results. An impressive 1-0 win away at Everton in the league was followed by a disappointing 3-1 defeat at the hands of Championship side Reading in the FA Cup that culminated in one of their own fans throwing a coin at West Brom stalwart Chris Brunt. The previous meeting between the sides was at Selhurst Park and it ended with Palace taking all three points in a 2-0 win after Bolasie and Cabaye scored to cap off an impressive performance. Team News: Palaces recent injury worries have all but cleared up, with Bakary Sako and James McArthur the only notable absentees. West Brom would be without Jonny Evans and James Morrison, while Saido Berahino continued his re-integration into the first team.
