I'm just gonna say we can't set up like we did against Leicester. I know that's pretty obvious, but we're up against loads of counter attacking pace. I'm fully expecting a goal against like the first goal Leicester scored.

I hate to say it, but we really have to set up defensively for this one. Two holding mids who stay in position with a back four. Palace may be dead last but they have a certain style of play that can rip our back end apart if we're not careful.

Realistically I'd be happy with a draw. Sad times, but that's reality.

Need to build on last week here, draw would be decent. Worried about set pieces against us though, we're shit in the air at the moment.

It's funny, I'm just as worried about set pieces for us.

We need a point.  And we need to set up to get that point.

It blows to say this but we need to just get any result on the road no matter who we're playing, and then take our chances at home to get 3 points. It's just where we are right now. If we do this we'll slowly work our way up the table and be fine.

This game scares me though. Palace play a way that can rip our back end apart and only have 30% possession.

At this point this is a good result. Don't care how we get points on the road, just get them.  A point next weekend and then Come back home and grab 3 and we'll be fine.

In my opinion we just need to not lose a game up untill the derby. Hopefully the players can build some confidence and then we can actually show up for it.
