Captain Mile Jedinak has said he is hopeful of a good performance from the Eagles in their Premier League opener at Norwich City's Carrow Road tomorrow, as he eyes "a big three points" to kick off the season.
The 31-year-old midfielder gave his views on the upcoming campaign, starting with Saturday afternoon's trip to welcome the Canaries back to the top flight, insisting that everyone at the club is targeting a fast start this time out.
"Everyone's raring to go, I think everyone's really looking forward to the challenge. Not only for the season, but starting with Norwich," said the Australia international, speaking on Wednesday morning at the official Premier League launch day.
"It would be good to hit the ground running and put in a good performance, and hopefully come away with a big three points."
Jedinak has been playing at his imperious best during pre-season, having enjoyed a longer summer break than he has been afforded in recent years - despite still representing Australia in June.
Last summer he was leading the Socceroos out at the World Cup - where he became the first Palace player to score in the competition - before leading them to Asia Cup glory in early 2015.
"I'm used to having not too long a break," he said. "But it's helped, I feel great going forward and going into this new season and I'm really excited at the prospect of what might be."
