ABOUT
Another successful season for the Eagles comes to a close when the Swans come to town, themselves having enjoyed a fine campaign under Garry Monk with a guaranteed eighth place finish.

Palace don't have a great record against Swansea, having scored just two goals in their last seven games against the Welsh side, and the Jacks have won their last three games in SE25 without conceding.

Alan Pardew's side will need to keep an eye on striker Batefemi Gomis who has scored five goals in his last five games, but the Eagles have their own danger man in Glenn Murray who has netted seven in 10, as well as providing three assists.


TEAM NEWS
Crystal Palace: With a full-strength squad to choose from, there are plenty of options for Pardew who may decide to continue rotating his squad to look at some other players.

Last week's goalscorers Wilfried Zaha and Murray could be in line for a recall after registering from the bench against Anfield, while Mile Jedinak, Damien Delaney and Julian Speroni could also return.

Swansea City: The Swans' Player of the Year Ki Sung-yueng has been ruled out through injury after undergoing knee surgery, and ex-Palace star Wayne Routledge is also unavailable with an ankle problem.

Tom Carroll is struggling with a similar issue and will face a late fitness test alongside Angel Rangel, while Kyle Naughton and Jordi Amat have had their seasons ended prematurely.

LAST MEETING AT SELHURST PARK

Crystal Palace 0-2 Swansea City
Premier League


Swansea striker Michu produced a fine individual performance to inspire his side to a confident Premier League win over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

The Spaniard found the net after only 80 seconds when he got on the end of Jonjo Shelvey's through-ball.

Michu played a key part in Swansea's second goal after the break, finished off by Nathan Dyer from close range.

In a largely one-sided match, Palace threatened only sporadically and remain in the bottom three.
