4 Players Crystal Palace Will Struggle to Keep Hold of if They Get Relegated This Season

Crystal Palace are currently involved in a relegation scrap at the bottom of the Premier League. Having hired 'Big Sam' to help them stay in the top flight, things aren't going how they would've liked or needed. 


We take a look at four players that would likely leave Selhurst Park if the Eagles fail to maintain their Premier League status.

4. Yohan Cabaye

Cabaye, like many players, has failed to make an impact for Palace this season. The French midfielder has all the right talents to start for many Premier League sides, but has struggled to find form.


At 31 the former Newcastle man wouldn't cost an arm and a leg, but Palace may demand more if they see him as a vital player that would help them get promoted.

3. Steve Mandanda

Mandanda's move to Palace surprised a few in the summer. The French goalkeeper joined from Marseille at the beginning of the season and has endured a topsy-turvy time at Selhurst Park.


The 31-year-old was a Champions League regular before his move and he will probably not like to see himself plying his trade in the Championship.


With 'keepers seeming to have no age barriers, Mandanda could join a Premier League side with a view to performing at the top level through the latter stages of his career.

2. Christian Benteke

For whatever reason it just hasn't gone right for Christian Benteke at Crystal Palace since his move in the summer.


The Belgian international has struggled finding the back of the net and has been a shadow of the player he was at Liverpool and Aston Villa.


Having cost £32m, he wouldn't be sold on the cheap, but the big Belgian could prove himself to be worth every penny if he finds his form again at the right club.

1. Wilfred Zaha

Despite being a fan's favourite at Selhurst Park, Zaha would be seriously considering his future if Palace were to go down.


The now Ivory Coast international has his fair share of bad performances, but there's no doubting the talents the tricky winger possesses.


Tottenham are long term admirers of the 24-year-old and would definitely make a move should Sam Allardyce's team go down.

At the start of the season, not many would've predicted Palace to be so near to the bottom of the league, however things just haven't gone well at Selhurst park this campaign.


Whether they can stay up will remain to be seen, but Sam Allardyce has a lot of work to do.
