Crystal Palace will aim to get back on track as they host Leeds at Selhurst Park on Monday night.

Patrick Vieira's men deserve to end the campaign in a positive way after a season of immense progress under the Frenchman. But they are in danger of enduring a sloppy conclusion to the season after three consecutive defeats; an FA Cup semi-final loss to Chelsea has been sandwiched by defeats to Leicester and Newcastle.

Monday's opponents Leeds come into the game in fine form, having won three and drawn on in their previous four outings.

Here's how Vieira could set his side up to stop the rot.


1. Crystal Palace predicted lineup vs Leeds (4-3-3)

GK: Vicente Guaita - Crystal Palace number one Guaita has 10 league clean sheets to his name this campaign.

RB: Joel Ward -
Nathaniel Clyne has started Palace's last eight Premier League games but could be ousted by long-serving Ward.

CB: Joachim Andersen -
A regular staple of this Palace side, Andersen is in line for a 16th consecutive start.

CB: Marc Guehi -
Has already taken on the captain's armband aged 21, which is testament to his immense ability..

LB: Tyrick Mitchell -
Ever-present this season, there's no reason to doubt Mitchell's participation here.

DM: Cheikhou Kouyate - A real workhorse at the base of midfield, Kouyate has enjoyed a great season for Crystal Palace.

CM: Conor Gallagher -
It's no surprise the club wants to do all they can to keep hold of the wavy-haired dynamo; Gallagher's 11 league goal involvements show his quality.

CM: Jeffrey Schlupp -
Has been favoured over Will Hughes in recent times and has largely performed well.

RW: Jordan Ayew -
With Michael Olise doubtful to feature after going off against Newcastle, the hard-working Ayew may return on the right wing.

ST: Jean-Philippe Mateta -
Boasting three goals in his previous three Premier League starts, Mateta should come in to replace Odsonne Edouard.

LW: Wilfried Zaha -
Has been in solid form since returning from the Africa Cup of Nations - netting six goals in ten outings.
