Crystal Palace travel to face Wolves in the Premier League as Patrick Vieira looks to boost his side's charge into the top half of the table.

Jairo Riedewald's late winner sealed the Eagles' place in the last eight of the FA Cup in midweek in a 2-1 victory over Stoke.

It means Vieira's side have now lost just once in their last seven games in all competitions, with Hakim Ziyech's stoppage time winner for Chelsea last month the only blot on the Palace copybook in recent weeks.

In the meantime, here's how the Eagles could line up this weekend.


1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Jack Butland (GK) - Vicente Guaita has been dealing with a knee injury but has been an unused substitute in Palace's last two games.

Nathaniel Clyne (RB) - Deputised for the injured Joel Ward and he was impressive last weekend.

Joachim Andersen (CB) - His searching diagonals out of defence is a common attacking ploy for Palace.

Marc Guehi (CB) - Has made a big impact in a defensive sense since his arrival from Chelsea in the summer.

Tyrick Mitchell (LB) - A mainstay in the Palace side for the last few seasons and his performance levels have rarely dipped.

2. Midfielders

James McArthur (CM) - Missed a chunk of the season with a hamstring injury and he will be keen to make up for lost time.

Conor Gallagher (CM) - He remains Crystal Palace's joint-top scorer in the league this campaign with eight goals to his name.

Jeffrey Schlupp (CM) - Netted the opener against Burnley last weekend playing in a slightly more advanced position.

3. Forwards

Michael Olise (RW) - Twisting and turning, then twisting again. The Frenchman has made a huge impression in his debut season in the Premier League.

Jean-Philippe Mateta (ST) - Netted his first goal in just over a month in Palace's 4-1 win over Watford last midweek.

Wilfried Zaha (LW) - Vieira has been keen to play him centrally, but Zaha's pace on the flanks will be vital away from home.
