Stoke City vs Crystal Palace
STK vs CRY Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
This is really the business end of the season and few good results in the last remaining games may save the whole season for the teams currently fighting for their Premier League future.
Stoke City is one such team which is in deep trouble and despite picking up a valuable point away at Anfield against Liverpool last weekend, they remain 2nd from the bottom and one of the favorites to go down to the Championship.
Potters are three points away from the safety, but most importantly, they have played a game more than the four teams currently sitting above them. So their destiny may well be out of their hands and even the six points from the last two games may not be enough to save their stuttering season. But a win in this match will at least keep them in the mix, so Paul Lambert has no other option but to devise a perfect tactic to earn all three points in this home game.
Crystal Palace, on the other hand, may have saved their Premier League status with a 5-0 hammering of 2016 Champions Leicester City. That win took them to 11th and six points clear of the relegation zone. Mathematically, they are still not out of danger just yet, however, on current form the Eagles should be confident of finishing the job in their next game.

STK vs CRY Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Paul Lambert has had enough time to turn the fortunes around for Stoke City, but the former Norwich City manager failed to create any momentum for the Potters. As things stand, they are destined for the Championship unless they win both their games and hope that other results on in their favor.
Crystal Palace are unbeaten in their last four games and are fresh from pounding Leicester City in the last game. They have the pace and the trickery to punish the hosts who have no choice but to attack.
We are backing Palace not to lose this game.
