Last season's performance

Crystal Palace appeared in relegation danger when the club decided to part ways with Patrick Vieira following a run of 11 Premier League matches without a win in March, before the return of former manager Roy Hodgson prompted a marked upturn in fortunes.

Having managed the club for four years between 2017 and 2021, the installation of Hodgson restored a sense of stability and calm at Selhurst Park, with the Eagles proceeding to lose just two of their final 10 league matches of the season with the former England boss at the helm.

Hodgson was able to take the shackles off of Palace's most gifted creative talents, most notably Eberechi Eze and Michael Olise, with the South London side registering 18 goals in these last 10 games of the campaign.

This outstanding end to the season saw Palace finish 11th in the table, remarkably one place above London rivals Chelsea, and 11 points clear of the relegation zone.

This season's prospects

The way Palace ended last season will have given the club's passionate fanbase hope of kicking on in the new campaign, and potentially challenging for a top-half finish in the Premier League for just the second time in 11 seasons, but their first goal will be avoiding relegation danger which they flirted with during last term.

Boasting a strong spine - with Sam Johnstone in goal, the formidable Joachim Andersen and Marc Guehi at centre-back, new recruit Jefferson Lerma and the impressive Cheick Doucoure in midfield, and the outstanding Eberechi Eze occupying the number 10 position, it's perhaps a reliable goalscorer up front which is limiting this Palace squad's potential.

It's certainly a group brimming with talent but injuries have certainly hampered them so far this term, with key duo Eze and Michael Olise struggling to stay fit consistently.
