Crystal Palace - 11/4

Palace have looked like a new team under manager Oliver Glasner in the last few weeks and look a good-value bet to secure a fourth successive Premier League win when they visit Fulham on Saturday.

Both teams know they will be meeting again in the top flight next season after Palace's 2-0 home win over Newcastle on Wednesday, which means that none of the bottom four teams can now catch them.

The Eagles have a spring in their step after picking up nine points in just 11 days and all three of their wins were against teams who are above Fulham in the table.

First they stunned Liverpool with an Eberechi Eze goal at Anfield which shook up the title race and they backed up that result with a 5-2 home win over West Ham in which they led 4-1 at half-time.

The Eagles kept their foot on the accelerator with an excellent 2-0 victory over Newcastle at Selhurst Park thanks to a double from the in-form Jean-Philippe Mateta and now they have 13th-placed Fulham in their sights.

The Cottagers are stronger at home than away, with nine of their 12 league wins this season coming at Craven Cottage, but their form has cooled off with only one win in their last five outings and they have lost their last two home games against Newcastle and Liverpool.

Fulham's last two successes both came in London derbies against Tottenham and West Ham but they are not an attractive price to see off fast-finishing Palace, who look worth backing to secure a fifth away win of the season.

Over 2.5 goals - 8/11

Both teams can play with a little more freedom now they are safe and it would be a surprise if we see a repeat of the goalless draw the teams played out at Selhurst Park in September.

Palace have scored 10 goals in their last four games, which were all against top-eight teams but they have also conceded six times during this period.

Six of Fulham's last eight matches have featured at least three goals and they have failed to keep a clean sheet in nine of their last 12 Premier League home games, with both teams scoring in eight of those fixtures.

Palace have been shut out in only one of their last 13 matches and a wager on over 2.5 goals could pay in Saturday's game.

Eberechi Eze to score or assist - 5/4

Mateta has been grabbing the headlines in Palace's climb to safety as the French forward has scored twice in each of their last two games and now has nine goals in his last 12 appearances.

Eze has been a key player for the team, though, and he has three goals and two assists in his last eight games.

Eze is 3/1 to earn a place in England's squad for the Euros and has four Premier League games remaining to showcase his skills and make his case for a ticket to the finals.

He scored the winner at Anfield, scored and assisted a goal in the win over West Ham and had another great game in Wednesday's success against Newcastle.

Eze looks worth backing to either score or provide the assist for a Palace goal at Craven Cottage.
