  118. The teams are coming out at Selhurst Park.

  119. Crystal Palace have failed to score in each of their last four league games against Swansea City, losing the last three in a row. What are you predicting today?

  120. Swansea won only one of their six games against newly-promoted sides last season in the Premier League (D4 L1).

  121. Palace look a big price at 23/10. Can they upset the apple cart and beat a Swansea side who face their third game in a week?

  122. Palace have fashioned more chances from counter attacks than any other side in the Premier League this season (4).

  123. Swansea will be on a high following their midweek highs in Europe and are 6/5 favourites to grab another win on their travels.Palace are 23/10 and the draw is available at 12/5.We offer 8/1 that Swans' strike partnership Wilfried Bony and Michu both find the net while for Palace Dwight Gayle and Marouane Chamakh are 12/1 to do likewise.

  124. Intriguing clash in prospect because this will be Swansea's third game in a week, while Palace haven't played for two weeks. Could Palace upset the form book?
