Palace Game

I'm coming up for it. It'll be my first home game for around 2 years (due to living in Spain and health reasons) staying over night (Saturday) couple of beers pre-match then quite a few after. Any decent pub to go to after the match that will have something on?

Taylor is a better left back then Pieters so should be in the team. Lowton needs dropping too although Bardsley replacing him isnt a massive plus but he's more solid. New RB is needed very soon.
