Chris Sutton Shares Thoughts on Crystal Palace’s Relegation Prospects

Following another loss leaving Crystal Palace just five points above relegation, Chris Sutton weighs in on their survival chances.

With only seven games left in the season, manager Oliver Glasner is under pressure to turn around their poor form. Currently, Palace sits narrowly above 18th-placed Luton Town, with their recent defeat to Manchester City adding to their woes.

The remaining fixtures present a daunting challenge, with all seven matches against teams higher up the table, including six in the European qualification race. Their tough run begins with a clash against Liverpool.

Speaking on the BBC’s Monday Night Club podcast, Chris Sutton expressed concern about Palace’s prospects, citing their challenging fixture list as a major obstacle to survival.

Acknowledging the difficulty of Palace’s remaining schedule, Sutton highlighted the importance of securing points to stave off relegation. With no easy games in sight, Palace must capitalize on winnable fixtures against West Ham, Newcastle, and Manchester United at home, as well as crucial away encounters with Fulham and Wolves, to ensure their Premier League status for next season.
