MATCH PREVIEW: Crystal Palace v Swans

28th December

The Swans will be hoping to build on the win over West Brom when they travel to Crystal Palace on Monday (3pm).
Swansea secured all three points on Boxing Day as they celebrated a first league win since October to move out of the bottom three of the Barclays Premier League.
They now head to Selhurst Park to take on a Palace side that are enjoying a fine season under the guidance of Alan Pardew.
The Eagles currently sit fifth in the table - just two points off of the top four - and Pardew's side return to home soil after their goalless draw at Bournemouth on Boxing Day.
Meanwhile, both teams could make changes after a 48-hour turnaround in the festive period, but Palace will be without both Yannick Bolasie (hip) and Connor Wickham (thigh) through injury.
