After heavily investing in his squad for their Premier League return, Slaviša Jokanović’s playoff final winners will welcome London-rivals Crystal Palace to Craven Cottage on Saturday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, it really has been a season of ins and outs in West London this summer. After gaining a long list admirers for their eye-catching style of football, Jokanović has also done an impressive job of bringing in the likes of Alfie Mawson, Jean Seri and last years top scorer Alexander Mitrovic on a permanent deal. However, while only three Premier League sides have spent more this summer, The Cottagers have struggled in pre-season and will know they need to hit the ground running. Coming off the back of a 2-2 draw with La Liga side Celta Vigo, the hosts on Saturday failed to win any of their last five pre-season outings.
As for Crystal Palace, Roy Hodgson will just be desperate to avoid a similar start to last season. After failing to win or even find the net in their seven opening games last year, Palace enjoyed a late push away from the relegation zone and enjoyed a solid summer under the former England boss. Coming off the back of a 4-1 win over Toulouse last week, The Eagles remarkably won all of their five pre-season outings and have been in emphatic in front of goal. Most importantly managing to keep talisman and last years Player of the Season Wilfred Zaha, while they did keep just one clean sheet in their five victories, the London club managed to score 19 times.
