Palace fans will have the option to view their games on TV after three fixtures were moved to be on SkySports and BT Sports.

The fixture changes come as the challenge at the top and the bottom of the league heats up, with Arsenal and Liverpool looking for Champions League spots and Crystal Palace facing relegation rivals.

The home fixture against Arsenal has moved to an 8pm kick off on Monday, April 10 live on Sky Sports.

Palace fans will have a weekend trip to Anfield, with the away trip to Liverpool moved to 4.30pm Sunday, April 23 live on Sky Sports.

Finally, the home game with Burnley has been moved to a 5.30pm kick-off on Saturday, 29 April live on BT Sport.

Crystal Palace head into the final stages of the Premier League season looking to avoid relegation to the Championship.

Having announced the appointment of former England manager Sam Allardyce in late December 2016, Palace are looking to pick up enough momentum to bring them out of the relegation zone.

With 12 games left in the season, Palace still face some of the toughest teams in the league, with fixtures against Tottenham, Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United still to come.

Coming off their recent much needed win against Middlesbrough, this weekend Crystal Palace will head to The Hawthorns to face West Bromwich Albion, who currently sit 8th in the league.

Palace will be hoping that £32million signing Christian Benteke will make an impact on the game, having only scored once since Allardyce’s appointment.

The team will also be hoping for an impact from Liverpool loan-signing, Mamadou Sakho, as the renown defender looks too sure up Crystal Palaces sometimes flimsy defence.

With Allardyce yet to make a consistent impact on the team (two wins, one draw and six losses) since his arrival, ‘Big Sam’ will look to the experience in his squad, to bring Palace back to a string of form.

Crystal Palace fans have been in the news in the past week for vandalising their own team bus by mistake.
