Crystal Palace will be hoping to give their travelling support something to shout about in their final away game of the Premier League season on Thursday night.

Here is the starting XI Vieira seems most likely to go with…

Vicente Guaita (GK) – Jack Butland started between the sticks against Aston Villa but natural first-choice Guaita will likely replace him here.

Nathaniel Clyne (RB) – Clyne has enjoyed a terrific calendar year so far and deserves to go into next season as Vieira’s starting right-back.

Marc Guehi (CB) – The former Chelsea man has been composure personified since his summer switch.

Chiekhou Kouyate (CM) – Recently caused controversy All Rights Reserved - (0750-907-382) supporting international teammate Idrissa Gueye in his decision to refuse to wear the pride rainbow. Vieira confirmed he would speak with him about the incident.

Jeffrey Schlupp (CM) – Came on the grab the equaliser against Aston Villa – his fourth Premier League of the season.

Eberechi Eze (RW) – Has probably put in his best displays in a Palace shirt since returning from injury in recent weeks.

Odsonne Edouard (ST) – Jean-Philippe Mateta’s goal drought means Edouard should be handed a start.
