Palace plays a useful game

As I noted earlier, last weekend Crystal Palace was briefly out of the relegation zone, but when Leicester City won (last year's champions are also fighting to stay up top), Palace dropped back into the bottom 3.   As I also noted, if everything went as expected, i.e., no upsets, everybody would stay in the same place.

Well, Palace pulled the upset on West Brom, which is coached by the coach that saved Palace their first year in the Premier, Tony Pulis.  That gets them out of the relegation group.  So maybe by defeating his current team, Palace can claw and scratch from this position to stay where the money is.

It'll be tough, but that's what makes it interesting, right?
