Xherdan Shaquiri gave Stoke a slim chance to survive as he opened the scoring in the 43rd minute but James McArthur and Patrick van Aanholt cancelled out the hosts' lead with two second-half goals.

The Potters are now three points adrift of safety with two games remaining, having played one match more than 17th-placed Swansea City.

- By contrast, Crystal Palace have won three of their last seven Premier League games in which they've gone in at half-time trailing (D1 L3).

Things then got worse rather than better after the break, with Palace the better team both before and after McArthur's leveller.

Stoke's last three games have ended in draws and with under 2.5 goals. "He may be back for the game with Swansea City next weekend, we will have to wait and see how he progresses".

"It's hard obviously but it's not one just about game", Ryan Shawcross said.

"Since the gaffer has come in we've had a right go and been in every game".

The IAAF defines athletes with DSD as any female with blood testosterone levels equal to or greater than 5 nmol/L. Athletes would be required to take these hormones up to six months before they will be allowed to compete.

The 70-year-old has done an impressive job at Selhurst Park following his early-season appointment, guiding Palace away from relegation danger after a horrific start to the campaign.

Here, we pick out five of the best stats from Saturday's Premier League action...

The Potters performances have veered between sterile and abysmal this season and while three draws in their last three isn't awful form, it's way short of what they need to avoid the drop.

The Serbian has missed just two Premier League games and is now captain of the side, top-scoring with 10 goals so far. The Potters can't afford to drop points when they welcome Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday afternoon, and they will also be hoping for multiple results to go their way this week. The supporters have backed us to the hilt and I feel it for them. I am feeling for everyone connected with the club.

Stoke City are the first team to be relegated from the top-flight this season, although West Brom will shortly follow the Potters to the Championship.

The win sealed Palace's safety, a remarkable achievement for former England manager Hodgson, who had to pull off a considerable feat of escapology after the Eagles' desperate start to the season under Frank de Boer.

"Great club with great fans".
