PREVIEW: Palace hoping to take advantage of 'leggy' Swansea

KEITH Millen has picked out two men for Sunday's opponents Swansea City who Palace will need to watch out for.

Having played out a 2-2 draw against Liverpool at home thanks to Jonjo Shelvey and Michu's goals, Millen believes the latter will be "dangerous" and that the Eagles will need to take advantage of the Swans playing an extra match in the Europa League on Thursday, where they impressively swpet aside Spanish giants Valencia 3-0 away from home.

"I thought Liverpool were in control for 60 minutes, but then Swansea made a little bit of a change in midfield and suddenly took control of the game," the assistant boss said this week.

"They're a good footballing side and I think we've got to take advantage of their preparation with them playing Monday and then against Valencia on Thursday, and then coming to Selhurst on Sunday will be an issue for them.

"Michu and Wilfried Bony, if you let them link up, I think they're really dangerous.

"Two or three times, they're little one-touch, clever play around the box is a threat, and they certainly like to keep possession of the ball like Swansea have done now for a few years.

"They have slightly changed their style so we've got to make sure they don't get into some sort of pattern and flow, where all of a sudden they're comfortable and enjoying their game."

And Millen has called on the Palace fans to come out in force and make the visitors feel uncomfortable.

He said: "We can't allow teams to come to Selhurst and let them play. We've got to break them up and look to hurt them as well.

"Similar to Sunderland really, we had a good build-up and the fans got behind us and made it an intimidating place – it's got to be like that on Sunday."
