Crystal Palace favourites for relegation next season - Pulis

Despite closing in on a top-10 finish this season, and looking likely to finish above their fellow promoted sides, the manager is keen to avoid complacency next term
Tony Pulis is adamant Crystal Palace are one of the favourites for relegation next season, despite the possibility of a top-10 finish this term.

15/2 Crystal Palace are 15/2 with Paddy Power to beat Liverpool on Monday
Pulis was installed as manager at Selhurst Park in November, with the club having won just once in the Premier League prior to that encounter - but the Welshman has since overseen 11 victories to avoid the drop.

Despite those heroics, Pulis is keen for everyone at the club to remain grounded and believes his side will be considered relegation candidates along with the three teams that are promoted from the Championship.

"The three clubs that come up - plus ourselves - will again be the favourites to get relegated," Pulis is quoted as saying by The Daily Mirror.

"People have truthfully got to keep their feet on the ground. This year has been unbelievable. A remarkable achievement.

"But you've got to do it again and again and again.

"You mustn't take your foot off the pedal and get complacent expecting more and more. That's what other clubs do and get in trouble."
