Crystal Palace boss Dougie Freedman feels the pressure will be on visitor’s Sheffield United when the sides meet at Selhurst Park at the weekend.

Crystal Palace boss Dougie Freedman feels the pressure will be on visitor’s Sheffield United when the sides meet at Selhurst Park at the weekend.

The Eagles know a victory would put them five points clear of their opponents, who currently occupy the final relegation place in the English Championship.

A win for the Blades, however, would lift them above Palace and dump Freedman's side back in the drop zone.

"It is a big game - but it is a big game for them as well," said Freedman.

"They need to come here and not be beaten. It is a game we are all looking forward to."
