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."
