Crystal Palace fan? We bet you can't get 100% on this Palace 19/20 season quiz. We'll start off with an easy one... Which side did Palace face on the opening day of the 19/20 Premier League season?

“But if you get Jack on a free, you need to get him fit. Come in pre-season, get fit, if you prove to me you can get fit then we will give you a contract. “
