BBC Sport pundit Michael Brown has been answering your questions on all things Premier League.

Mike asked: What do Crystal Palace need in order to improve their performance in the final third?

Michael replied: Eberechi Eze and Michael Olise have been missing at times and that has given them inconsistency. They need those two players fit.

There is still talk of needing a number nine, a key striker who can bag 20 goals a season. That is an area of the pitch Oliver Glasner will be looking to change.

He has changed the set-up and style, but he will want to be more progressive and quicker in transition.

They need a number nine - but they must be realistic. Who can they go and get? Do you take a risk on someone people have not heard of?

Palace are in a tricky situation and it all depends on how much they can go and spend.
