Reason For Crystal Palace vs Leeds Predictions

  • Under 2.5 goals were scored in 12 of Palace’s last 15 Premier League home games.
  • Leeds scored one or fewer goals in four of their last five league matches.
  • Crystal Palace scored exactly once in each of their first three home league games this term.
  • Palace are averaging just 1.1 goals per 90 minutes overall this season.

Eagles in a flap

Crystal Palace’s slide down the Premier League table continued last week when the Eagles fell to a 2-0 reverse against Wolves at Molineux – a result that etched another black mark on a recent record that reads just one win in five games.

Palace’s 2-1 triumph at struggling new comers Fulham was their only victory during a poor recent sequence that saw the Eagles come unstuck against Chelsea, Everton and now Wanderers.

While Roy Hodgson has been doing his best to patch up his defence in the face of severe injuries problems, Palace’s lack of bite at the top end continues to be their most pressing issue.

Leeds get reality check

Leeds were given another reminder about how tough life can be in England’s top-flight, when Marcelo Bielsa’s slick-passers were picked off by a counter-attacking Leicester team at Elland Road last week.

The crafty Foxes sprang forward quickly to blitz their hosts in a 4-1 victory in a performance that shared some of the hallmarks of Wolves’ smash and grab triumph at the same venue a couple of weeks before.

For Bielsa, Leeds’ lack of cutting edge in the final third continues to be a concern, and last year’s Championship winners have now scored one or fewer goals in four of their last five Premier League fixtures.

Tight clash anticipated at Selhurst Park

Leeds’ inability to be clinical in front of goal and Crystal Palace’s notoriously well-drilled defensive manoeuvres should combine to make the teams’ skirmish at Selhurst Park a real battle for inches on Saturday.

The Eagles are averaging just 1.1 goals per 90 minutes this term, and while Leeds are hitting the net a healthier 1.8 times per game on average, their output has been noticeably regressing, with one or fewer goals notched in four of their last five assignments.

In addition, Roy Hodgson’s tactical blueprint looks entirely different than Marcelo Bielsa’s, and the ex-England’s manager’s defensive leanings routinely lead to low-key contests at Selhurst Park.

Remarkably, under 2.5 goals were scored in 12 of Palace’s last 15 top-tier tussles at that venue since December last year, and with both the Eagles and Leeds looking light on goal-scorers at present, the odds on under 2.5 goals being registered look favourable again.

In terms of a correct score prediction for Saturday, a 1-1 draw is advised. Palace scored exactly once in each of their first three Premier League home matches this term, while Leeds bagged exactly one goal in three of their last five contests overall.

With final third troubles prevalent on both sides of the dividing line, a single goal apiece looks about the upper limit of Palace and Leeds’ capabilities at present, and a share of the spoils looks a likely outcome.

Crystal Palace injuries and team news

Connor Wickham, Nathan Ferguson and Wayne Hennessey are all absent for Palace, while Roy Hodgson is also sweating on the fitness of Tyrick Mitchell, Joel Ward, Gary Cahill and James McCarthy.
