Two sides who are coming off respective defeats in the Premier League last weekend lock horns this weekend. Crystal Palace will be playing host to side Leeds United at Selhurst Park. The match schedules for Saturday with kickoff at 6 pm.
In their last time out, Crystal Palace suffered a 2-0 away defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers. Leeds proved to be less of a match for Leicester City at Elland Road.
Since their historic win at Old Trafford, things have not been going all rosy for Roy Hodgson. The Eagles have only one win to show from their past five matches. Palace managed to pick four points from a possible six in their last encounters against Brighton and Fulham.
Ryan Nouri netted a debut goal for Wolves while in-form Podence made a complete win against the Eagles. The night saw Milijovecic send off early in a forgettable night for Hodgson. However, Wilfred Zaha enjoys a stellar start to the Premier League so far with five goals and one assist.
After making their triumphant return to the Premier League, Leeds has been serving spectacular displays so far. Bielsa put up a tactical master class against Liverpool and Manchester City. However, Brendan Rodgers outwitted him last weekend at Elland Road, ending in a 4-1 loss. Tieleman’s saw in-form netting a brace last weekend.
