    Crystal Palace - v - Leeds United ***Matchday Thread***



    Crystal Palace captain Luka Milivojevic begins a three-match suspension following his sending off at Wolves.

    Gary Cahill and Jordan Ayew are both available once again but James Tomkins has suffered a minor injury setback.

    Leeds are assessing the fitness of winger Raphinha, who missed Monday's loss to Leicester with an ankle issue.

    Rodrigo has been ruled out because of a positive test for coronavirus, while Kalvin Phillips and Diego Llorente remain on the sidelines through injury.

    Crystal Palace have had the fewest shots of any team in the Premier League, with 57 in seven games, while only Liverpool have had more than Leeds.

    They both have the same number of points though - 10 - so you can see that, while they have a different approach, they both have a style that is effective.

    It will be interesting to see what Eagles boss Roy Hodgson does here - will he completely allow Leeds to take the game to his side and then look to pick them off?

    That is what Palace did against Fulham last week but Leeds are a lot more dangerous.

    MATCH FACTS

    Head-to-head

    Crystal Palace have won only one of their past eight matches against Leeds in all competitions (D2, L5). However, Leeds are winless in their last four trips to Selhurst Park (D2, L2). This is their first Premier League meeting since Leeds won 2-0 away in January 1998.

    Crystal Palace

    Roy Hodgson's side have won just one of their past seven home league fixtures (D2, L4). The Eagles have scored more than once in only one of their 12 Premier League matches at Selhurst Park in 2020. Palace have lost at least one home fixture against promoted opposition in each of the last five seasons.Crystal Palace have lost three of their past five league games (W1, D1), conceding at least twice in each defeat. A player has been sent off in each of their last three fixtures.Wilfried Zaha has scored five of Palace's eight Premier League goals this season.

    Leeds United

    The Whites are looking to win three successive Premier League away games for the first time since August 2002. They have not conceded an away goal in three hours and two minutes.Leeds have won just one of their past 20 league matches in London (D6, L13). Marcelo Bielsa's side have scored 13 league goals so far this season.

    The only promoted team to score more over the opening seven matches of a Premier League campaign are Nottingham Forest, with 14 in 1994-95.Patrick Bamford can become the first Leeds player to score in the opening four away games of a top-flight campaign.

    1 - 3.

    MOT.

    Worryingly weak team and virtually nothing on the bench except Poveda.

    Where are Raphina (still injured?) and Pablo (sulking?)

    This may not go well (but I hope I'm wrong).
