Crystal Palace will visit Elland Road on Sunday for a Premier League fixture with home side Leeds.

Going into their upcoming encounter on Sunday, Leeds will be looking to finish the day ahead of The Eagles and therefore, swap positions with them in the Premier League standings.

1.2 Leeds go into their next Premier League match, scoring a humble average of 1.2 per game in their last ten matches. They scored a mundane 12 times, while conceding 16. That amounts to an average of 1.6 per game, where they kept their opponents from scoring one times.

The Eagles scored six goals, conceded 12 and kept their opponents from scoring two times in ten matches.

The last time these two teams faced off against each other, The Eagles came away as 2-1 winners. No doubt they are planning a similar outcome on Sunday.

Leeds vs Crystal Palace Prediction

Leeds Form

Leeds have been a little inconsistent recently, as they beat Wolverhampton by 2-4. Following that up proved too difficult, as they lost 4-1 against Arsenal, before claiming three points in a 2-1 win against Nottingham Forest. Leeds claimed a modest two wins in their past six home matches in the Premier League. They also drew three and lost one, scored seven goals and conceded seven.

Crystal Palace Form

Crystal Palace suffered a couple of disappointments in their last three matches as they were run over by Brighton in a 1-0 defeat. Arsenal also proved too hard to handle as they won 4-1, before Crystal Palace were able to strike back in a 2-1 win against Leicester. Crystal Palace are winless in their last six away games in the Premier League, in which they drew one and lost five. They conceded ten goals while scoring three themselves.

We are a little surprise to see the prices on offer at the bookies for a home win, as we think the form of Leeds is better than odds suggest. We back them to claim a home win against Crystal Palace.

Leeds so far pulled off a record of seven wins, eight draws and 14 defeats in the Premier League this season. Crystal Palace have seven wins, nine draws and 13 defeats in the Premier League.
