Premier League action on Sunday as Palace and Leeds meet at Selhurst Park – 2:00pm GMT.

It’s a clash of seventeenth vs twelfth, as Palace host Leeds at Selhurst Park.

With the Premier League season well into its stride, Crystal Palace have managed to gain six points

This match gives Patrick Vieira’s Palace 90 minutes to get their season back on track. Their last outing resulted in a 1-2 loss to Chelsea, with a 0-0 draw against Newcastle United before that. Only a positive result will be good enough.

Also, a draw statistic of two in three fixtures is not all bad, but unfortunately will not bring the success Patrick Vieira’s men wishes for ultimately. Their position is seventeenth in the League and they have six points, that is, 1W, 3L and 3D having won one game, drawn three games, and lost three meetings.

When Palace host Leeds, they will do so on the back of one victory, one dart, and two defeat on their own ground.

A win in this fixture would take Crystal Palace’s points to 9 in the League.

Palace are no strangers this season to illness and injury and Patrick Vieira is concerned that Sunday’s fixture could see him without three of his key players.

Leeds United have so far accrued nine points in this season of the Premier League

Jesse Marsch’s men were held to a disappointing draw against Aston Villa in their last fixture, he will be keen to improve on that in this game.

Also, with two draws in three matches, Leeds need to develop a strategy for getting over the line in games. With a twelfth position in the league and 2 wins, 2 losses and 3 draws, they currently have nine points in the League having won two games, drawn three matches, and lost two fixtures.

Playing away from home, Leeds have drawn one game and lost two meetings.

A win in this fixture, would take Leeds United’s points from 9 to 12, so far this season.

Jesse Marsch will be forced to make changes to the plans for his squad, as injury or illness has depleted him of three of his Leeds players.
