Over the last five home league matches, Crystal Palace have scored just twice and have been clean-sheeted three times.
Why you should back Crystal Palace
Crystal Palace have one of the league’s best forwards outside the ‘big six’ teams in Wilfried Zaha. The 30-year-old from Ivory Coast has scored 67 goals in 284 Premier League matches for Crystal Palace in his career. This season he has scored six times, with two assists, in 20 EPL games.
In addition, Palace have been formidable in primetime home matches recently. Since Patrick Vieira took over as manager in July 2021, Palace have played 13 fixtures at home in games kicking off at 5.30 p.m. local time or later and have lost just three times.
