Leeds v Crystal Palace betting tips, odds is 2.02

leeds v west ham

For Marcelo Bielsa, huge wins over high-flying Leicester and Newcastle have been somewhat diluted by defeats to Spurs, Brighton and more recently Everton since the turn of the year. That patchy form explains their bottom-half-of-the-table status, but the enigmatic Bielsa will no doubt be itching to mark Leeds’ Premier League return with a top-half finish.

  • Leeds have won just three of their ten Premier League home games this season.
  • Crystal Palace have only lost four of their last 12 league games, with all of those defeats coming against top four challengers.
  • Five of Palace’s last 11 have ended in draws, including three 1-1 stalemates.

Palace likewise have followed a similar trajectory post-Christmas, pulling off some huge results over Wolves and Leicester, but coming up short against the likes of West Ham, in a 3-2 loss earlier this month and 10-man Aston Villa, in which they suffered a 3-0 drubbing on Boxing Day.

  • The former five fixtures had goals from both teams.
  • Seven of the last nine encounters had three or more goals.
  • The hosts had scored two or more goals every single match-up at this stadium since 2007.
  • Since 1993, only once have the home team kept a clean sheet at this ground.
