The Eagles are looking for the first win in six Premier League matches, while the Blades are hoping to get their first win of the season. They won both H2H duels last season without conceding a goal in the process, but will that be the case this time around, check out in our Crystal Palace vs Sheffield United Preview.
Crystal Palace Recent Form & Team News
Crystal Palace lost four of eight Premier League matches since the international break in November (W1, D3). Furthermore, they allowed an unanswered average of 2.67 goals per game in the second 45 minutes in the previous three losses therein. Each of the Eagles’ last six PL defeats actually saw them fail to find the back of the net.
In contrast, each of Palace’s previous four wins provided over 2.5 game goals and witnessed both teams score. Roy Hodgson’s side managed to open the scoring in the first 15 minutes in those matches. However, Palace didn’t get a win in the last four games at Selhurst Park (D2, L2). They lost the only prior PL home match this season in which they entered as favorites.
Player to watch: Jordan Ayew netted a second-half equalizer in Palace’s first PL match at home in 2020 (D 1-1).
Roy Hodgson cannot count on Nathan Ferguson (knee), Wayne Hennessey (knee), Martin Kelly (calf), and Connor Wickham (ankle). Gary Cahill (thigh) is questionable to play.
Sheffield United Recent Form & Team News
Sheffield United (D2, L14) are on a course to become the first Premier League team to end winless and on single digits. The Blades can only hope the club’s situation of 30 years ago will repeat on Saturday. Namely, their 17th league match of 1990/91 provided a one-goal difference victory (the first league win of that campaign) following goalless opening 45 minutes.
This time around, 11 of their previous 13 PL losses arrived by that same one-goal difference, implying that a turnaround could be around the corner. It’s interesting that a game-deciding goal came in the last 30 minutes in six (54.55%) of those 11 defeats.
Player to watch: David McGoldrick gave the Blades a short-lived lead in the first ten minutes on their previous visit to London (L 4-1).
Chris Wilder will be without Sander Berge (thigh), Phil Jagielka (illness), and John Lundstram (suspension). Jack O’Connell (knee) and Billy Sharp (illness) are also out, while Oliver McBurnie (knock) is questionable.
