Crystal Palace News and Form
The Eagles are on a four-match losing streak at the moment, granted they have come through a tough sequence of games. But they are winless in seven with just the two points collected in what sequence, so there are bigger troubles. Aside from a meeting with Liverpool soon, they have a fairly comfortable run in but have to start delivering and snapping losing form can be a tough thing to do. The Eagles have scored in each of their last seven away games and a lot of attention will be on Wilfried Zaha after his return from injury and he’s worth a look in the Ladbrokes anytime goalscorer market. There has been no clean sheet in their last six games away from Selhurst Park in the league. Palace have only managed the ten away goals all season while they have conceded an average of 1.7 goals per game on their travels. Of the goals that they have come up with on the road, half of them have been in the final fifteen minutes of matches. They need to start coming up with something.
Huddersfield v Crystal Palace Head to Head
After a meeting in the EFL Cup this season, this will be the third clash between Palace and Huddersfield this season. The previous two were both at Selhurst Park with them sharing wins, Huddersfield winning there in the league before Palace took the EFL CUp win. The Terriers are W2 D2 L1 in their last five games against the Eagles. Both teams have scored in just one of the last five meetings.
Who will win – Huddersfield v Crystal Palace Predictions
