There will be an interesting battle at Elland Road on Sunday in the Premier League, as two of the sides in the relegation battle lock horns. Leeds United will be looking to maintain their recent strong run of form, as they have won two of their last three.
Premier League Preview
Things are looking up for Leeds United at this stage, as they have recorded two wins from their previous three matches to move up to 13th in the Premier League standings. Another victory this weekend would see them move above Crystal Palace into 12th. However, they will still have one eye over their shoulders, as they remain just two points clear of the relegation places.
Leeds picked up a huge three points in their previous Premier League match, as they came back from 1-0 down to record a 2-1 success against Nottingham Forest. Jack Harrison replied for the Whites after 20 minutes, before the eventual winning goal in the match was netted by Luis Sinisterra in the first minute of injury time at the end of the first half.
Crystal Palace felt that there was a need for a change in management during the international break, as Roy Hodgson was brought back to the club to replace Patrick Vieira. The former boss made an immediate impression on his return, as the Eagles managed to record a first league win of 2023 to ease their relegation worries.
The success ensures that they remain 12th in the standings, while there is now a three-point gap between themselves and the bottom three places. Palace will be looking to build on that strong win at home against Leicester City on their travels this weekend.
Leeds United vs Crystal Palace Head to Head
Palace won the previous meeting between the sides this season. However, that success ended a three-game winless run against the Whites. The Eagles come into this fixture without an away win against Leeds in over ten years, and they have lost on each of their previous five visits.
Leeds United vs Crystal Palace Prediction
Away victories when these two sides meet are a rarity, and it could be a trend to follow with this showdown in mind. Leeds has turned a corner in recent weeks, and their home form throughout the season has been reliable. Therefore, we will be siding with a victory for the hosts at Elland Road.
