Crystal Palace

Last updated: Sat 28 September 2019 08:45
In Brief

Mixed form shown so far. Main concern lack of goals. Practically at full strength, Wickham sidelined. Sakho slight doubt.

Looking Back

Palace were seconds away from third win in last 4 rounds when Wolves paid them visit last weekend, but after being unable to build on their lead Eagles paid the price and had to settle for 1:1 draw.

Failed to score goal in 4 of 7 official matches so far (1 of those in League Cup) and only once scored more than 1 goal. This main reason for concern.

Looking Ahead

Coach Hodgson is using 3 deep-lying inner midfielders in recent weeks, which leaves no room for Townsand in starting line-up (just 1 start in last 4 rounds).

The squad is at full strength with only player slight doubt being Sakho (foot injury). Big star Zaha able to overcome similar problem early in week, with Sakho also expected to do so on time.

Points of Interest

All of last season and after first 3 home games this term having worst conversion rate at home in entire top flight. In last 22 home Premier League matches scored with just 6.4% of shot attempts.

Norwich City

Last updated: Sat 28 September 2019 08:49
In Brief

Have 2 home wins already, but yet to earn anything on the road – 4 defeats in 4. Squad remains badly crippled. Missing 7 players, plus Fahrmann and Aarons doubtful.

Looking Back

Norwich suffered fourth consecutive away defeat (1 of those in League Cup) on visit to Burnley – 0:2 the score. Canaries continue to have serious problems away from home, they already conceded 9 goals in away matches while scoring just 1 themselves.

Crippled defence could be excuse, but still conceding 2 goals or more in 5 of 6 rounds played not good. Yet to keep clean sheet this season.

Looking Ahead

Coach Farke still without 7 long-term absentees, amongst them 2 important centre-backs, main goalie Krul and key holding midfielder Trybull. On top of that back up goalkeeper Fahrmann rated 50/50 and in race against time to overcome muscle injury.

To add to the issues Tettey was taken off limping last weekend and set to miss + last season’s highest scoring midfielder in the Championship Vrancic still out after missing last 2 rounds injured.

One bright news early return from injury for right-back Aarons and he is expected to travel, but not likely to start.

Points of Interest

Impressive Cantwell with 2 goals and 2 assists in 3 home matches, but yet to have major contribution on the road.
