Crystal Palace vs Norwich Betting Preview | 28 Sept 2019

While Crystal Palace may have had to settle for a point against Wolves last weekend, Roy Hodgson’s men will look to return to winning ways when Norwich come to town on Saturday afternoon.

On a run of form that has seen them lose just one of their last four top-flight appearances, a run that also saw them clinch a famous 2-1 win away at Old Trafford, the mood around South London is at a continued high.

On the flip side, Norwich are a side that are desperately hunting for some stability after making their Premier League return over the summer.

The Canneries could only slump to a 2-0 defeat away at Burnley last time out and Daniel Farke’s side are now on a run of form that has seen them lose four of their last five outings, including a shock 1-0 defeat away at League Two outfit Crawley last month.

You might be interested to know that with the Eagles securing back-to-back victories the last time the two sides met, Saturday’s hosts can be found at 1/1 with SkyBet to make it a trio of wins at Selhurst Park this weekend.

The Eagles shine in South London

While Palace boss Roy Hodgson may have been left “bitterly disappointed” to have seen Wolves snatch a 95th-minute equalizer last weekend, the former England boss should have plenty of positives to take away.

Bouncing back from their 4-0 defeat away at Spurs a fortnight ago, the Eagles have lost just one of their last four Premier League outings. More impressive, Saturday’s hosts have won eight points from their opening six Premier League games this season, their most after six games since the 2016-17 campaign.

Also snatching a famous 2-1 win away at Old Trafford last month, Palace have their sights set on securing a top-half return come May and can be found at 5/2 with Bet365 to find themselves in the top 10.

A huge part of Palace’s start to the new campaign has come thanks to their continued success at Selhurst Park.

Yet to taste defeat in South London in any of their opening three appearances on home soil and taking points off of Wolves, Aston Villa, and Everton, a 3-1 defeat against Manchester City last season is just their only loss at Selhurst Park since the 9th of March.

Norwich continue to struggle on the road

While a famous 3-2 win at home to the defending champions after returning from the international break may have boosted the mood in East Anglia, Norwich came crashing back down to earth last weekend.

Putting in a worrying display in their 2-0 defeat away at a struggling Burnley, Head Coach Daniel Farke has seen his side lose four of their last five matches across all formats.

While the former Borussia Dortmund coach might be calling on an immediate response from his men this weekend, the Yellows still find themselves as a leading contender for the drop this season.

Pencilled in at 15/8 with Ladbrokes to be hit with an immediate Championship return come May, only Newcastle, and Sheffield United hold worse odds.

A huge part of Norwich’s inconsistent start has come down to their struggles away from Carrow Road.

Saturday’s guests have lost each of their opening three matchups on their travels and have remarkably lost 12 of their last 13 contests away at Premier League opposition.
