Sometimes Premier League matches come along that just look as if they are going to be a tight old scrap. There is not likely going to be too much between Crystal Palace and Sheffield United on the weekend when they meet at Selhurst Park. The draw in the match outright is not likely to be far from the minds of punters for this one.

HEADLINE

The Eagles have only managed to pick up the one win in their last nine league games now. But they have drawn six of the fixtures played in that sequence. They were running along on a four match unbeaten streak of form at Selhurst Park before Southampton took a win there in the last round of fixtures.

Palace will get their influential midfielder Luka Milivojevic back for this one. Under 2.5 goals has happened in 10 of Palace’s last dozen top-flight home games. In their last six games against Sheffield United across all competitions, under 2.5 goals has happened as well. So there is a bit of a trend there and a low-scoring fixture here looks to be on the cards.

Our betting prediction:
Palace To Win
2/1

(odds taken 17:10 GMT, Friday 31 January)

Palace have produced a W4 D4 L4 record at home in this season’s top flight. All four of those defeats have happened against teams who are starting the weekend in the top half of the table. Three of them were against the current top three. Palace are only average 0.8 goals per home game in this campaign, but have taken a clean sheet in a third of games at Selhurst Park. Three of their four home wins have been by one goal margin only this season.

 

Can the Blades battle to points at Selhurst Park?

The Blades have claimed just one league win in their last six played. That was a home success against West Ham earlier this month. From their recent W1 D2 L3 record, all three of the losses that befell the Blades was against Manchester City twice and Liverpool. So those defeats can be written off.

Sheffield United have only won three times away from home this season (D7 L2) so there doesn’t appear to be a high chance of them getting three points at Selhurst Park. All of their away wins have been against sides who are staring at the weekend in the bottom half of the table. The Blades are averaging both a goal per game and a goal against per away game this season.
