Marcos Biesla’s 11th placed Leeds United welcomes Roy Hodgson 13th placed Crystal Palace to Elland Road today by 9pm.

The Monday night football features the two clubs who do are on the same points (29 points) with Leeds having played a game fewer.

A win today could take Leeds to 10th position, a point above Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal despite having played a game fewer (Leeds currently have 2 games in hand over Arsenal).

Leeds have had quite the season, going up at some point in the season and also coming down again. In their last five games in all competitions, Leeds have won only two, losing three games in that time frame.

But then Marcelo Biesla’s team who are known for their superb pressing would be out here to win. Leicester were one of the victims of Leeds style of play, with Leeds running out 3-1 winners at the King Power Stadium, stunning Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester City.

One man whose form has been very exceptional this season for Leeds United, has been former Chelsea player, Patrick Bamford, and he is predicted to score today against Crystal Palace.

Bamford has scored in two Premier League games against teams he’s previously played for in the competition, netting against Crystal Palace and Burnley this season and is one to watch out for.

The last player to score in three Premier League games against former teams in a season was Romelu Lukaku in 2017-18 (vs Everton, West Brom and Chelsea for Man Utd).

Though, Crystal Palace won’t be an easy pushover themselves, having won their last two matches.

Roy Hodgson’s Crystal Palace also won the reverse fixture, and would be looking to do a league double for the first time since the 1985/86 season in the second tier. They have never achieved this in the top-flight.

Also, Crystal Palace are looking to win three consecutive Premier League games for the first time since a run of four between February and June 2020, having won their past two matches in the Premier League (1-0 win against Wolves and 1-2 win at Newcastle).

One man who has been heavily involved in the recent good situation in Crystal Palace is Eberechi Eze. he has been involved in as many Premier League goals in 2021 in six appearances (2 goals, 1 assists) as he was in 14 appearances in 2020 (1 goal, 2 assists), though two of those were against Leeds in November, when he both scored and assisted.

In their past five games in all competitions, the both teams have conceded 8 goals, while Leeds have scored 6, Crystal Palace have scored 5.

This game promises to give goals, though Leeds have lost both of their Premier League games on Monday this season, with both coming at home (1-4 v Leicester, 0-1 v Wolves). Meanwhile, Crystal Palace are winless in their last eight Monday league games (D2 L6) since beating Arsenal 3-0 in April 2017.

But a strong and bold bet would be a home win for Leeds.
