Crystal Palace vs Sheff Utd prediction

HINT: Crystal Palace ODDS: 2.14 2 JAN @ 15:00

Crystal Palace will be looking to end a six-game winless streak when they host rock bottom Sheffield United at Selhurst Park on Saturday.

The Eagles earned a respectable 1-1 draw at home to Leicester City before the New Year and head into this weekend’s game with a day’s extra rest.

It’s been a frustrating season for the Blades, who were handed another single-goal defeat as they went down 0-1 at Burnley to finish 2020 with just two points after 16 games. More worryingly for Chris Wilder’s side is that they have scored just eight goals in 24 hours of Premier League action (excluding stoppage time).

Palace have the ability to add further heartache to the Yorkshire club this weekend and with the likes of Wilfried Zaha, Eberechi Eze and Christian Benteke in attack I have confidence they can break Sheffield United’s goal.

However, Roy Hodgson’s side are still without a clean sheet since the opening weekend of the season so they will likely need to score at least twice in this one. I am quite confident in this one but wouldn’t be touching them if they were odds on.

Value bet: Crystal Palace to win is 2.14 at Betfair
