Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Following an unlucky 2-1 loss to Chelsea in the London derby, Crystal Palace will look to put an end to their four-game winless run when they face Leeds United on Matchday 10. The Eagles are eager to escape the danger zone, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Sunday’s clash. Odsonne Edouard should keep his place in the starting XI after scoring the opener in the local derby, while all Nathan Ferguson, James McCarthur, and Jack Butland remain in the recovery room.
Right back Nathaniel Clyne is unlikely to recover in time to face the Whites. The visitors, on the other hand, played out a goalless draw with Aston Villa in their last league match, with the team dropping to 12th place in the standings. Since Leeds are eager to return to winning ways as well, both teams to score betting option should be considered. All Sinisterra, Forshaw, Gray, and Dallas remain in the treatment room.
Highlighted Player (Sam Johnstone):
Sam Johnstone is an English goalkeeper who plays for West Bromwich Albion in the Championship. Sam Johnstone was born in Preston on March 25, 1993, but he began his youth career at Manchester United. However, despite being a Manchester United player, Johnstone did not see any game action with the Red Devils at senior level.
After spending seven years on loan at Oldam Athletic, Scunthorpe United, Walsall, Yeovil Town, Doncaster Rovers, Preston and Aston Villa, Sam Johnstone signed a four-year contract with West Bromwich Albion for a fee of around £6.5 million. The 193-cm tall shot-stopper wears No. 1 jersey and he has already established himself as a first-team regular at the Hawthorns outfit.
Sam Johnstone represented England at youth level, playing for England U16, U17, U19 and U20 teams, but he has yet to make his debut with the senior team. Sam Johnstone’s preferred foot is right and his contract with West Bromwich Albion should expire on June 30, 2022.
Highlighted Team (Leeds United):
Leeds United is one of the clubs that won the FA Cup. The Whites outplayed Arsenal in the final of the prestigious competition back in 1972, but they clinched the League Cup trophy as well. Leeds United faced the Gunners in the 1967/1968 League Cup final and it has to be noted that Terry Cooper scored the winner for the Whites.
Leeds play their home games at Elland Road and the capacity of the stadium is 37,914. The club was founded in 1919 and they have won three First Division (Premier League) trophies ever since (1968/1969, 1973/1974, 1991/1992). Leeds United made it to the Champions League final in 1975, but they were beaten by Bayern Munich in the title clash.
The Whites were impressive under David O’Leary. The likes of Jonathan Woodgate, Lee Bowyer, Harry Kewell, Mark Viduka and Ian Harte were part of the Elland Road outfit back then and they did well to reach the semis of the Champions League in 2001.
