Norwich City hosts Crystal Palace at the Carrow Road in a match from the 21th round of the Premier League
Norwich City hosts Crystal Palace at the Carrow Road in a match from the 21th round of the Premier League. Here are our usual English Premier League predictions for the week, so let’s take a look.
It’s a tough situation for Norwich and it’s getting more and more tougher. At this moment Norwich are 20th in the Premier League with just 13 points won so far and currently 6 points behind the 17th West Ham and the safety. They have won just three games from the start of the season and they are without a win in their last five matches.
On Saturday the Canaries won a point, though. Norwich City hosted Tottenham Hotspur at the Carrow Road and managed to secure a point with a 2-2 draw. Mario Vrancic scored for the hosts, while Spurs’ Serge Aurier scored himself an own goal.
Against Crystal Palace Norwich can’t use the Swiss duo Josip Drmic and Timm Klose because of injuries, while Ben Godfrey is also unavaliable for selection by the manager Daniel Farke.
Crystal Palace continue to do well this season. The Londoners are 9th in the league with 27 points and the manager Roy Hodgson can be absolutely satisfied with the way his team is performing. In their last five games in the Premier League Palace lost just once – against Newcastle United at the St. James’ Park.
On Saturday Crystal Palace won a point during their visit to Southampton at the St. Mary’s. James Tomkins gave Palace the lead, but the visitors were unable to hold on their lead and Danny Ings equalised for the Saints.
Against Norwich City Crystal Palace will be without the injured Christian Benteke, Patrick van Aanholt, Gary Cahill and Jeffery Schlupp, who are not avaliable for the manager Roy Hodgson.
In our English Premier League predictions we believe that Crystal Palace are favourites against Norwich City, but have it in mind that the Canaries won a point against Tottenham in their last game. Be careful.
