This weekend there is still “business as usual” in the English Premier League before the strongest league in the world says goodbye to a newly created, divided winter break. Only half of the league is in action this weekend, while the other half will play the 26th matchday one week later. On matchday 25, however, there is a full program again and two absolute defensive specialists face off in London’s Selhurst district – Crystal Palace welcomes Sheffield United.

The Super Eagles from the capital are currently in the secure midfield of the Premier League and are in eleventh place. The returning from Sheffield is even better. For many experts, “The Blades” were an absolute fix relegation, but the Wilder-Elf convinced with a lot of effort, passion and duel strength. In the table, this currently means the outstanding eighth place in the table. Bookmakers even see the advantage in the duel between Crystal Palace and Sheffield United according to current odds.
Crystal Palace – Statistics & current form
In the Super Eagles from Selhurst in London, the veteran of coach veteran Roy Hodgson gets through. The playful line often falls by the wayside. The defensive tries to be compact. The game forward is not necessarily pronounced, in the statistics of the goals scored, the team is in last place. The medium-sized company tries to achieve success largely by resting balls. The success of the club is not entirely wrong, after all, the club has been able to stay in the league in recent years.
Currently there are 30 points on the credit side after 24 games. This is the second highest in the last ten seasons in the English Premier League. Only in the 2015/16 season could the Super Eagles have even more points (31) at this time. For example, twelve months ago, Crystal Palace had only collected 23 points.
There are just 2.08 hits on average in the games with the participation of Crystal Palace. Only seven of the 24 league games ended with a successful tip for over 2.5. The season so far also shows that there is hardly any offensive play in the first half. Only five of the 22 goals of the season were scored in the first part of the game (negative value in the league). In Selhurst Park at home there was only one goal in the first half. In no home game this season there have been more than two goals or conceded. In total, Crystal Palace has scored three or more goals in only one of their last 32 PL home games.
In view of these statistics, the forecast for the duel between Crystal Palace and Sheffield United seems obvious, a less than 2.5 seems extremely likely. On the three-way market, we see no value in the home side. Of the last nine league games, the Super Eagles have only won the city derby against West Ham. Otherwise there were six draws and two defeats.
In terms of personnel, the 72-year-old head coach Roy Hodgson still has to do without central defender Mamadou Sakho, left-back Patrick van Aanholt and Jeffrey Schlupp (full-back / winger) and Max Meyer due to injuries on Saturday afternoon.
Probable lineup of Crystal Palace:
↪ Guaita – Kelly, Cahill, Tomkins, Riedewald – Kouyate, McArthur, McCarthy – Ayew, Tosun, Zaha

Sheffield United – Statistics & current form
“The Blades”, as the newcomer is called, by Chris Wilder are surely the positive surprise in the current Premier League season. In many places, the team was dubbed a permanent relegation. 14 laps before the end of the championship, the relegation ghost is almost completely dispelled. Sheffield is in eighth place on the table and is even within striking distance of the starting positions for the UEFA Europa League.
The main guarantee for this success is the strong defense around goalkeeper Dean Henderson. With just 23 goals conceded, Sheffield United has the second best defense in the entire Premier League. Only Liverpool (15) received fewer hits. The last time a promoted team had an even stronger defensive in the 2001/02 season (Fulham). With eight games without conceding a goal, Dean Henderson currently tops the list of the “clean sheet” (games without conceding a goal).
However, away games in London are not necessarily a strength of the promoted team. Sheffield has been without a win in the capital for 19 games in the top division. The last full success dates from October 1992. Since then there have been eight draws and eleven defeats. After all, the Wilder-Elf are still without an away loss in London this season. In the four previous games there was a draw to celebrate despite the deficit. For a renewed division of points, odds of just over 3.00 are currently being offered between Crystal Palace and Sheffield United.
There is currently not much reason to complain in the blades’ warehouse, but the current development is still being watched with a hawk’s eye. In calendar year 2020, the Wilder-Elf has only collected five points (one win, two draws). Only West Ham and AFC Bournemouth have so far scored fewer points (4) this year than the promoted team.
Probable lineup of Sheffield United:
↪ Henderson – Egan, Basham, O’Connell – Stevens, Besic, Norwood, Fleck, Baldock – Sharp, McBurnie
