It has been a fine run for Leeds in the Premier League, as their two wins in their previous three games have moved them up to their highest position since the ninth round of fixtures. The Whites now sit 13th in the overall standings, and have opened up a two-point advantage over the bottom three.
Leeds picked up a crucial victory in their last match, as they came back from 1-0 down at Elland Road to record a 2-1 success over Nottingham Forest. Jack Harrison and Luis Sinisterra netted the goals. The win was their sixth at Elland Road this term, meaning that they have won three more games in front of their home fans than they have on the road.
It has been all change at Selhurst Park over the past couple of weeks, as Roy Hodgson was brought back to the club to replace Patrick Vieira. There was an immediate response from the team, as they registered a first league win in 2023 in their previous match against Leicester City.
Still, the Eagles have work to do to confirm their Premier League status, as they remain just three points above the drop zone. Their away record would be a huge concern coming into this fixture, as they have won just twice in 14 games away from Selhurst Park this term.
Since Leeds United returned to the Premier League, this fixture has been won on four of five occasions by the team playing at home. Furthermore, there has been a home victory in eight of the last 12. Therefore, we will side with Leeds maintaining their push to safety, with Patrick Bamford finding the back of the net.
