Match Preview

Crystal Palace have made a reliable start to the new Premier League season under Roy Hodgson. The Eagles already sit in the top half of the standings, and they could move to seventh in the table if they are able to pick up maximum points this weekend. Palace should be full of confidence ahead of this home match after claiming a 1-0 win at Old Trafford against Man United last weekend.

That victory was Palace’s third in seven this term, and they have suffered just two defeats. The Eagles already boast one of the best defensive records in the competition this season, as they have allowed just seven goals. Only Arsenal, Chelsea, and Man City have conceded fewer at this stage.

Nottingham Forest will be the visitors to Selhurst Park this weekend, as they look to bounce back after going three league matches without a victory. Forest comes into this final match before the international break after picking up a home point against Brentford in their most recent outing in the Premier League.

However, wins have been few and far between for Steve Cooper’s side this term, as they have landed just two victories from their opening seven matches. They will likely need to be stronger defensively if they are to test Palace this weekend, as they have already allowed ten goals this term.

Crystal Palace vs Nottingham Forest Prediction

It could be worth siding with Forest this weekend, as they have an excellent record against the Eagles. They have lost just once in the last ten against their rivals, winning five times over that period. They are also unbeaten in their previous five visits to Selhurst Park.
