Crystal Palace and Leeds United are only separated by goal difference in 13th and 12th place respectively.

Palace are looking for a first home victory since the opening weekend, while Leeds can achieve three straight Premier League away wins for the first time since August 2002. 

Team news

Palace have Jordan Ayew and Gary Cahill available for selection, but Joel Ward, Tyrick Mitchell and James Tomkins are all ruled out.

Leeds will again be without Rodrigo after the Spaniard tested positive for COVID-19. Kalvin Phillips and Diego Llorente remain sidelined while a late decision will be made on Raphinha (ankle).

Did you know? 

Palace are unbeaten in their last four home league matches against Leeds (W2 D2).

The Eagles have scored with 14 per cent of their shots so far, their best conversion rate in a Premier League season since such records began in 1997/98.

Leeds have won three of their last four PL meetings with Palace, but have won just one of their last 20 league fixtures in London.

Patrick Bamford has scored in all three of his PL away matches this season, netting five goals in those contests. The last Leeds player to score in four consecutive top-flight away fixtures was Mark Viduka in August 2002.
