Norwich City have now seen 70% of their Premier League (PL) home games produce over 3.5 match goals, and have scored first in their last four league fixtures at Carrow Road, albeit they picked up just two points. They led at half-time in each of those games, with four of the last five conceded equalisers during that period coming in the 15 minutes immediately following the break.
Moreover, the fact that Norwich have also lost the previous three top-flight H2Hs won’t give home fans much confidence. Furthermore, the ‘Canaries’ possess an unbeaten rate of just 37.5% in the home league matches this term that they entered as betting outsiders.
Despite winning just one of their last six PL away fixtures (D3, L2), Crystal Palace have lost just one of their previous seven league games (W3, D3). Notably, if they lose here, it will likely be ‘to nil’ as the ‘Eagles’ have failed to score in each of their last five away league losses.
Eight of the 18 league goals (44.44%) Palace have scored this season came beyond the 75th minute. However, the majority of their conceded goals have also come after half-time (63.64%) for an average of 1.40 total goals per second half (PL only).
Players to watch: Norwich forward Teemu Pukki has scored his team’s opening goal in the last three league games in which he’s found the net.
Jordan Ayew has scored in three of the five away league games in which Palace have found the net this season.
Stat attack: Norwich’s last five PL home goals (own goals excluded) have arrived in the first half (four in the opening 30 minutes).
Palace’s last five PL away games have featured under 2.5 goals.
Each of the last three top-flight H2Hs held here have produced a 1-0 scoreline at half-time either way.
What time is kick off?
The match begins at 18:30.
