After your first 17 games under new coach Patrick Vieira, you can take an assessment in south London. So far, the Eagles have only been placed under 15th in the first round.
Currently leading by nine points in 18th place, the club has so far managed to stay out of the relegation battle. Plus, things are going well at home in Selhurst Park.
Only five Premier League teams have scored more home points than the Eagles in the 2021/22 season. In nine home matches, there has been only one defeat, 1:2 against Aston Villa.
However, in the first half of the season so far, most of the league’s heavyweights have had to play away from home. So the balance sheet at the discount place is not a good read yet.
Vieira-Elf has only been able to win one of its eight guest matches. This victory was very surprising with a 2-0 win over defending champions Manchester City.
Since the last match against Watford was canceled, the Eagles last played on December 15. Here you had to make do with a 2-2 lead at home against Southampton.
In general, it was enough In the last six league matches for only one win. Here the CPFC beat Everton 3-1 in front of their home crowd. The Eagles will have to dispense with Nathan Ferguson on Sunday.
Whether James MacArthur is able to play will be determined on short notice. On Boxing Day, Crystal Palace does not like to play and was only able to win one of his last six matches that day, with two defeats.
