It’s been a rollercoaster start to life back in the Premier League for Leeds, who have put in some stellar performances and have picked up some good results along the way.
However, consistency is something of an issue at the moment having suffered a heavy 4-1 defeat when hosting Leicester on Monday night and there’s question marks as to which Whites side will turn up to Selhurst Park this weekend.
There’s a common theme for Crystal Palace under Roy Hodgson in that aside from matches against the ‘Big Six’ there’s rarely a goal fest, and this season has been no different. Five of their seven matches this season have seen three goals or fewer, with the two exceptions coming against Man United and Chelsea.
Under 2.5 Goals
Leeds have seen the same outcome in four of their last five fixtures after an explosive start to the campaign which saw 14 goals across their first two outings.
What’s more, the Eagles have seen ‘Under 2.5 Goals’ land in 15 of 18 matches against promoted opposition under Hodgson, and with goals per game averages coming down right across the league that certainly looks like an option worth getting behind.
Leeds haven’t been on top of their game at Elland Road this season, losing their last tow matches there while their only victory came narrowly in a very open match with Fulham.
However, on the road it’s been a different story, winning two of their three games while the exception came as they fell to a late penalty at Anfield.
Patrick Bamford was unplayable at Villa park in the last away day against what was an unbeaten Aston Villa side, and following a home defeat we’d expect Marcelo Bielsa to have come down hard on his side in training this week.
Multibet Leeds win 1-0, 2-0 Or 2-1
A player of Kalvin Phillips’ quality is always going to be a miss and his absence was clearly felt at Elland Road on Monday, though Bielsa is more than capable of adapting and has shown that in the past.
Indeed, the Whites have a 55% win record in the 42 matches the Englishman has started since the beginning of last season, though that actually rises to 73% in the 11 that he hasn’t, which includes six wins from the past seven and that’s enough for us to get behind the visitors to bounce back against what tends to be quite a predictable Palace side.
Though Leeds have shown they are capable of big scorelines, the hosts have also showed their not an easy side to break down and the multibet looks to hold value for us when getting the Yorkshire team onside.
