Crystal Palace were deprived of the spoils last weekend by a last-gasp Connor Gallagher strike. Despite taking the lead against Chelsea, the Eagles ultimately returned from their trip to Stamford Bridge emptyhanded as the hosts came back from behind to nick a 2-1 win. But Palace boss Patrick Vieira will be hoping to take inspiration from their incredible performance against the Blues and put on a streak of good results with a kinder run of Premier League fixtures on the horizon. Up next, they welcome Leeds United to Selhurst Park on Sunday afternoon.
There’s optimism aplenty at Selhurst Park with Crystal Palace hoping a busy summer’s recruitment can help them build on last season’s 12th place finish in the Premier League (PL). There’s a literal building job also on the horizon with the club committed to redeveloping their ground, and fans are eager to see if manager Patrick Vieira can guide them to a first top-half finish since 2014/15. The match is scheduled to kick off at 8pm UK time. Follow the live scores and stats on Flashscore.
