Crystal Palace vs Norwich
England – Premier League
Date: Tuesday, 28 December 2021
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Selhurst Park.

After suffering defeat at the hands of North London clubs, 48 hours later Crystal Palace and Norwich will meet at Selhurst Park in a league fixture.

The Eagles after losing out unfortunately in narrow score lines at the start of December managed to pick up a few points later on. 

In their most recent game, the club lost 3-0 to Tottenham away from home. The visitors were outclassed in the fixture as they failed to get a shot on target in the fixture. 

Furthermore, the sending off of their star player Wilfried Zaha in the 37th minute not just made things easier for Spurs but Norwich defenders would be relieved as he is suspended for the fixture.

Thus losing three of their last five matches, the club has added four points through a win and a draw. Following which the club is 12th in the league.

The Canaries on matchday 18 were annihilated by Arsenal at home by a score line of 0-5. This marked their third consecutive loss in home fixtures. Following the result, the club will head into Selhurst Park winless in six league fixtures. 

With just a point coming from December through five fixtures, the club is bottom of the table, three points behind 17th place Watford.

The club is further weakened by injuries to A. Omobamidele, G. Hanley, M. Normann, C. Zimmermann and M. Rashica who will miss the fixture on Tuesday.

Crystal Palace vs Norwich Prediction

The Glaziers have had better months than December this season. However, the club has been defeated just once at home in this campaign. Consequently, they should seal the result with ease against a club on a 4 match losing streak.

The visitors have struggled to score throughout the season. Having scored just eight goals this season, they have failed to find the back of the net in four consecutive fixtures now. 

Additionally, the hosts have displayed solid defensive performances this season at home, conceding just once on average per game. Considering these stats, Crystal Palace is likely to register a clean sheet.
