From European hopefuls to relegation candidates, this is how Crystal Palace has transformed in the space of three months. Currently 16th in the league table, 3 points away from their Saturday’s opponents who are on 17th place. Crystal Palace’s free fall have put them in a real danger of going down this season as they are the worst side in the league along with Aston Villa in the calendar year 2016.

Norwich City have taken themselves out of the hole with back-to-back wins, but their job is far from finished. They may need another 9 points to ensure safety and with the matches against the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United to follow, they must target to take maximum points from oppositions like Crystal Palace.

Form Comparison

Crystal Palace are without a win in 14 Premier League matches. They are yet to taste victory in the league this year, with the last win coming against Stoke City on 19th February 2015.
Palace have lost their last 6 home games and are without a win in the last 7. Five out of their last 6 home matches have seen over 2.5 goals and conceded 2 or more goals in each of them.

Kwesi Appiah, James McArthur and Marouane Chamakh are sidelined through their respective injuries, while both Connor Wickham and Yohan Cabaye have fit enough to make the start.

Emmanuel Adebayor is a doubt and Dwight Gayle is a very likely candidate to lead the attack after scoring a goal in the last match against West Ham.

Crystal Palace vs Norwich: Preview and Prediction

Crystal Palace have won failed to win 14 matches in a row and are approaching the relegation zone. Norwich City on the other hand are starting to turn the tables and will be eyeing another win to take them clear-off the danger zone.
