All David Moyes’ win this campaign have all come in the League Cup, they have been on the receiving end in the Premier League. In the Premier League, they are on a winless streak with just a draw. They were unlucky last weekend as Harry Kane’s goal was enough to condemn Moyes’ men to defeat. However, they were lucky in the League Cup, they came from a goal down to win their opponents away 1-2. They now desperately need a league win to stand a chance of leaving the drop zone.
The Eagles continued their good run of form last weekend as they defeated Stoke City 4-1 to keep their unbeaten form. Unfortunately for Crystal Palace, they were booted out of the League Cup on Wednesday, as they succumbed 2-0 to Southampton. Goals from C. Austin and J. Hesketh were enough to give Saints the win and throw Eagles out of the Competition. They will hope to this game to maintain their good form in the league.
