It has been a similar story for Leeds as well, who won two of their first three on their return to the top flight but only picked up one win in four games in October.
In contrast, Roy Hodgson’s side have only won one of their three matches at Selhurst Park this season and are 2/1 (3.0) outsiders to beat Leeds for the first time in over nine years.
Both teams have only drawn one of their seven respective league outings so far and a stalemate is available at 12/5 (3.40) with the online bookmaker.
Luka Milivojevic is suspended after being sent off against Wolves last time out, but otherwise Hodgson has a clean bill of health.
Rodrigo is self-isolating after being in close contact with someone who tested positive for coronavirus, whilst Raphinha, Kalvin Phillips, Diego Llorente and Adam Forshaw are all injured.
Leeds’ impressive start to the season has been well-documented and whilst they were brought back down to Earth with a 4-1 defeat at Elland Road by Leicester, that should not deter them as the Whites still carved out plenty of chances to score.
With 13 strikes to their name this season, Marcelo Bielsa’s side will feel confident of breaching a Palace side with just one clean sheet to their name this season – which came all the way back on the opening day.
As well, only two teams have tallied more shots on target than Leeds’ 41 and it could be another fruitful outing for the West Yorkshire side considering they have scored in six of their seven matches so far.
Leeds have won over plenty of doubters already after their exciting start to the season and the 11/8 (2.38) quote from bet365 on Bielsa's men to score over 1.5 goals offers the best bet for punters ahead of this Premier League clash on Friday.
