When Crystal Palace hosts Nottingham Forest at the City Ground on Saturday, October 8th, it hopes to build on a spectacular away victory. Palace moved past Manchester United and into 9th position in the Premier League standings after defeating the Red Devils 1-0 at Old Trafford the previous time. Forest comes into this game with just one loss in 4 games, and it was against Manchester City.
Cristal Palace is having trouble replacing Wilfried Zaha, who left for warmer climes in Turkey at Galatasaray, and is failing to score more goals consistently. Palace are currently ranked ninth in the table with an overall mark of 3 wins, 2 draws, and 2 losses. Roy Hodgson yet again showcased his expertise last time out by stealing three points at Old Trafford in a close 1-0 victory over Manchester United. The fact that the experienced coach and his team have only scored two times in the previous four matches in front of their opposition’s goalkeeper appears to be a cause for concern.
The host team has no recent injury issues, but Eberechi Eze must hurry to recover in time for the game.
Forest is three points below Brentford, but they might learn a lot about themselves from the 1-1 home tie with Brentford the previous week, where they were down a man and a goal when Moussa Niakhate got sent off but still managed to get a point. Their 1-0 victory at Chelsea has been the high point of their campaign thus far, but additionally, they came close to winning at Old Trafford in which they scored twice in the opening 4 minutes before losing 3-2.
While the Reds hope to snap their three-game losing streak in the English Premier League, defeating Palace in the capital is a much harder task. Moussa Niakhate, a defender, is suspended, and Wayne Hennessey and Danilo are both injured and unable to play.
