Vavel's prediction

Courtesy of VAVEL UK's Jonny Bentley: 

Crystal Palace are incredibly effective when they hold a lead. Contrastingly, they are not set up to turn games around when they fall behind. Just like Newcastle, Burnley and, to an extent, Wolverhampton Wanderers, they build with a defence-first strategy and build from that. 

Leeds United are the opposite. They attack at all times, playing a high risk style of football. Nonetheless, they yield results playing in this way, simultaneously winning the hearts of many neutral supporters. 

Both teams suffered defeats last week; Leeds were annihilated by a the counter attacks of Leicester City. Technically, Leeds should find it tough against Palace but Marcelo Bielsa will demand an improved display from his men; he will probably get it. 

Prediction: 1-1

Roy Hodgson: Pre-match comments

"Marcelo is a man who has had a lot of success since coming to Leeds. He was clearly an inspired appointment. I've never met him, unfortunately, but I look forward to meeting him tomorrow." 

"I think Leeds, for a team that get a lot of players forward, are able to get them back very quickly as well. That is their style and you've got to be good enough to deal with it."

"We are fortunate to have four forwards - if you include Wilf as a forward also - who all bring different qualities to the team. They can all work well together, as well."

Both sides looking to bounce back

Marcelo Bielsa comes into his 100th game in charge of Leeds United off the back of a 4-1 demolition at the hands of Leicester City. 

As for Roy Hodgson, his Crystal Palace side have been quietly going about their business. Although the Eagles struggled last time out against Wolves, considering the resources at Hodgson's disposal, Palace's league position is not one for concern, yet.
