Ones to watch
 

Conor Gallagher (Crystal Palace)

The midfielder was ineligible to play against parent club Newcastle, but he'll be in the squad here and is a key man to neutralize Leeds' potent midfield.

Rodrigo (Leeds United)

He's been one of the many players revitalized under new manager Jesse Marsch, scoring in three of his last four games. How he plays against Odsunne Edouard in midfield and the ability for his teammates to continue to get him touches will be crucial.

Previous meetings

In this fixture last season, Crystal Palace ran riot over Leeds, scoring a convincing 4-1 victory.

Scott Dann opened the scoring in the 12th minute as his header from Eberechi Eze's corner squeezed past the fingertips of Ilian Meslier.

Eze then won a free-kick that he took himself and his powerful and precise shot over the Whites' wall doubled the Eagles advantage on 22 minutes.

Patrick Bamford sliced the lead in half five minutes later as he chested down Matuesz Klich's header and fired into the bottom corner.

A bit of good fortune gave restored Palace's two-goal lead as Helder Costa attempted to block Patrick van Aanholt's cross from the left and turned the ball into his own net.

Jordan Ayew made sure the points were in safe when, in the 70th minute, he slotted home from a Wilfred Zaha pass.
