Premier League Preview for Hull City v Crystal Palace along with Predictions for every result in the EPL. Follow up each match with results and video highlights posted later in the week.
Another meeting of newly promoted sides brings Crystal Palace visiting Hull City as both teams are in a bit of a transition phase of sorts. Hull City has the ongoing issues surrounding the re-naming of the club while Crystal Palace is still manager-less after parting ways with Ian Holloway.
Both teams have had contrasting starts to the season. Hull started rather brightly before hitting a recent patch of losses. They are in 12th place with a 4-2-5 record and 14 points. Crystal Palace is at the bottom of the table with four points and a 1-1-9 record. Neither team has been lighting up the score boards. Hull City has scored nine while Crystal Palace has only managed to score a league low six. Palace has also allowed 21 goals while Hull has allowed 14.
At home Hull City has been rather impressive going undefeated in their last five home EPL matches and keeping clean sheets in the past three. My prediction is for a Hull City win and another clean sheet. Crystal Palace has been woeful in front of goal including failing to score in six out of their last eight Premier League matches and having lost their last five.
Betting Odds: Hull win: 1.82-1.85; Draw: 3.45-3.51; Crystal Palace win: 4.61-5.15
Form: Hull (W, D, L, L, W, L) Crystal Palace (L, L, L, L, L, D)
