Crystal Palace – Leeds: An intriguing clash takes place at Selhurst Park on Saturday (Watch live, 10am ET on NBCSN and online via NBCSports.com)
Roy Hodgson saw his Palace side lose 2-0 last time out and although they have picked up 10 points so far this season, they haven’t exactly set the world alight.
Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds have also picked up 10 points and they’ve played really well in spells, but have come unstuck after defensive errors. Leeds will have to tighten that up, especially against Wilfried Zaha and Palace.

Crystal Palace – Leeds prediction
The Eagles are tough to break down and I think they will enjoy sitting back and defending deep against Leeds. If Wilfried Zaha is on form they have a chance, and I think they will get the job done here as Leeds are missing a few key players with Kalvin Phillips and Rodrigo out. Zaha, like Vardy, will get a lot of joy on the counter. Crystal Palace 2-1 Leeds.
