‘Canaries can bag all three points’ – Teemu Pukki to fire Norwich to away win at Palace

Published

on

The job Roy Hodgson has done at Crystal Palace, to make them a fairly secure Premier League side, seems to be massively underestimated. They host Norwich in a game that both sides will most probably be looking to take all three points from.

Whilst that might be viewed that a draw (13/5) as the most likely result, Palace’s reliance on home form to get them up the table cannot be underestimated.

The past omens look good for the Eagles. Palace completed the double over them in the 2015/16 season, the last time they faced each other, and the Canaries haven’t won at Selhurst Park since 1996.

Palace are huge 19/20 favourites to win this one, having also got unbeaten in their last five home league fixtures.

Wilfried Zaha, the enigmatic winger who pushed for a move to Arsenal and Everton this Summer, is yet to score this season. Palace are the joint-lowest scorers this season with four, but the Ivorian is 15/8 to break his duck and score anytime.

Norwich meanwhile have actually scored twelve goals in the opening half an hour of Premier League matches this season. It’s 15/8 for Norwich to score over one goal in the first half.

Finnish striker Teemu Pukki has taken to the Premier League better than anyone thought he ever would.

He has six league goals, that’s a goal every eighty-nine minutes, and he’s 8/5 to score anytime.

Daniel Farke’s side have lost all their away league matches so far. They conceded seven corners in last weekend’s 2-0 defeat at Burnley and it is 11/2 for them to concede that exact same figure again.

Though all signs point to a Palace win, as they look for a top-half finish this season, it is games like these, against mid-table sides, that the ambitious and plucky Norwich will attempt to pick-up scalps in their quest for another year of Premier League football.
