Crystal Palace vs Sheffield United Betting Tips: X2 (Double chance)

Concluding 2023 on a triumphant note, comfortably seeing off Brentford 3-1 in gameweek 20 of the English top-tier, Crystal Palace swiftly reverted to factory settings, missing out on the taste of celebration in 2024 as they were knocked out of the FA Cup by Everton with an overall loss of 0-1.

A mere three days after being sent packing by the Toffees from the oldest national football competition, the Eagles suffered humiliation at the Emirates Stadium, conceding a "firecracker" from Arsenal, leaving the triumph against the Bees as the only bright spot in that gray stretch of results spanning 12 competitive matches.

While Crystal Palace is not currently in danger of relegation, sitting five points above the bottom three, Selhurst Park faithful have reasons for concern, as their beloved club has delivered only two celebratory performances this term in the opening 10 matches, making them one of the weakest home teams.

To compound the issues, Roy Hodgson's chosen ones have clearly lost their edge in the final third, with no entries in the scoresheet in any of the initial three affairs in the new calendar year, while the defensive battles show no signs of subsiding, allowing two or more goals in seven cases out of the last 10 EPL contests.

Just like their Tuesday hosts, Sheffield go into this one off the back of an FA Cup failure as, despite canceling out Brighton's two-goal lead in the drowning moments of the first half, they ultimately succumbed to a disheartening 2-5 defeat, turning Ivo Grbic's goalkeeping debut into nothing short of a nightmare.

Returning to domestic duties, the South Yorkshire side made a respectable impression in their sole January Premier League outing, managing to salvage a point against European hopefuls West Ham in a lively 2-2 draw, all thanks to Oli McBurnie's successfully converted penalty in deep stoppage time.

While it was a mountain point, the Blades' winless streak extended to five league matches since they edged past Brentford with a narrow 1-0 victory in early December, while the situation away from home looks extremely alarming as they are yet to savor the sweetness of victory on top-flight grounds, picking up only two out of the possible 30 points until now.

Anchored at the bottom of the table with seven points adrift from safety, Sheffield boss Chris Wilder will need to urgently find a solution to lift his side from trouble, and the achieved draws against the Hammers and Aston Villa in recent league outings should give them optimistic hopes to grab at least a point against the frustrating Palace.

Crystal Palace team news

Faced with disappointing outcomes, Roy Hodgson, the head coach, is tackling significant player absences on Tuesday, while the potential comeback of Jordan Ayew, who netted two crucial goals in the 2-2 draw against Mozambique on the final group stage day, looms after his Ghana team exited the African Cup of Nations early.

The 76-year-old's major concern revolves around being without the talented winger Michael Olise, who hasn't logged any minutes in the new calendar year due to a hamstring injury, while the pivotal midfielder Cheick Doucoure won't be playing for the rest of the season due to an Achilles tendon rupture.

Meanwhile, Sheffield is grappling with several absences as they make a visit to Selhurst Park, with the likes of John Egan, Chris Basham, Tom Davies, and Daniel Jebbison sidelined due to injuries, while the status of Yasser Larouci and Anis Slimane remains uncertain after their national teams concluded their AFCON journey in the group stage.

Rhian Brewster received a straight red card in a thrilling 2-2 draw with West Ham in their last Premier League outing, meaning the 23-year-old striker's three-match ban starts from Tuesday's visit to Crystal Palace, while new arrival Ben Brereton Diaz will keep his place in the attack.
