Nottingham Forest

1 - 0

Crystal Palace

Morgan Gibbs-White 54

Strong defensive display gives Forest the win.

After being locked in at 0-0 for the first 45 minutes, Morgan Gibbs-White netted the first goal of the match for Forest in the 54th minute. This lone goal proved decisive, as Forest held on to beat Palace and take all three points.

The Overview

  • Without seeing a lot of the ball (32% possession), the Tricky Trees managed to muster nine shots.
  • The Eagles didn't generate enough chances, only mustering eight total shots throughout the contest.
  • The Tricky Trees got the job done, but it should've been more comfortable considering their shot accuracy was only 22%.

The Details

Serge Aurier and Morgan Gibbs-White continually probed down the flank, each getting 4 crosses into the box, while Joe Worrall racked up 4 interceptions throughout the game, constantly frustrating the Eagles. The Eagles lost on the day but managed to complete 342 more passes than the Tricky Trees, highlighting their technical strength.

Forest get back in their manager's good books with a win. Meanwhile, Palace get a shock to their system as they taste defeat for the first time in a while.

Preview | November 12

Nottingham Forest-Crystal Palace

Forest and Palace battle it out at the City Ground.

A bouyant Palace, victors in their last two Premier League contests, travel to the City Ground to entertain Forest. The Eagles are jostling for position with Fulham, and a win here might be enough to jump them to 9th in the table. That is far from a certainty for Palace, who were defeated by the Tricky Trees 1-2 in their last league meeting.

Forest | DLWDL | 20th | Top Scorer: T. Awoniyi (3)

Forest are 20th in the table and they'll be targeting all 3 points in this fixture. Scoring goals has been a big problem for Forest and their average xG (expected goals) of 0.9 is the 3rd lowest in the league. With 29 tackles and 25 interceptions, Neco Williams ranks as one of the best in the league defensively. For opportunities at goal, Jesse Lingard stands out. He has been a top distributor this season for them with 4 passes into the box over the year (130th in the EPL).

Palace | WWLWD | 10th | Top Scorer: W. Zaha (6)

Palace come into the match confident. They've emerged victorious in 3 of their last 5. They've overcome a below average scoring attack. Their average xG (expected goals) of 1 is 6th lowest in the league. Eberechi Eze is one of Palace's most creative players. His 29 passes into the box this season puts him 12th in the Premier League. He'll be looking to add to this number in this match. Top aggressor Jeffrey Schlupp will be looking to keep the pressure up after recording 1.8 tackles per match in their last 5.

Forest-Palace Prediction: 0-0

Scoring goals hasn't been these teams' forte, so don't expect plenty of action.

Did you know? Forest conceded their most goals at home in a Premier League match to Man United, when they lost 1-8 in 1999.

Forest are a team on the up, can they continue to make strides? Will Palace get an away win to keep their great run going? You've seen the stats, now check out the odds for this and all the other Premier League matches over at PokerStars Sports.
