When Will Palace Score? When Will They Pick Up A Point?

The arrival of Roy Hodgson at Crystal Palace did little to arrest the club’s poor start to the season and William Hill have opened a book not just on when they win pick up their first point but also on when they will score given that they now hold the dubious record of most Premier League minutes without scoring.


Palace are 40/1 to not score in any pf their next five games in the Premier League and 10/1 to fail to bag a point in the same time frame. They are, however, 7/2 to pick up a point against Manchester City in their next match and 11/10 to score in that game.


“Hodgson has a big task on his hands and with the tricky run of fixtures in the coming weeks, it is feasible that they could be pointless and goalless at the end of September and beyond,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.


When will Crystal Palace score their first goal in this Premier League season: 11/10 Manchester City; 9/4 Manchester United; 4/1 Chelsea; 8/1 Newcastle; 16/1 West Ham; 40/1 none of these games


When will Crystal Palace pick up their first point on the season: 7/2 Manchester City; 4/1 Manchester United; 9/2 Chelsea; 9/2 Newcastle; 5/1 West Ham; 10/1 none of these games
