It is now 7 games into the season and Crystal Palace have the unwanted record of having no points and no goals to there name. New manager Roy Hodgson has yet to have had any effect on the clubs fortunes and with Chelsea up next things don’t look like getting any better.
In the history of English football only Halifax town have gone on a longer run without scoring from the start of the season. Palace are also the only team in all 5 of the top European leagues yet to score a goal.
While the stats make bad reading the league table could be a lot worse with only 5 points between them and safety. A turnaround in the next few weeks could yet see Palace dig themselves out of this hole.
Palace conceded 4 goals against Manchester United on Saturday to take their goal difference to -17 goals.
Meanwhile Manchester United completed their unbeaten start to the season and Lukaku scored for the seventh game in a row to equal Andy goals record of scoring in his first seven Manchester United games.
Bookies are now offering odds on Manchester United to go unbeaten all season. You can get 33/1 for United to go unbeaten this season with Ladbrokes.
