Pablo Hernandez threat overlooked with Leeds United fancied for victory at Crystal Palace

LEEDS United are once again marginal market leaders for their latest Premier League assignment at Crystal Palace with Wilfried Zaha and Patrick Bamford joint favourites to score first.

In another close market not too dissimilar to the one for the Leicester City clash, Leeds are market leaders at around the 6-4 mark with 31-20 the best on offer and Palace hovering around the 2-1 area with 83-41 the best in town.

The draw is on offer at 5-2 and the two players seen as United and Palace's main goal threats cannot be split in the first scorer market with United no 9 Bamford and Palace forward Zaha both 6-1 to net first.

Palace trio Michy Batshuayi (13-2), Christian Benteke (7s) and Jordan Ayew (7s) are next in the betting ahead of two United men in Tyler Roberts and Raphinha who are both 17-2.

With Rodrigo absent, it means United playmaker Pablo Hernandez looks a decent price at 10-1 to score first and 7-2 any time with Palace's Andros Townsend also looking quite good odds at 13s.

But goals for both sides are once again expected with both teams to score at 10-13 and, as was the case against Leicester, a 1-1 draw is favourite in the correct score market at 6-1 with a 1-0 triumph at 17-1 and a 1-0 success for the hosts on offer at 10s, the same price as a 2-1 victory for Leeds which might be just about the right shout.
