Crystal Palace vs Nottingham Forest Bet-Builder tip
Edouard and Awoniyi have seven combined Premier League goals so far this season, but it’ll likely be the Palace man to score first given his team’s habit of opening the scoring. Nottingham Forest has received 22 yellow cards so far this season and has already seen their first red. By contrast, Palace have picked up just 11 bookings.

|–||Danilo, Nuno Tavares, Felipe, Wayne Hennessey, Moussa Niakhate||Nicolas Dominguez, Olaoluwa Aina, Ryan Yates|
Danilo, Nuno Tavares, Felipe and Wayne Hennessey are ruled out while Moussa Niakhate is suspended. Nicolas Dominguez, Olaoluwa Aina and Ryan Yates are doubtful.
Steve Cooper may be tempted to keep young defender Murillo in the side after his excellent debut against Brentford last time out. Playing for the first time in English football, the Brazilian fit seamlessly into the heart of the Forest backline — which came under immense pressure after Moussa Niakhate’s second-half red card — making 11 clearances, nine recoveries, one goal-line clearance, one interception and one block.
“He’s a young player. Part of our work is to give young players opportunities. We gave him an opportunity at the weekend, I thought he took it,” Cooper said of the 21-year-old. “We really like him and think he’s a talent. But he’s only played one game. We’ve got to work with him and see where it goes.
“For sure, he has high potential. Given opportunities, we hope he takes them. If he does, then let’s see how well he does.
“He did well on his debut and did some things which caught the eye. He’s been like that in training, there’s no doubt about that, but he’s got to turn that into consistent performances for us. If he does that, we’ll all benefit.”
