Leeds battled for a 0-0 draw at Crystal Palace on Monday Night Football which leaves them five points clear of the drop zone.

Seventeenth-placed Burnley’s 1-0 win over Wolves on Sunday piled the pressure on Leeds ahead of their trip to Selhurst Park and they failed to provide an answer, with just three points separating the sides ahead of the final five games of the season.

Team news

  • Kalvin Phillips made his first start for Leeds since December
  • Tyrick Mitchell was unavailable for Crystal Palace due to injury

It was a game of few chances, but Palace were dominant and will feel disappointed they failed to secure a win that would have taken them to 40 points and put to bed any remaining concerns of relegation.

While Leeds will be pleased to have come away with a point after a bad night away from home, it leaves them in a precarious position ahead of a tough run-in which includes matches against Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal.

Eighteenth-placed Everton have a game in hand on Leeds and Burnley, which if they win could see Frank Lampard’s side close the gap to two points between themselves and the Whites.
