This season, the two London rivals had nearly equal records.

Selhurst stalemate as Palace and Fulham make their point

In a scoreless draw at Selhurst Park, Crystal Palace and Fulham each earned one point from the game.

Following his absence due to illness from Villa’s defeat to Aston last weekend, Eagles manager Roy Hodgson was back in the dugout.

Eberechi Eze had a shot that went just wide late in the first half of the finely balanced game, but the visitors were unable to take advantage of their best opportunity after the break.

With Palace just leading on goal differential, the outcome assures that the London rivals will continue to have nearly identical Premier League records for another week.

Andreas Pereira’s initial shot from the left corner of the penalty box was well parried away by Sam Johnstone, who then dove to stop Willian as the first session approached the ten-minute mark.
