Loads of Crystal Palace fans have been reacting to a terrible statistic regarding how many goals they have scored at home in the Premier League this season.
As highlighted by @HLTCO, Roy Hodgson’s side have only found the back of the net on 10 occasions at Selhurst Park. According to WhoScored, that is the lowest tally recorded. Watford are the next worst outfit, scoring just 11 goals at Vicarage Road.
Indeed, Palace’s forwards have struggled this term, with only Jordan Ayew really covering himself in glory. The 28-year-old has managed to score six goals thus far, three more than the next highest scorer, Wilfried Zaha. Meanwhile, Christian Benteke has yet to register at all.
With the January transfer window open, Hodgson has been able to add Cenk Tosun to his squad, with the Turkey international managing to find the back of the net recently against Manchester City. But looking at that miserable statistic, the Eagles could surely do with more attacking reinforcements.
You can have a look at what Palace supporters have been saying about the team’s goal record at home below…
A creative attacking midfielder would help, maybe someone like Victor Cama…. oh.

I’m actually struggling to think of more than about 4 of them

You have to be able to pass, move and then shoot to score, all things we really struggle to do! Basics.

Does not look like it’s going to get any better

A great forward scores goals, no matter what formation/set up, not just ayew but all of them only score once every 5, 6 games, being polite it’s poor, benteke’s strike rate in particular is embarrassing to all.
