Nottingham Forest v Crystal Palace: Pick of the stats

Here are the key facts and figures before Saturday's Premier League fixture between Nottingham Forest and Crystal Palace.

  • Nottingham Forest are unbeaten in their seven Premier League meetings with Crystal Palace. It is the most times they have faced a side without losing and the most times the Eagles have played an opponent without winning in the competition.

  • Palace have won just one of their past 12 league games against Forest - a 1-0 victory at the City Ground in the Championship in December 2011.

  • The Eagles are eithout a win in their past eight league away games, their longest such run since a 10-match streak between May and December 2017.

  • Crystal Palace have conceded more goals in the final five minutes of Premier League games this season than any other side (14), including in their past two matches against Tottenham and Luton Town.

  • Reds striker Chris Wood is one goal away from scoring 10 in the Premier League this season, and he has netted six goals in his past seven games in the competition. It would be the fifth time he has reached double figures since 2017-18 and he would become the seventh player to do so after Mohamed Salah (seven), Son Heung-min (seven), Harry Kane (six), Jamie Vardy (five), Raheem Sterling (five) and Sadio Mane (five).

  • Crystal Palace's Jean-Philippe Mateta has been involved in three goals in his past four league appearances (two goals, one assist), as many as in his previous 18. His five goals this season already equals his most in a campaign in the competition in 2021-22.
