History of the Crystal Palace v Norwich City fixture

Crystal Palace prepare to entertain Norwich City at Selhurst Park on Monday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Eagles are clearly on top, having won 31 and lost only 11 of the 50 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Selhurst Park was less than a year ago, in February 2006, when they eased past their opponents in a high-scoring 4-1 thriller, in a Championship match.
