Crystal Palace prepare to entertain Norwich City at Selhurst Park at lunchtime on Friday, looking to continue an impressive record. The Eagles are clearly on top, having won 33 and lost only 11 of the 53 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Selhurst Park was less than a year ago, in January 2008, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1-1 final scoreline in a Championship match.
