Crystal Palace and Leeds United shared points as both teams played an entertaining 0-0 draw at Selhurst Park. 

Both teams went into the break goalless as both teams didn’t create many chances in the first half. However, it was Crystal Palace who had the better chances in the first half. 

Mateta was played a through ball, but his chipped effort went over Leeds United’s goalkeeper Meslier. Moreover, the headers of Mateta and Zaha were also saved by the keeper.

However, in the second half, Gallagher had a chance, but his effort from outside the box was just wide of the top corner. Moreover, Meslier pulled off a brilliant double save to deny Crystal Palace attacker Zaha at the near post.
