Crystal Palace are the first top-flight team in 93 years to lose their opening four games without scoring a goal

Palace have now gone 450 minutes, and almost four months, without a top-flight goal. It is also 93 years since a top-flight side last failed to score and lost their opening four games – Preston North End in 1924-25.
