Crystal Palace vs Watford Match Previews

Watford is on the brink of relegation as they are currently 17th in the standings with 27 points, just better on goal difference than 18th-placers AFC Bournemouth and for sure, getting all three points is luxury at this stage of the tournament.

Nigel Pearson’s men are also looking for a back-to-back win after they brought mighty Liverpool back to earth with a stunning 3-0 upset win in their latest league game at Vicarage Road.

The famous win capped the Hornets’ last-five matches in the top flight, a fitting one since they went winless in the four previous games where they lost at Aston Villa 2-1, to visiting Everton 3-2 and at Manchester United 3-0. The other game was a 1-1 draw at Brighton & Hove Albion.

WHAT HODGSON’S MEN WANT

As for Palace, Roy Hodgson’s squad wants to make it three wins in succession, their latest two league triumphs both resulting in 1-0 scores over visiting Newcastle United and at Brighton & Hove Albion, respectively. Those two wins were preceded by three straight losses, 2-0 to visiting Southampton, 1-0 to visiting Sheffield United and 3-1 at Everton.

The Eagles’ last two victories moved them up to 12th place with 36 points after 28 matches and they are within a point off of 10th placers Arsenal who have 37 points.

Striker Jordan Ayew, whose 70th-minute goal lifted Crystal Palace past Brighton & Hove Albion, will remain as Palace’s main man on offence. He has already scored eight goals in the league.

The last league meeting between Watford and Crystal Palace ended in a scoreless draw at Vicarage Road. In their last league collision at Selhurst Park, Watford came from a goal down to beat Crystal Palace 2-1.

Crystal Palace vs Watford Prediction

• After losing 3 straight games, Crystal Palace now found themselves winning back-to-back 1-0 games. The Eagles are now unbeaten in 10 games when they score first.

• Who would’ve thought Watford will be the one who will hand Liverpool their first league defeat of the season. Before that win, the Hornets were winless in their last 6 games, making the win all the more impressive. That win also moved them out of the relegation zone, for now. Of the 14 away league games they played this season, they only won 2. So they need to play the way played against Liverpool to get a good result here.

• Everyone is still high with Watford, and understandably so, but Palace is a very hard team to break at Selhurst Park. Crystal Palace DNB is what I’m picking here.
