Tip Reasoning

  • Crystal Palace have only kept three clean sheets in 11 competitive games this season.
  • Both teams have scored in each of Wolves’ last four matches.
  • Crystal Palace have drawn four of their last five Premier League matches.

Eagles come to life under Vieira

Crystal Palace picked up a sensational three points away to Manchester City last weekend, extending their unbeaten run to five games in the Premier League and consigning that opening weekend thrashing at Chelsea to a distant memory.

Patrick Vieira has done an excellent job so far, losing just two Premier League games all season and taking points off the likes of Spurs, Leicester, Arsenal and Manchester City. However, they’re coming up against another in-form side on Saturday.

Winning streak continues for Wolves

Wolves made it four wins from their last five games as they beat a struggling Everton last weekend, pushing them up to seventh in the table.

They were unfortunate to lose their first three league games under Bruno Lage but the Midlands club have certainly made up for that slow start since.

Expect goals at Selhurst Park

In a strange turn of events that would have seemed an impossibility last season, this fixture has all the makings of an entertaining one and we could be in for a fair few goals.

Crystal Palace have improved dramatically under Patrick Vieira when it comes to attacking output but they have kept just three clean sheets in 11 games and both teams have scored in four of their last five.

Wolves have seen goals at both ends in five of their last six competitive games and a total of 18 goals have been scored in that time, so I’m backing both teams to score here.

Wolves to target Palace’s set-piece vulnerability

In the end I am expecting a close contest between two improving sides. Crystal Palace have been incredibly difficult to beat but they have drawn six of their ten league games, including four of their last five. Three of these draws have been 2-2 scorelines, so that’s my choice for a correct score prediction.

Those in the hunt for a big-priced goalscorer could be in luck at Selhurst Park. Last weekend I tipped Romain Saiss to score and, while he didn’t manage to find the net, Max Kilman did open the scoring to reinforce the logic behind the bet.

Kilman’s goal was Wolves’ sixth set-piece goal in all competitions this season and Crystal Palace are even worse at defending set-plays than Everton. The Eagles have conceded more goals from set-pieces (7) than any other side in the Premier League this season so I’m sticking with Saiss to add to his two-goal tally this season.

Crystal Palace predicted lineup: Guaita; Ward, Andersen, Guehi, Mitchell; Milivojevic, Gallagher, McArthur; Olise, Zaha, Benteke

Wolves predicted lineup: Sa; Kilman, Coady, Saiss; Semedo, Neves, Moutinho, Ait-Nouri; Trincao, Hee-Chan, Jimenez

  • Crystal Palace are unbeaten in their last five Premier League home games
  • Four of Crystal Palace’s last five Premier League games and each of Wolves’ last four have seen both teams score
