Watford vs Crystal Palace
Sunday, 26th August
Watford are on top form, two wins in two and all those calling for the head of Jarvi Gracia a while ago are aligned behind the Spaniard.
Watford beat Burnley at Turf Moor, that’s a huge result considering how difficult it is to face Sean Dyche’s men away from home, it gave them some fresh air as they aspire for something better than relegation scraps this term.
Crystal Palace gave their all against Liverpool, very unlucky to concede at the tail end of each half, one to a penalty that left lots of questions for the thinking faculty of Sakho and another breakaway goal at the tail end of the second half, not long after they were reduced to ten men following Wan Bissaka’s professional foul on Mo Salah.
Both sides are entertaining to watch, the statistics of recent games hugely favour the Eagles, Roy Hodgson’s men are unbeaten in five against Watford, they are in strong positions to soar and banish the loss at home to Liverpool as a fluke.
Wilfried Zaha is the man for Crystal Palace, starting Benteke does more harm to the team than they think, he seems to be out of touch with skills and discretion, Sorloth will do better as seen in his cameo against Liverpool.
Abdoulaye Doucoure and Hughes are the men for Watford, if they are allowed to roam as they want, they will clip the wings of the Eagles at the Vicarage Road Stadium.
Verdict: Both teams to score
