Watford vs Crystal Palace – Prediction (Premier League – 07.12.2019)




Preview and Teams Comparison.

Managerless Watford began life post-Quique Sánchez Flores with a 2-0 away loss to in-form Leicester in the Premier League (PL). This made it three straight defeats for the ‘Hornets’, who have been outscored 7-1 in this mini-run. They remain bottom of the table and have additionally scored the fewest goals. Returning to Vicarage Road may not serve much hope for Watford, considering that they haven’t won a home league match since April (D4, L7). The ‘Hornets’ have only earned four PL home cleansheets in 2019, but they’ve at least been drawing at half-time in four of their seven at home this season (57.14%).

Crystal Palace recently secured back-to-back PL wins, but they had to do it the hard way when beating Bournemouth 1-0, having been down to ten-men since the 19th minute. It means that four of their last five league wins have impressively come with a cleansheet. Roy Hodgson’s men have won ten of their previous 17 away league matches, earning a win rate of 58.82%. Interestingly, the last ten away league clashes to see them score have yielded a positive result (W8, D2). However, they earned just two cleansheets in that period.

Players to watch: Watford will be glad to have talisman striker Troy Deeney back to fitness, considering that he has scored 21 of his 37 PL goals in home matches (56.76%). Crystal Palace wideman Jeffrey Schlupp has now scored in consecutive games, with both goals arriving after the 75th minute mark.

Stat attack: Watford have won the last three H2Hs by a 2-1 scoreline. Watford haven’t conceded a first-half goal in any of their last four games. Crystal Palace are yet to score an away goal this season inside the opening 30 minutes.
