Watford vs Crystal Palace Prediction & Betting tips
At Watford they managed to win their first two league games this season. On Sunday Crystal Palace visits Watford and nine points from three games is far from impossible for Watford.
Watford is on track. The Hornets won their first two games and are now leaders in teams such as Manchester City, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur. Of course it’s only two games, but it’s good that Watford won the first two games. With Brighton and Burnley, Watford did not find any opponents better than they, but that does not detract from performance. Especially when you consider that Watford has not really improved this summer.
Brighton was beaten 2-0 and last weekend, Watford was too strong for 1-3 to Burnley. Andre Gray made early on that Watford took the lead against Burnley and not much later it was 1-1 again. Shortly after the rest, however, at Watford they were sharp: Troy Deeney and Will Hughes both scored goal in the six minutes after the break. After the game against Crystal Palace, Watford will have to deal with a difficult program. Next weekend, Tottenham will be the opponent in the Premier League and a week later Manchester United will visit Vicarage Road. The Hornets play three times in a row at home and that can be profitable again.
If Crystal Palace is out of the relegation worries this season, the club has done a great job. For the time being, because Palace is in the left row. Still, a tenth place after two games still says very little, but The Eagles have done quite well in the first two games of this season. The game of Palace is still not to mention spectacular and The Eagles should have it mainly from creative fan Wilfried Zaha, but in the Premier League it is not about how you play football. As long as you take points, everything is fine. At least, that applies to all teams that are not grounded with the Bix Sig of England.
Palace won 0-2 against Fulham in the opening weekend. But on Monday night,Crystal Palace met an opponent of different size with Liverpool. At Selhurst Park Roy Hodgson managed to make every team difficult last season and he wants to continue that trend this season. That was partly successful against Liverpool, because the visitors managed to win by a penalty and a goal in the final phase. Although Crystal Palace only lost 0-2 from Liverpool, it was not that Liverpool’s victory was really in danger, so the Hodgson team can still work on that.
