Wolves – Crystal Palace Predictions and Preview

  • Just three points separated Wolves and Crystal Palace in the bottom half of the Premier League table (PL) coming into this contest, and both have little more to play for than to confirm their place in next season’s competition. Although that is something to celebrate in both camps after each of the two sides were firmly embroiled in the relegation dogfight not long ago. Wolves’ form at home, which has seen them win three of their last four matches at Molineux (L1), has helped them establish a six-point buffer on the bottom three with only six rounds remaining.
  • However, manager Julen Lopetegui considered Saturday’s 2-1 away defeat to Leicester City an opportunity to refocus, stating post-match that “the most dangerous thought” is his side believing survival is already assured. Another three points would all but mathematically secure their PL football for another season, but collecting them immediately isn’t assured if H2H history – in which Palace have won the four most recent meetings – is to be considered.
  • That’s coincidentally Palace’s longest ever winning run against Wolves, and their form of late should give them the belief to extend it further even after being forced to settle for a 0-0 draw at home to a determined Everton side on Saturday. That result extended their unbeaten league run to four matches (W3, D1) under Roy Hodgson, their longest undefeated streak of this league campaign.
  • While fluid attacking displays were the standout trait from the first couple of games with Hodgson back in charge, clean sheets in Palace’s last two matches highlights that he has also helped instil defensive robustness in the group. Another shutout here would not only hand the Eagles a third in the league successively for the first time this season, but also a fourth from their last five competitive meetings with Wolves.
  • Players to watch: Wolves’ Rúben Neves returned from a two-match suspension against Leicester City after picking up ten yellow cards; only two PL players had received more coming into the round. He’d be wise to be careful around Palace’s Jordan Ayew who has drawn 69 fouls so far this season. Only teammate Wilfried Zaha had been fouled more often.
  • Hot streak: Wolves have won ‘to nil’ in each of their last nine competitive home games in which they scored the opening goal.
