Two sides that are locked in the bottom half of the Premier League standings clash on Tuesday evening, as Wolves travel to Selhurst Park to take on Crystal Palace. The away side will be looking for a second straight victory, while Palace will be looking for a second win in their previous six fixtures.
Premier League Preview
Wins have been very hard to come by for both Crystal Palace and Wolves this season, but both will be looking to get back on track and avoid any danger of getting dragged into a relegation scrap. Wolves come into this fixture in slightly better form, as they picked up just a second league victory of the season in their previous fixture.
That was a much-needed success for the Midlands side following the departure of Bruno Lage, and it was enough to lift them out of the relegation places in the league standings. Furthermore, the win ended a run of three straight defeats. However, it was far from an easy task for Wolves, as they scored the only goal of the game against Nottingham Forest from the penalty spot, with Ruben Neves netting the winner.
Crystal Palace could move into the top half of the standings with a home victory on Tuesday, but Patrick Vieira’s side has picked up just two wins from their nine games this term. The Eagles have been the draw specialists in the league, as they have recorded a joint-high of four ties so far this term.
Their third draw in five league fixtures was played out over the weekend, as there was nothing to separate Palace and Leicester City. Palace looked happy to take the point from the fixture, as they managed just one shot on target against the Foxes.
Crystal Palace vs Wolves Head to Head
Palace has a fine recent record in this fixture, as they have picked up three straight league victories against Wolves. The visiting side this week has also lost on their previous two trips to Selhurst Park, which was as many defeats as they had suffered in their previous eleven.
Crystal Palace vs Wolves Prediction
This is likely to be a low-scoring fixture between two sides that struggle in the final third. However, the fact that Wolves have won just once in their previous 12 games on the road in the Premier League makes them very difficult to support on Tuesday. Therefore, we expect Palace to claim the points.
