Our football match prediction:
Crystal Palace will be aiming to put an end to their four-game winless run in the Premier League when they welcome Stoke City at their Selhurst Park. The Eagles are the rock-bottom side ahead of Matchday 13 and a win over Stoke will not help them escape the relegation zone. Wilfried Zaha scored his sixth goal of the season in the 2-2 draw with Everton and all eyes will be on the pacey winger when Crystal Palace face Stoke City in London. The Potters have been having their ups and downs in the Premier League this season, but, no doubt, they would be happy with one point from Saturday’s football match. Crystal Palace want this win more than Stoke City, but given the quality of the away team, we predict that the two sides are going to play out a draw at Selhurst Park this weekend.
