Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Following a 2-2 draw with Fulham in the London derby, Crystal Palace will look to finish the season with a win when they host Nottingham Forest to their Selhurst Park. The Eagles did well to beat West Ham and Bournemouth in the previous two home games, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of Saturday’s clash. Keep in mind, though, that all Ferguson, Tomkins, Zaha, Schlupp, and Milivojevic should miss out with injuries.
The Reds, on the other hand, managed to secure the Premier League survival thanks to their fine displays in the season finale. Forest, though, are not regarded as good travellers and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Palace’s party in London. All Kouyate, Johnson, and Boly are pushing for a start as Steven Cooper should opt to make changes to the team that defeated Arsenal at the weekend.
Highlighted Player (Eberechi Eze):
Eberechi Eze is a talented football player who was born in Greenwich, England on June 29, 1998. Eze started his youth career at Millwall and in the summer of 2016 he moved to Queens Park Rangers, signing a one-year contract with the capital club.
Eze scored 4 goals in 42 appearances for the Hoops in the 2018/2019 Championship campaign, while providing 4 assists for his teammates.His main position is attacking midfield, but he is capable of playing as both right and left midfielder as well. Eze is a footballer of Nigerian descent, but he has yet to make his debut for the Super Eagles in international matches.
Given his place of birth, the 173-cm tall midfielder was eligible to play for the England U20 team and he made his debut for the Three Lions on October 11, 2018 in a 2-1 victory over Italy. His preferred foot is right.
Highlighted Team (Nottingham Forest):
Nottingham Forest, the club that are often referred to as Forest, were formed in 1865. They have been playing their home games at the City Ground since 1898 and the capacity of the stadium is 30,445. Nottingham Forest are regarded as one of the greatest English clubs as they won the European Cup on two occasions. In 1979 Forest outplayed Malmo (1-0) at the Olympiastadion in Munich in the final of the elite competition, with the team beating Hamburg in 1980 in the title game at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu (1-0).
Nottingham Forest won the national championship in the 1977/1978 season, with the team finishing the campaign seven points clear of second-placed Liverpool. To make things even better for the fans, the City Ground outfit clinched the FA Cup trophies in 1898 and 1959. Derby County are regarded as Forest’s bitterest rivals and the two local rivals contest in the East Midlands derby. In their first ever meeting in the local derby Forest recorded a 3-2 win over Derby County.
