Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Crystal Palace will be aiming to make amends for back-to-back defeats to Man City and West Ham when they take on Wolverhampton in the Premier League round 21. The Eagles have been struggling at the back of late, but they are surely capable of matching the out-of-sorts Wolves at home ground. Crystal Palace will be without Ferguson, Hennessey, Mateta, Sakho, Schlupp, Tomkins, and Wickham, who remain sidelined with injuries.
The Wolves, on the other hand, did well to hold Chelsea to a goalless draw at Stamford Bridge. Since Nuno Espirito Santo’s troops have been struggling in front of goal ever since Raul Jimenez suffered a long-term injury, a low-scoring affair is on the cards in London. Under 2.5 goals have been netted in each of their previous six meetings in all competitions. Both Jonny and Marcal are sidelined with injuries for the Wolves as well.
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.
