Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Crystal Palace odds and betting statistics



Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Crystal Palace match preview

Will either of these two teams edge closer to safety?

It’s been a fantastic month for Crystal Palace, winning three on the spin following Roy Hodgson’s reappointment, beating Leicester, Leeds and Southampton, scoring nine goals.

Then, on Saturday, the Eagles played out an incredibly dull 0-0 draw with Everton, in which basically nothing happened.

Nevertheless, that point cements Palace’s place in 12th, knowing a victory here would see them leapfrog Chelsea, even if only for 24 hours.

Wolverhampton Wanderers meanwhile are two places and three points below their visitors and a victory in this one would represent a gigantic step towards survival.

Julen Lopetegui’s team have won back-to-back home games, these against Chelsea and Brentford, before Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at Leicester.

Now though, if Wolves make it three successive Premier League home wins for the first time since November 2021, they’ll be on the cusp of safety.

Palace have actually won their last four meetings with Wolves, the longest winning streak either team has enjoyed over the other.

Will that sequence continue at Molineux?

Wolverhampton Wanderers team news

RĂşben Neves was back after a two-match suspension on Saturday, but was surprisingly only a substitute.

Nevertheless, after coming on at half time for the injured Mario Lemina, Neves is set to start this time.

Julen Lopetegui has switched to a 4-4-2 for Wolves’ last three games, so could stick with that here.

Toti will continue to cover at left-back with Jonny and Rayan AĂŻt-Nouri both sidelined.

On the other side, NĂ©lson Semedo would miss their next two fixtures, Brighton (A) and Aston Villa (H) if booked.

Predicted XI (4-4-2): José Sá; Semedo, Dawson, Kilman, Toti; João Gomes, Neves, Nunes, Sarabia; Diego Costa, Cunha.

Crystal Palace team news

Roy Hodgson named an unchanged XI on Saturday, so it’ll be interesting to see if he makes any changes this time.

Eberechi Eze and Michael Olise continue to flourish in the absence of the injured Wilfried Zaha.

Regular first-choice goalkeeper Vicente Guaita was back on the bench at the weekend, but Sam Johnstone could keep his place.

Cheick Doucouré is one booking away from a two-match ban.

Predicted XI (4-3-3): Johnstone; Ward, Andersen, Guéhi, Mitchell; Doucouré, Eze, Schlupp; Olise, Ayew, Édouard.
