PREDICTION
Crystal Palace have not lost in their last five league matches although four of those have been draws with the bulk of their points coming at Selhurst Park. Here they face a Watford side who have not won any of their last three league outings, but with that said, Marco Silva’s team are certainly no pushovers and are good value for at least a share of the points.

MEMORABLE MEETING
2016 saw the two sides pitted together in the FA Cup semi-final and it would be Alan Pardew who would be leading his team to Wembley once again in the final as the Eagles were 2-1 winners. This was thanks to goals from Yannick Bolasie and Connor Wickham which came either side of Troy Deeney scoring for Watford.
