Analysis

Both teams made a good start to the season. Crystal Palace won 2-0 at newly promoted Fulham on the opening day, but then lost 2-0 to Liverpool in the first home game. Watford had a comfortable 2-0 win at home to Brighton on the opening day and then surprised many people with a 3-1 win at Burnley in game 2.

The fixture has been played 4 times over the past 6 years and has always been close during that period, with 3 of the games being draws and Palace winning the other 1-0.

Based on the betting odds and expert views, it looks likely to be another close game, with the majority predicting a home win and a couple going for a draw. Cheeky Punter rate the chance of there being over 2.5 goals at 72%, but they look to be on their own with that analysis.
