Eagles Due Another Upturn
Palace suddenly have key players fit again just as they meet another struggler for the first time in a while. Town have only won 1 of their last 7 at home in the league.
Based on recent form Crystal Palace are hard to back but there have been extenuating circumstances and they could win here at best odds of 15/8 with Boylesports.
The Eagles are coming through a nightmare period of playing most of the top sides with a lengthy injury list. It’s actually been to their credit that they only lost by a single goal to Spurs, Man Utd and Chelsea.
But Hodgson has Zaha due for his first start in a couple of months on Saturday with other key men Sakho, Cabaye and Loftus-Cheek all suddenly declared fit too.
With those players available, the south Londoners are in a false position. They rank 9th for both shots taken and conceded in the top flight in 2017-18 and that’s with the Frank De Boer data included!
Huddersfield had a 9-point headstart on their visitors by the end of September and that could be cut to just 1 by Saturday night. It will surely be tight but the Eagles have the top flight experience to call upon here.
Odds correct at time of publishing: 07:21 17th Mar, 2018 but subject to change
