Wolves v Crystal Palace Preview

Julen Lopetegui’s men welcome a high flying Crystal Palace side at the Molineux on Tuesday night as both these teams fight for Premier League survival. Wolves slipped down to 14th in the table following Bournemouth’s demolition at the hands of David Moyes’ men on Sunday. Jose Sa, who hasn’t particular had a great season gave away the penalty last weekend against Leicester where they suffered a 2-1 loss courtesy of Castagne’s last winner. Lopetegui’s side however have been on a good run at home, winning three of their last four matches at the Molineux, keeping clean sheets in all three of them. Despite having a six point gap between themselves and eighteenth placed Everton, Wolves can all but be assured of Premier League safety as things stand with matters so tight at the bottom half of the table. Impressive performances off the bench could see Daniel Podence reinstated back in the lineup by Lopetegui.

Crystal Palace on the other hand have been on a high since the return of Roy Hodgson, securing 10 out of the available 12 points on offer in four matches. The Eagles scored 9 goals goals in their first three games under Hodgson, steaming past the likes of Leicester, Leeds and Southampton before eventually held out by a ten men Sean Dyche’s side on Saturday. Sitting currently 12th in the table on 37 points, Palace are now 9 points above the relegation zone – thus, Premier League safety should be confirmed in the next few matches. A victory away to Wolves would mean three away league wins for the first time since May 2019, following their wins away to Leeds and Southampton. The defensive form of both the sides could mean an intense cagey affair, however with victories in each of their previous four meetings against the side from West Midlands, Crystal Palace could have the psychological advantage entering this matchup.
