Attacks could be on top when Watford visit Crystal Palace

Powerful Palace forward Christian Benteke

Premier League
8pm Tuesday

Crystal Palace are unbeaten in five league matches at Selhurst Park but defensively they have plenty to prove and a visit from a free-scoring Watford should produce another entertaining encounter.

The Eagles have notched two goals in each of their last five home games while the exuberant Hornets have scored two or more in seven of their eight road trips.

Both teams possess an array of attacking stars but they also have suspect defences. Palace have not kept a clean sheet at home in the league this season while Watford have shipped ten goals in five away matches.

Recommendation
Over 2.5 goals
2pts 19-20 Hills
