Expect goals from Crystal Palace's trip to Watford

Eagles are poor at the back

Troy Deeney of Watford applauds the fans

Premier League
Saturday 3pm

Goals have been high on the agenda wherever Crystal Palace have travelled this season and a trip to face an out-of-sorts Watford has the makings of another entertaining affair.

Both teams have scored in seven of Palace’s last eight away league matches and their defensive frailties – they have conceded two or more in five of their last six – should please hosts Watford. 

The Hornets are without a win in five league outings but are much happier on home soil and are fancied to make their mark.

Recommendation
Both teams to score & over 2.5 goals
1pt 13-10 Hills
