Crystal Palace will look to continue their mini resurgence when they host Wolves on Tuesday evening.
Patrick Vieira’s men seemed to have turned a corner after the victory over Leeds, and while they were held to a drab goalless draw away to Leicester in their last Premier League outing, they appear to be a bit more assured about themselves.
In stark contrast, Wolves may have pipped Midlands rivals Nottingham Forest 1-0 at Molineux thanks to a Ruben Neves penalty, but they find themselves just a point above the relegation zone.
Moreover, Wolves are on the hunt for a new manager, and speculation has mounted that Nuno Espirito Santo could make a dramatic return.
While it is still too premature to call this a six-pointer, it is one Wolves would loathe to lose.
To drum up excitement for this clash, we have handpicked a couple of tips for you to line your betting slips with.
Crystal Palace to enjoy home comforts
Home form is the bedrock of any decent campaign, and Palace will eager to address that judging by how things transpired against Arsenal and Chelsea respectively.
Nevertheless, Selhurst Park is a lively atmosphere, and the Palace fans will play their part and act as the 12th man.
Wolves, meanwhile, are experiencing a bit of an identity crisis, and they could be made to suffer at times in this match.
In each of their past three league meetings with Wolves, Palace have come out on top, and less than 2.5 goals have been scored. Interestingly, Wolves have kept more clean sheets this term (4) than Palace, but they haven’t necessarily been rewarded.
I’m liking the look of the Correct Score section and Palace to register a 2-0 victory. If you fancy following up on that, then William Hill is offering an intriguing price of 9/1.
Wilfried Zaha to complete the last act
Although Palace have been far from prolific this season, managing just 10 goals, Zaha’s importance to the cause can never be understated.
So far, Zaha has weighed in with four goals, and he will be key if they are going to keep themselves away from the relegation zone.
Zaha is always direct. He is a nightmare for defenders to face as he boasts terrific pace, and he can draw tackles in dangerous positions.
This could be the sort of night where Zaha gives the Wolves a good working over, and he could well enjoy the final act of the evening. If you are tempted by the Goalscorer Market, then Paddy Power is dishing up odds of 5/1 for Zaha to wrap things up and net Palace’s last goal of the game.
