With just a handful of games remaining in the Premier League season, Watford travel to Crystal Palace knowing that they need to pick up at least a point to keep their battle against relegation going.

The visitors haven’t enjoyed their season at all, spending most of the campaign in the bottom three but there is still hope that they can pull off one of the biggest shocks in Premier League history and escape the drop. They need to avoid defeat in order to stand a chance of avoiding the drop but they have lost seven of their last eight games.

Crystal Palace have had a bit of an up and down time of things in recent weeks, picking up wins over Arsenal and Southampton but being downed by Newcastle and Leicester. The side are only two points off of the top half though and Patrick Vieira will be keen for his side to pick up the points need to achieve a top ten finish.

The attacking talent at his disposal gives Vieira a great base for next season and he’ll be keen to keep the likes of Eze and Olise at the club despite links to other clubs in the Premier League.

Crystal Palace vs Watford match stats

Crystal Palace have had another season of progress, although that might not show in their league position. They’ve scored more goals than last season though and are certainly playing a better style of football under Patrick Vieira.

Watford know they must come away from this game with a victory but their recent form doesn’t show this is likely. There have been signs of life in the side though, with the team scoring in their last three matches.
