Crystal Palace vs Wolves: Predictions
Wolves are on the back of a seven-game winless run in the Premier League; however, Nuno Espirito Santo’s men can take some confidence into the game following their 0-0 midweek draw against Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea.
Roy Hodgson was left furious with his side’s defending in their 3-2 defeat to West Ham last time out. Palace’s defending has left the Londoners slumped in 14th place and with the second-worst defensive record (36) – only West Brom have conceded more goals (48).
The two sides met earlier in the month in the FA Cup, Adama Traore’s first-half strike was enough to earn Wolves a spot in the fourth round in a game where Palace failed to register a single shot on target throughout the whole 90 minutes.
Wolves have suffered from the omission of Raul Jiminez, following his head injury suffered against Arsenal. Without the Mexican’s goals, Wolves have only won once in the league which came against Chelsea back in December.

Crystal Palace vs Wolves: Match Stats
The two sides have found themselves struggling in front of goal this season, both occupy places in the bottom half of the table for goals scored. Jiminez is still joint top scorer for Wolves with only four goals this season and Palace have relied heavily on moments of brilliance from Wilfried Zaha with striker Christian Benteke only netting three times this season.
Tyrick Mithcell is expected to have a busy afternoon with Traore typically playing on the right side of the Wolves attack. The young Englishman has registered 38 tackles this season and with Wolves’ attack spearheaded by the Spaniard, he will have to add a few more to hold out the visitors.

Palace are without a win against Wolves since early 2019, however, this seems as good of a time as any for Hodgson’s side to cause Wolves a problem with Espirito Santo’s men struggling to score without their main talisman in Jiminez.
