The two sides come into the match in excellent form in the Premier League as Crystal Palace host Wolves at Selhurst Park on Saturday.

Patrick Vieira’s Crystal Palace side are fresh from an impressive victory away at Manchester City while Wolves enjoyed a home victory against Everton on Monday night.

Palace arrived at the Etihad with a plan which was already in motion early on as Wilfried Zaha struck after just six minutes to give the visitors an early lead.

Guardiola’s men were unable to respond as Aymeric Laporte saw red shortly after half time to make matters worse, with Conor Gallagher finishing off an impressive counter-attack to end City’s eight-game unbeaten run and Palace’s own streak of five games without a win.

The victory saw Vieira’s side rise to 13th in the Premier League table and are undefeated in their last five league matches – a stat only three other sides can boast.

One of those sides is their upcoming opponents Wolves who’ve seen an upturn in their results, though Palace are undefeated at home so far this season which only Liverpool have matched.

Wolves

The Midlands side are on an impressive run of their own under the management of Bruno Lage, winning five of their last seven Premier League games which has left them in 7th position.

Their last fixture against Everton ended in a comfortable 2-1 home victory thanks to two first half goals from Max Kilman and Raul Jimenez to seal yet another three points – which has Lage’s side just four points off the Champions League positions.

A rejuvenated Raul Jimenez has certainly aided their impressive form, which has seen his side win three of their last four away matches – a stat welcomed as they face a Palace side unbroken at Selhurst Park so far.

The impressive Wolves duo of Jonny and Pedro Neto remain out with long-term injuries, while Marcal is still missing due to a calf injury.

With that being said, Bruno Lage is set to name a relatively unchanged side as Hwang Hee-chan, Raul Jimenez and Trincao look to continue their impressive form.

As for Crystal Palace, there is encouraging news for Eberechi Eze who played 62 minutes for the Palace U23s after recovering from an injury sustained in May, though isn’t in contention for the squad on Saturday.

Patrick Vieira will look to name unchanged side from the one which impressively dispatched Manchester City last weekend, with Michael Olise being the only possible contender to push for a starting position.

Crystal Palace vs Wolves – kick off at 3pm (UK time) on Saturday 6th November 202
