Crystal Palace and Watford will square off in the Premier League on Saturday.

Crystal Palace will welcome relegation-threatened Watford to their Selhurst Park Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday.

The hosts beat mid-table Southampton last time around, with Wilfred Zaha scoring an injury-time winner to help secure a 2-1 win for the Eagles. They have all but secured their top-flight status this term and will look to improve on their 14th-place finish from last season.

Meanwhile, Watford's woes continued last week, as they fell to a 2-1 loss to Burnley in a relegation battle at home. Manager Roy Hodgson has announced that he will leave the club after the season, so it remains to be seen if he can pull them out of the drop zone before he bows out.

Watford, meanwhile, have extended their losing streak to five games; one more will condemn them to the second tier of English football. They have scored exactly one goal each in their last three games, so they expected to score here, but they might not win on their trip to South London. Palace should be able to secure an easy win.
