Wolverhampton Wanderers face Crystal Palace on Saturday

Without a win in their last four games in all competitions, Crystal Palace welcome Wolverhampton Wanderers to Selhurst Park for a Premier League clash on Saturday.

In their last Premier League game, Crystal Palace were put to the sword by Tomas Soucek, as the midfielder scored twice in a 3-2 win for West Ham.

Palace actually took the lead in that game through Wilfred Zaha's early goal. However, a Craig Dawson goal in addition to Soucek's brace ensured that Michy Batshuayi's goal in second-half stoppage time was just a consolation.

Palace are 14th in the Premier League table, with 23 points from 20 games. Incidentally, Wolves are also level on points with Palace, but are a spot above the Eagles due to a superior goal difference.

In their last game, Wolves earned a creditable point at Stamford Bridge, in Thomas Tuchel's first game in charge of Chelsea.

Chelsea had the bulk of the possession, and the better chances, but couldn't find the goal.

That was an important point for Nuno Espirito Santo's side, who have not been in the best of form lately.

Wolves hold an advantage in the head-to-head record against Palace. They have won 29 times against the Eagles, losing only 21 of the 69 previous matches against them.

The last time these two sides faced each other was earlier this month, when Wolves won 1-0 in the FA Cup third round thanks to a goal from Adama Traore.
