Premier League 2018/19 Gameweek 8: Match Previews and predictions
#8 Crystal Palace vs. Wolves
Wolves have made a promising start to their campaign and could stay up in the Premier League for another season. They have already taken points off two Manchester clubs, and their attacking style of play has been nothing but impressive. They are five games unbeaten with just three points off the Champions League places.
Nuno Espirito Santo's men will be looking to continue their good run of form against a Palace side who lost away to Bournemouth last time out. Benteke is still out for the Eagles, and Roy Hodgson will once look up to their crucial man Wilfried Zaha to provide the goods.
Prediction: Crystal Palace 1 - 2 Wolves
#7 Watford vs. Bournemouth
Watford made a promising start to the campaign winning four games on the trot but since then have managed just the one point from an available nine. Their last week defeat against Arsenal doesn't justify the show they put up against the Gunners. Javi Gracia's men could have easily won the game, but some woeful finishing cost them all three points.
Bournemouth, on the other hand, won at home against Crystal Palace last time out. They are seventh in the league and win would take them above their opponents for the weekend. Regarding stats, there is nothing to chose from between them except the fact that this game promises to be a goal scoring thriller.
Prediction: Watford 2 - 2 Bournemouth
