Vavel's prediction

Courtesy of VAVEL UK's Jonny Bentley: 

They are picking up points but it has been a difficult start to the season for Wolverhampton Wanderers. Collectively, there does seem to be a bit of tiredness creeping in after last season's lengthy campaign. 

Crystal Palace are very capable of grinding out results but it's not always sunshine and roses. When points aren't picked up and the style is bad, it's doubly bad. Last week's 2-1 victory over Fulham was a reprieve against their three matches without a victory. 

The first goal is always huge with these two teams. Neither are as effective when they have to chase a game. It's anyone's to win but the in-form Wilfried Zaha could be a difference maker. 

Prediction: 0-1

Roy Hodgson: Pre-match comments

"I wouldn't be surprised to see Jaïro picked for Holland. He deserves a lot of praise for how he's performed."

"There aren't many players in the Premier League who can do what Wilf does."

"Wolves have had a very good start to the season. They're a very well oiled unit. We're aware their confidence is high and they have the same number of points as us."

"The only possession that interests me is the amount we have in the final third. We didn't have enough against Brighton but we did against Fulham. We know what we want to produce and what we need to do."

"I can't make any complaints about injuries at the back. The squad is as big and competitive as any time I've seen at the club. I'm doing my best to keep everyone happy and competing."

Nuno Espirito Santo: Pre-match comments

“It’s been basically the same as all the games. We had a good week and the approach is always on searching for improvements. At the moment of the season we are, we still have to improve a lot of things in our game."

“This is what we’ve been working hard on, and the approach is exactly the same, trying to pass as much details as we can on Crystal Palace, because it’s going to be a very tough game, they’re a very good team.”

“I look always at the performance. Things we want to achieve, looking at the pre-season, how we started the competition, the schedule, so it’s not the table. What I see and think is we have to improve. The previous game we had a lot of the ball, had good spells of possession, we were very organised and didn’t concede any chances."

“We made a terrible mistake on a set piece, so this is what I look at, all the details inside the game. It’s what we have to work on during the week, to be able to compete better against Crystal Palace.”
