Crystal Palace: Hodgson meets the target ( Recent Form: W D L W W )

The new calendar year has just started and Crystal Palace does not have to worry about a degradation battle. How different was that last season when The Eagles left the relegation zone only in the last weeks of the season. That will not happen again this season, because Palace has already built up a considerable advantage over the teams in relegation distress. That is largely the merit of Roy Hodgson, who does not play attractive football with Palace but does get results with the club from London. If Hodgson does not degrade with this Palace, he has met his objective and the 71-year-old manager is well on his way to meeting that goal. As long as Palace leaves no star players in the coming weeks, The Eagles can assume that they will also be active in the Premier League next season. With a fourteenth place, Crystal Palace is doing well above expectations in the Premier League. There are three players walking around with quality at Palace, but the other eight that Hodgson prepares weekly can not do much. However, that does not matter much, because as long as they keep things closed, those others will take care of the goals. Like all other Premier League-teams, Crystal Palace also had cup obligations in the first weekend of 2019. For The Eagles, the home match with Grimsby Town was on the program and Palace knew to convert: 1-0. Jordan Ayew made the only goal of the match four minutes before time and that was remarkable, especially since the visitors had to go with ten men from the third minute.


Watford: No problems in the FA Cup ( Recent Form: W L D D W )

At a club like Watford, the bar is obviously a lot higher than at Crystal Palace. That is right, because The Hornets also have much better player material. Watford has seven points more than Crystal Palace and that is what The Hornets owes mainly to their great season start. Watford is still reaping the benefits in early January. Because of that great start to the season - Watford fought for the lead in the first weeks of the season - The Hornets still have a seventh place. If Javi Gracia manages to finish seventh in the Premier League with this Watford, the Spaniard has performed above expectations. However, the competition is huge with teams like Leicester City and Everton, who have much more to spend. Watford played a spectacular match in the Premier League last Wednesday. For The Hornets the away match at AFC Bournemouth was on the program and at halftime it was 3-3 in Vitality Stadium. That's what it ultimately was. Four days later there was a lot less spectacle when Watford visited Woking. In Woking, which is an hour's drive from Watford, it became 0-2 for the visitors. Will Hughes made the first goal of the match and substitute Troy Deeney finished the final score at 0-2. On behalf of Watford Darly Janmaat was allowed to make a few minutes again and he is expected again in the basic team of Gracia.



After all, in home games, Crystal Palace can make it difficult for any opponent and for Watford the Saturday afternoon is not a walk-over, but the bookies do not see The Hornets as a favorite. Watford has better material on paper than Crystal Palace and therefore I see value in the Watford +0.25.
