Roy Hodgson’s Watford and Patrick Vieira’s Crystal Palace go head-to-head at Vicarage Road in Premier League action on Wednesday night. The Hornets secured a vital victory at Villa Park in their last one and will be desperate for back-to-back wins. However, the Eagles are not an easy nut to crack under Vieira. This fascinating Premier League fixture in Hertfordshire could go either way. Check out our tips and the latest betting odds.

Watford Preview – Can the Hornets build on last weekend’s win?

Watford secured a precious three points last time out, which was Roy Hodgson’s first victory as Hornets boss. Emmanuel Dennis scored in the 78th minute to give Watford a 1-0 win against Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa.

The success at Villa Park was the Hertfordshire club’s first win since beating Manchester United 4-1 at Vicarage Road back on November 20th. After that one, Watford went on to lose ten of the following 12 league and cup fixtures. They are still in a precarious position in the Premier League table, sitting in 18th with a mere 18 points to their name.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1611 GMT, Tuesday 22 February)

Watford would love to follow up the Villa Park victory with three points on their own patch on Wednesday. At the time of writing, the bookies are offering 21/10 for a home triumph.

Crystal Palace Preview – Will the Eagles fly back to the capital with all three points?

Patrick Vieira has made a steady start to life as a manager in the Premier League. Crystal Palace are in 13th position at present, collecting 26 points from 25 games. Overall, the Eagles have won five, drawn 11 and lost nine.

Vieira’s side could do with all three points at Vicarage Road having not won in six Premier League matches. Since beating Norwich City 3-0 at Selhurst Park in late December, Palace have drawn three and lost three of six league fixtures. However, they have beaten Millwall and Hartlepool United in the FA Cup since the turn of the year.

Palace edged the last Premier League meeting between the pair, with a Jordan Ayew goal giving the Eagles a 1-0 home success back in March 2020. The reverse game that season ended in a goalless draw.
