Crystal Palace V Sunderland: Tips and prediction – 03.11.2014

By on November 9, 2014
Crystal Palace will host Sunderland in the last game of 10th fixture of Premier League. The game will take place monday from 20:00 and the odds are very balanced and we also expect a very balanced game.
 
Crystal Palace have the first chance at first view, being the team with better numbers right now and with the advantage of supporters. The londoners are on the 16th position at the moment, with nine points and a negative goal difference (13-16). Their attack looks very good, but the defence is the biggest problem. Palace managed to win only four points on this stadium after four games. Speroni, Dann and McArthur are all in doubt and they could miss this game.
 
Sunderland looked very bad in the first nine games of this campaign, proof that they are under the red line right now, with eight points in their account. The away team has one of the worst defence in the league, with 17 goals conceded so far. When it comes about away matches, Sunderland are on the 19th position in Premier League, ticking only two points and scoring only two goals in four matches. They will be without Alvarez, Giaccherini, Coates and Jones, all four being injured.
 
Crystal Palace was the better team last season, winning the first meeting, 3-1 on this stadium. The second game between these two clubs was a goalless one.
 
Crystal Palace vs Sunderland probable lineups:
Crystal Palace (4-4-1-1): Speroni – Kelly, Hangeland, Delaney, Ward – Puncheon, Ledley, Jedinak, Bolasie – Chamakh – Campbell.
Sunderland (4-1-4-1): Mannone – Vergini, O’Shea, Brown, Aanholt – Cattermole – Johnson, Larsson, Rodwell, Buckley – Fletcher.
 
Prediction: Over 2.0 goals AH @ 1.53
We expect an open game, with some goals, maybe from both sides. Palace have to try to get the victory, while Sunderland are in a bad situation and they need three points more than ever this season.
The best odds for Crystal Palace vs Sunderland: 2.10 – 3.50 – 3.80
