Sunderland vs Crystal Palace Prediction and Football Tips
Premier League football tips – Sunderland vs Crystal Palace prediction.
Sunderland fans might have had a gloomy campaign, but they will have had a fantastic week as they beat Newcastle in the Tyne-Wear derby last weekend, winning for the first time since beating Fulham in the FA Cup back in February.
Crystal Palace have been fantastic since Alan Pardew took over and picked up a huge win at home to the champions on Monday night, so this may be a game full of attacking intent.
Yannick Bolasie and Wilfried Zaha were limited to rather defensive roles against Manchester City, but it worked for the side and they managed to achieve a huge win.
Sunderland: 4-3-3 formation: Pantilimon; Aanholt, O’Shea, Vergini, Jones; Gomez, Cattermole, Rodwell; Wickham, Fletcher, Defoe
Crystal Palace: 4-1-4-1 formation: Speroni; Ward, Dann, Delaney, Kelly; Ledley; Zaha, McArthur, Puncheon, Bolasie; Murray
Over the last 10 games, Sunderland have scored an average of 0.6 goals per game, which is extremely low, especially considering the number of goals conceded per match over the last 10 has been 1.4; it’s not good enough for a side that wants to stay in the top division.
Palace on the other hand have scored an average of 1.4 goals per game over the last 10, but need to improve defensively as they have also been conceding 1.1 on average per game.
Sunderland have been involved in only two games out of the last 10 that have seen 2.5 goals or more, while Palace have been involved in 6.
The last time the two sides met, Sunderland picked up an impressive 3-1 victory at Selhurst Park.
