Crystal Palace will be back at Selhurst Park after two away games and will look to continue their good form as they host a poor Swansea side. This game will be important for Palace since they are close to the top 4 and will want to win to add pressure on Spurs are we head into the New Years. Swansea on the other hand will want to get something out of this match since relegation is still a genuine threat.
Crystal Palace are a good team but this match will be a real test due to some key injuries. The two starting strikers are out and there is doubts over the centre backs and this could affect the team. That being said they are going to have their best player. Yohan Cabaye, back and that should boost them. Furthermore they are playing some poor opposition so perhaps it won’t be too bad.
I don’t think that Swansea have much of a chance here. This team is not good and there are out of form. In addition, they will be away from home which will add to their problems. I think that this match might be a little too much for the Welsh side to handle and I expect them to leave with a loss.
As betting goes, I think taking the outright result is the safest bet. We are getting over 2.00 which is good enough and it should be pretty safe so that is my pick. I also think that under 2.5 goals is a good bet since Palace are lacking some quality strikers while Swansea don’t have many goals in them.
