Crystal Palace has picked up some form and they will want to build on their two wins with another as they travel to the Stadium of Light to face Sunderland. Both teams will know the importance to a solid start to the season and I think that we should see very motivated performances from both teams as a result of this.
Sunderland have had a shocking start to the season and they will know that they have to turn things around if they want to stay up at the end of the season. This team has some talent in regards to attacking and creating chances but at the back they are conceding way too many goals. This week that could mean trouble because Crystal Palace have got their scoring boots on with the likes of Benteke, Townsend and Zaha scoring goals with ease. Sunderland will need to use their home crowd to get inspiration but it will not be easy as the team is still rebuilding as they have only recently changed manager.
Crystal Palace are still stressing over Yohan Cabaye but the team seems to be still doing well without him. This team made some great transfers during the summer window and I think this team can only get better from here.
As far as betting is concerned for this game, we are getting a good enough price to bet on Crystal Palace to win outright. This Palace team is in form while Sunderland is not so I am expecting this to be a great bet. In addition to this, the both teams to score is also a good bet since Sunderland will surely concede but they have a good ability to score as well.
