My Revenge On Ben Foster

Wolves are in great form right now.

After losing three first three matches, Wolves have taken 16 points from the last 21 on offer.

Performances levels did dip slightly in October but Wolves still had positive results.

Against Everton on Monday though, Wolves were great, especially in the first-half.

Hopefully, that display will have confidence sky-high ahead of Saturday’s game with the Eagles.

Previewing all the fixtures for BBC Sport, pundit Mark Lawrenson has given his prediction for the game.


In his eyes, Wolves’ unbeaten run is actually going to come to an end.

Predicting a 2-1 win for Palace, he said: “Both of these sides have found a bit of form recently, and they have followed a similar trajectory in the way they are improving, game by game, after a slow start.

“It is Palace I am going with here, because they have got home advantage, but Raul Jimenez is scoring goals again for Wolves and they will carry a threat.”

Palace a test for Wolves

Vieira has got Palace playing some good stuff, and they are slightly unlucky to be down in 13th place at the moment.

And they have proven difficult to beat, having lost just twice in the league so far.

Wilfried Zaha is obviously a big threat and needs marking tightly, while Christian Benteke and new signing Odsonne Edouard have both been in the goals this season.

As Lawrenson points out though, Jimenez is scoring goals once more and looking close to his best again.

Should the Mexican and his new partner-in-crime Hwang Hee-chan both be on it at Selhurst Park, then more points could well be in the offing.
