Looking to build off of what was a stunning upset last weekend, Watford will be hoping to extend their buffer over the drop zone when they make the trip to Selhurst Park on Saturday afternoon.
Shocking almost everyone across Europe with what turned out to be a rampant 3-0 win over soon to be champions Liverpool at Vicarage Road, the Hornets brought an end to their five-match Premier League winless run in some style.
On the flip side, also managing to pick up three points last weekend in what was a 1-0 win away at bitter rivals Brighton, the Eagles have now landed back-to-back victories and have all but confirmed their top-flight status for another year.
However, still showing some cause for concern in South London, Saturday’s hosts also hold a worrying record against what could be a resurging Watford.
Despite picking up a point on the road earlier in the season, Palace have lost their other three meetings against Watford, including a 2-1 defeat the last time the Hornets made the trip to Selhurst Park.

“A remarkable victory”
Although a worrying end to February may have seen many around Selhurst Park starting to look over their shoulder, Roy Hodgson’s men have certainly bounced back.
Picking up a scrappy 1-0 win away at bitter rivals Brighton last weekend, Crystal Palace have landed back-to-back 1-0 wins and now sit within touching distance of securing another Premier League campaign for next year.
However, while the Eagles may have landed back-to-back wins for just the first time since the start of December, the former England boss has been vocal about his side needing to find a clinical edge.
Despite leading marksman Jordan Ayew bagging the winner at the Amex last weekend and equalling his best campaign figures since the 2015/2016 season with Swansea, the Eagles have recorded just two goals in their five 2020 matches at Selhurst Park.

Sarr steals the show
While Watford might still find themselves firmly at the heart of a relegation scrap, there is no doubt that the Hornets will be still brimming from what was a remarkable display against the runaway leaders last weekend.
Picking up a thumping 3-0 win over the defending European champions and continuing on what has been a stellar run of form at Vicarage Road, there is no doubt that Head Coach Nigel Pearson will be excited by Ismaila Sarr’s performance last weekend.
Bagging what was a famous brace against Liverpool and ending their unbeaten run, the 22-year-old has cemented his spot as a fan favourite following his move from Rennes last summer.
With four goals in his last eight Premier League appearances, you might be interested to know that Sarr can be found priced at 5/2 with Paddy Power to once again find the net at Selhurst Park this weekend.
However, after being hit with a horror knee injury at Vicarage Road, winger Gerard Deulofeu is likely to miss the rest of the season after rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament and tearing his meniscus.
