The CRY vs WAT match preview –
In the Premier League, Crystal Palace will be up against a high-flying Watford side in the third round of games for either team.
Crystal Palace won the first game of the season but were immediately schooled by Liverpool in the next. The team is still in a process of becoming a midtable team in the Premier League, and this stern test against Watford will prove them their mettle. Manager Roy Hodgson saved the club from relegation when he took charge and has done well till now. He has the likes of Wilfred Zaha, one of the most sought-after talents in the country, and his presence on the pitch dictates how aggressive Crystal Palace play.
However, Watford have started this season on a flier. They have won both of their two games of the season and will be high on confidence. The team has goals early and have always managed to hold onto the result. Manager Javi Garcia is imposing his will over this team, and this might turn out to be the best season for The Hornets, in terms of both points and the position where they finish in the points table of the Premier League.
