According to The Sun (via Daily Star), Watford’s Odion Ighalo is on West Ham’s radar as the Hammers line up a move for a new striker in the summer transfer window.  The 26-year-old Nigerian has scored 15…

Sunderland vs Crystal Palace – Premier League preview and team news

Sunderland will be determined to claim three points which could take them out of the bottom three as they entertain a woefully out-of-form Crystal Palace at the Stadium of Light on Tuesday evening. Despite the distance between the sides in the league standings, there was little to separate Sunderland from West Ham United on Saturday, but a failure to convert one of several second half chances proved their undoing and they came away with a defeat that keeps them second from bottom, albeit with a superior goal difference to the teams around…

West Brom vs Crystal Palace – Premier League preview and team news

Crystal Palace will be desperately looking to end their awful run of results in the Premier League by winning away to fellow mid-table side West Bromwich Albion in Saturday’s late kick-off. The home side were in need of a victory themselves last time out in the top-flight when they travelled to Everton, and in a fashion typical of a Tony Pulis team, they delivered the goods right when it mattered. They had to withstand almost constant pressure throughout the 90 minutes, but a performance characterised by rock-solid defensive organisation and a…

Two sides that have ambitions of qualifying for Europe through the league this season meet on Saturday as Stoke City take on Crystal Palace in what has all the makings of an entertaining affair.

Everton vs Crystal Palace – Premier League preview and team news

Crystal Palace’s second Monday night assignment in the space of three weeks sees them make the journey to Everton, who are a point and two places behind them in the Premier League table. It should be a different story in that regard, with Everton having thrown victory away in their last league match at Bournemouth. Leading 2-0 with 10 minutes to go they allowed themselves to be pegged back, and even after going back in front as late as the fifth minute of stoppage time at the end, they still…

Crystal Palace vs Arsenal – Premier League preview and team news

After going down to a thoroughly unexpected home loss to West Ham United on opening weekend, Arsenal are targeting their first points of the season against another London club, Crystal Palace. A convincing success at Norwich City suggested that the Eagles are continuing to go places and look a good bet to improve on last season’s final placing of 10th. Although fortunate not to be pegged back to 2-2, they played with the authority of an established Premier League side, proving clinical in front of goal and coming up with…
