Betting tips and match preview | FA Cup
Crystal Palace host Stoke at Selhurst Park in another Premier League clash with Palace looking to register a second win over Mark Hughes side this season, with Stoke looking to recover from their midweek exploits in the Capital One Cup.
The hosts Crystal Palace have had an excellent season under Alan Pardew despite finding themselves in 11th place in the Premier League, they are narrowly behind the chasing pack and a run of results will see them competing with the sides in the top half for a European spot next season. They will be sick of each other come the end of the season but this match is a fixture of two sides who are both in the similar positions in terms of squad strength and club development and the previous encounter between the two sides was a close affair.
Stoke Looking For Quick Recovery
Stoke City come into this match looking to avoid a prolonged hangover period after their defeat on penalties to Liverpool in the Capital One Cup Semi Final. They can take some comfort from knowing that they were by far the better side on the night at Anfield and caused them a number of problems, but it is a lottery when it comes to penalties and unfortunately for them they were on the wrong end of a defeat in that instance. Mark Hughes will be looking for an immediate response and it helps that they have another crack at knockout football against a side that they will be looking to exact revenge on for the defeat in December.
Although league form doesn’t count for much in the FA Cup it’s worth noting, Palace come into this fixture in poor form having lost four, drawn one and won one of their last six. It is this run of form that has seen them drop from a commanding fifth placed to 11th in the table and they will be looking to end this losing streak immediately and the signing of Adebayor could provide a much needed lift. Their last result was a 3-1 loss to Tottenham last weekend.
For the visitors Stoke City their record in the last six is won three, drawn two and lost only one of their last six matches, their last fixture was a 1-0 in normal time but ultimately a lost match to Liverpool on penalties in the Capital One Cup.
Both teams are 10/11 on to score. The first goalscorer odds for Crystal Palace are Marouane Chamakh, Dwight Gayle and Emmanuel Adebayor who are all at 11/2. For Stoke Bojan is at 7/1 with Marko Arnautovic at 8/1.
These two sides have already faced off in the Premier League and Palace won 2-1 and the odds of the same result are 15/2.
