Crystal Palace Free Bets 2019/20

Crystal Palace FC, known by their nickname the Eagles, are a Premier League club. Formed in 1905, the South London outfit have played their matches at Selhurst Park throughout their history; the stadium holds 27,000 people. They are co-owned by American businessmen Joshua Harris and David Blitzer and chairman Steve Parish, who sold a stake the club in 2015.

Palace were promoted a year earlier and have established themselves as a solid club in the division over the past few years. Crystal Palace are yet to win a major trophy, having finished third in 1990-91 before being relegated in the first ever Premier League season with a record number of points, 49. They reached the FA Cup final in 2015, losing to Manchester United.

Notable former players for Palace include Ian Wright, who started his career at Selhurst Park before going on to become Arsenal’s record goalscorer, Mark Bright and Andrew Johnson, who scored 21 league goals in 2004/05. Their all time record goalscorer is Peter Simpson, who scored 165 goals in just six years between 1929 and 1935, while Jim Cannon holds the record for the most appearances having played 660 games between 1973.

Crystal Palace’s traditional home shirts are red and blue stripes, but that wasn’t always the case. Before 1973, they played in claret and blue stripes. Despite being located in London and playing in close proximity to a number of clubs including Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham, their main rivals are Brighton, with that match often being dubbed the “M23 Derby”. They do have rivalries with more local teams like Charlton Athletic and Millwall, but the lack of matches with them means they are not as intense as they once were.

Crystal Palace predictions season 2019/20

Crystal Palace’s lack of investment this summer has a lot of people fearing for what could happen at Selhurst Park this season. Even more worrying for Roy Hodgson is the fact that Wilfried Zaha has been a summer target for a number of clubs including Arsenal, who saw two bids rejected before moving on to other targets. While they have kept him, Zaha has made it clear that he wants to leave the club and pursue his dream of playing in Europe, so his mindset will be interesting to see at the start of the campaign. Unlike most clubs, who have a system centring on the team, Palace play through Zaha and without him they’d need an entirely new identity. The sale of Aaron Wan-Bissaka to Manchester United has also had an impact.

Relegation odds are quite high, and there is actually decent value in that because of the lack of investment. They may not go down, but it’ll be a long, hard season.
