PREMIER LEAGUE TREBLE
West Brom have got rid of Pulis and signed Pardew. It seems a very strange decision and it may be a very poor one. Pardew isn’t know for organising a defence and grinding out results, and it’s hard to see them going toe-to-toe with any side in the league in the goal scoring department. Palace are able to do that with certain sides with good pace and young attacking players. They have come back from the dead to give themselves a chance at survival and have the better form of the two here.
Watford have played well this season and always look like scoring goals. The defence has been suspect at times and they were taken apart by Man United last week. They’ve struggled to keep out the better sides this season but aren’t afraid to go for all 3 points. Spurs are struggling for form with the 3 key players under-performing of late. Spurs need to win here if they are to maintain their Champions League ambitions and the open style of Watford may give them the invitation they need.
Everton responded well to the appointment of Big Sam by thrashing West Ham 4-0. They’ve struggled for goals and have been shocking defensively so it looked like the perfect remedy for them. There is still plenty of work to do for the former England manager, but picking picking up 3 points here would be a good start. Huddersfield struggle away from home but need to start picking up more points on the road. They’ve slipped towards the relegation zone and have failed to win or score in the last 3 away. Everton should have enough here.
