Emmanuel Dennis needs one goal to become only the fourth Watford player to score 10+ goals in a Premier League season, after Troy Deeney, Odion Ighalo and Gerard Deulofeu.
Watford manager Roy Hodgson took charge of 148 Premier League matches at Crystal Palace between 2017 and 2021, more than any other manager for the Eagles in the competition. This will be his 30th Premier League match against a side he’s previously managed in the competition (W12 D5 L12), already more than any other manager has done.
Wilfried Zaha has 13 direct goal involvements in his last 16 PL away matches against promoted sides, scoring eight goals and assisting five.
None of the seven victories in Premier League contests between Crystal Palace and Watford have been by more than a one-goal margin – it’s the most wins a Premier League fixture has seen without any of them being by more than one goal.
