EPL

Crystal Palace 1-0 Watford

Watford is relegated from the Premier League after a 1-0 defeat to Crystal Palace.

The visitors never got going in the game, with Palace dominating from the first whistle.

Zaha scored the match’s only goal from the penalty spot in the first half, coolly slotting to convert after Kamara’s handball.

After the break, Palace was just as good, with Foster pulling off some great saves to keep Edouard, Mateta and Schlupp.

After Kamara received two bookings, Watford finished the game with ten men, making things harder for his side.

Starting lineup:

CRYSTAL PALACE STARTING XI (4-2-3-1): Jack Butland; Nathaniel Clyne, Joachim Andersen, Marc Guehi, Joel Ward; Conor Gallagher, Will Hughes; Michael Olise, Eberechi Eze, Wilfried Zaha; Odsonne Edouard.

CRYSTAL PALACE SUBS: Cheikhou Kouyate, Christian Benteke, Remi Matthews, Luka Milivojevic, James Tomkins, Tyrick Mitchell, Jeffrey Schlupp, Jordan Ayew, Jean-Philippe Mateta.

WATFORD STARTING XI (4-3-3): Ben Foster; Kiko Femenia, Craig Cathcart, Samir, Hassane Kamara; Moussa Sissoko, Edo Kayembe, Tom Cleverley; Ismaila Sarr, Josh King, Emmanuel Bonaventure Dennis.

WATFORD SUBS: Samuel Kalu, Ken Sema, Oghenekaro Etebo, Christian Kabasele, Daniel Bachmann, William Troost-Ekong, Adam Masina, Jeremy Ngakia, Dan Gosling.

Goals:

ZAHA SCORES! He had to wait a long time to take it, but it doesn’t faze Zaha! It’s a reasonable penalty, and he remains for Foster to shift to his right before coolly curling his penalty into the opposite side of the net. 1-0 Palace.

Zaha and Vieira have a great relationship. However, the Frenchman has recently spoken about using the talented 29-year-old as a central striker rather than a winger.

“I have to convince him, and that will take time, but that is a position that I believe he can play,” Vieira told Palace’s official website.

“He’s solid at holding the ball, he is capable of linking the game, and he can drop in the midfield.

“I believe this is a position that he can excel in for us. We’ve had a couple of conversations about that. He doesn’t say no, but it takes him time to buy into it.

“Wilfried loves football. You put him on the right, and he will complain, but he will still do the job. Put him up front, and he will complain, but he will still do the job.”

So, what’s next?

That’s Watford’s fourth relegation from the Premier League. Next up for them will be Everton at home.

Crystal Palace has moved up to ninth with that win, and they travel to Aston Villa for their next game.
