Zaha is gonna rinse us imo

 

Said this in another thread where mrmojorisin was arguing that Palace aren't a better team than us. Maybe they aren't but Zaha or Townsend are more likely to damage us than our attacking players will do to them.

Zaha is kind of the opposite to HBA in that I think he could benefit from a strict manager like Rafa over someone who lets him do what he wants because as much as a threat as he is, he is still very raw and if he is to become a top player, needs to become much more consistent and improve his decision making among lots of other things. He’s a good player though and a real threat in the final 3rd.

Hope we can put out our better players for this one. We are overdue a game in which we can judge where we are against our peers.

 

On expected goals for and against, Palace are little different to us in spite of much easier fixtures, two of which they have won. Palace were good on expected goals last year, even when they were bottom, due mainly to Benteke missing more than Joselu and Gayle put together. It looks like they are not playing as well as a team this year.

 

With Shelvey and Ritchie playing bit parts so far, we've not looked like scoring from a set piece. To survive or better, that'll have to change.
