Crystal Palace and Watford round off their preparations for the new season with a friendly encounter at Selhurst Park on Saturday afternoon.
Patrick Vieira‘s side claimed a 3-1 win at Reading during their most recent exhibition encounter, while Watford cruised to a 4-0 success over Doncaster Rovers.
Cheikhou Kouyate may have been forced to take the walk of shame with just 31 minutes on the clock against Reading, but the Royals’ numerical advantage did not pay dividends as 10-man Palace ran out 3-1 winners at the Select Car Leasing Stadium last Saturday.
Mainz 05 loanee Jean-Philippe Mateta opened the scoring from the penalty spot before John Swift restored parity for the hosts, but Jordan Ayew and Scott Banks both found the back of the net in the final 10 minutes to hand Palace their third victory of the summer.

The Eagles have also claimed 1-0 scalps against Walsall and Ipswich Town away from home, but their only pre-season encounter at Selhurst Park so far ended in a 2-2 stalemate with Charlton Athletic, so there is clearly no better time for Vieira to lay down a marker and secure a first home win before the Premier League resumes.
While Palace’s exploits on the field are cause for optimism, transfer activity off the pitch is where some of the success stories have come for the Eagles, who are thought to be eyeing a move for Arsenal’s Reiss Nelson having already added Conor Gallagher, Joachim Andersen, Marc Guehi and Michael Olise to their ranks.
