Crystal Palace welcome a high-flying Wolves to Selhurst Park this weekend in the last round of Premier League action before the international break.

Wolves' 2-1 win over Everton on Monday evening made it four wins from their last five in the league, lifting Bruno Lage's side up to seventh place and just a solitary point behind Arsenal and Manchester United.

Palace, however, will be full of confidence themselves after a statement victory on their travels against Man City last weekend, with Patrick Vieira's side unbeaten in their last five outings.

Eberechi Eze stepped up his injury comeback with an appearance for the under-23s in midweek, but a first team return still a few weeks away for the midfielder.

Similarly, defender Nathan Ferguson remains a long-term absentee for Palace after suffering an Achilles injury, but Vieira has no fresh issues to worry about.

Wolves boast the superior historical record against Crystal Palace, with 29 victories to 22 defeats.

Recent history has tended to belong to the Molineux side, too, having won three out of their last four meetings with the south London outfit in all competitions.

Palace did get the upper hand when these sides met in January - a second half strike from Eze proved the difference - and have not tasted defeat at home to Wolves since 2009.

Palace have typically monopolised possession in home games this season - in stark contrast to Roy Hodgson's teams - while Wolves boast undoubted quality on the counter-attack.

Lage came in for criticism for his approach at Elland Road, collapsing deep after Hwang gave his side the lead early in the first half, and he will need to his side to be more aggressive at Selhurst Park if a similar situation arises.

The Eagles are the draw specialists under Vieira this season, so expect a cagey affair.

Prediction: Crystal Palace 1-1 Wolves
