WBA vs CRY Fantasy Preview:
West Bromwich Albion is not in the best of shapes at the moment as they have been riding a wave of uncertainty despite a victory in their latest game against Sheffield United. Conor Gallagher’s solitary strike sparked the difference between the two sides.
Crystal Palace has failed to strike the right chord of amplification either as they are in the middle of doldrums too, given their recent losses to Burnley and Newcastle United. They did manage to post a rillping showdown against Leeds United, however, they were grounded in no time.
Roy Hodgson and Slaven Bilic have both struggled until now with their sides lacking the vim and vigor that is needed to conjure the much-needed firepower to burn your opponents. This will be an imperative game for both the outfits as anything less than a victory will push them further to the fringes of relegation. These are our fantasy picks for the imminent fixture between two relegation-threatened teams of the League.

WBA vs CRY Probable Teams:
West Bromwich Albion: Sam Johnstone, Darnell Furlong, Bartley, Semi Ajayi, Branislav Ivanovic, Kieran Gibbs, Romaine Sawyers, Matheus Pereira, Conor Gallagher, Karlan Grant, Callum Robinson
Crystal Palace: Vicente Guaita; Nathaniel Clyne, Gary Cahill, Cheikhou Kouyate, Patrick van Aanholt; Andros Townsend, James McArthur, Jairo Riedewald, Eberechi Eze, Andre Aye, Michy Batshuayi
Picks to consider:
Michy Batshuayi is a formidable strike to watch out for and his earlier days with Chelsea and Belgium have honed himself into a lethal goal-scoring machine. Crystal Palace will be pinning their hopes on him to get their firepower going.
Andros Townsend can be a lethal customer when it comes to netting those killer strikes into the net. He hasn’t got a sufficient number to aver his reputation in the league at the moment, however, his spasmodic bursts of instinctive brilliance can tip a lot of scales.
1. James Mc Arthur
2. Conor Gallagher
Match Prediction: Who will win today?
This is a hard prediction to make as the two teams are very evenly matched and extremely closely placed to each other. It will need an individual moment of madness to set things right for two preceptors who are going berserk with the incessant tailspin that their respective sides have plunged into.
