Wolves vs Crystal Palace
English Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 2 January 2019
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Molineux Stadium (Wolverhampton).
Wolves continued with their unpredictable form on Saturday when they stunned red-hot Tottenham Hotspur 1-3 away at Wembley. They previously took one point from matches against Liverpool and Fulham netting just one goal in the process.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s men looked to be on the way to lose another fixture when Harry Kane pushed Spurs ahead with a beautiful 25-yard strike early on.
The Portuguese manager obviously had a splendid team talk at the halftime as Wolverhampton Wanderers looked like a completely different team after the interval.
The Wolves did not allow Spurs a single shot in the second half and they turned it completely around with three goals within the final 18 minutes of the game.
Willy Boly, Raul Jimenez and Helder Costa were on target in a victory which catapulted Wolverhampton up to 7th place in the league ladder.
Can they back it up on Wednesday evening when Crystal Palace come to visit Molineux?

Wolves vs Crystal Palace: Prediction
The Glaziers also enjoyed a fine spell of form in December. They earned the biggest scalp of the season last weekend beating defending champions Manchester City 2-3 away at Etihad.
The Glaziers were looking for their third successive win on Boxing Day when they just failed to break the deadlock past a stubborn defensive line of Cardiff City’s.
The well congested schedule saw the Glaziers struggle against Chelsea on Sunday. They will have a very tough job creating in the final third past the stern defense of Wolves’ which kept Tottenham without a single attempt in the second half of the mentioned affair at Wembley on Saturday.
We’ll back the hosts to pick up a clean sheet win as the main betting option here.
