Crystal Palace midfielder Jeffrey Schlupp says that he is expecting "a tight game" with Watford in Sunday's Premier League clash at Vicarage Road.

Crystal Palace midfielder Jeffrey Schlupp has said that he is expecting an "evenly-matched" contest against Watford on Sunday.

Palace have registered three points from fixtures against Fulham and Liverpool, while Watford have defeated both Brighton & Hove Albion and Burnley in their opening matches.

Schlupp has acknowledged that Watford deserve credit for their start, but the left-sided player has backed the Eagles to match their hosts at Vicarage Road.

The 25-year-old told the club's official website: "They've started well with two wins out of two and I am sure they will be really confident at home but even though they are a good team I also class us as a good team and I can see a tight contest.

"I feel we are very similar in playing styles, evenly matched and it should be a good game with us hopefully coming out with the three points."

Schlupp has made 45 appearances for Palace since leaving Leicester City for Selhurst Park in January 2017.
