Watford head coach putting measures in place to avoid repeat of result that relegated his team on last visit to Selhurst Park

Marco Silva's Watford will be keeping close tabs on three players in particular when they travel to Crystal Palace in one of three Premier League fixtures on Tuesday night. 

Silva was relegated from the top flight on his last and only previous trip to Selhurst Park, a 4-0 loss as head coach of Hull City last season, but the Portuguese has put measures in place in the hope of a different outcome this time around.

"We need to be careful with Zaha," Silva told Watford's official website. "He's a good player, a player with very good talents. We'll pay attention to Zaha, to [Andros] Townsend, to [Ruben] Loftus-Cheek like Palace will pay attention to Richarlison, [Troy] Deeney, [Andre] Gray, [Andre] Carrillo and [Roberto] Pereyra.

"It will be a tough match. They have improved since Roy Hodgson arrived. In one moment they can solve the solution but we go there to compete, to take a good result."
