Crystal Palace Preview

When Roy Hodgson took over as Crystal Palace boss, winning the Carabao Cup won’t have been at the top of his list of priorities but that won’t numb the pain of losing 4-1 away to Championship outfit Bristol City. It started well for the Eagles, who took the lead through Bakary Sako but found themselves behind at the break after strikes from Matt Taylor and Milan Djuric. Two excellent second-half goals from Joe Bryan and Callum O’Dowda sealed Palace’s fate, with this their ninth defeat in 12 games in all competitions this season. Included in that was last weekend’s 1-0 loss away at Newcastle United, where they came within touching distance of a hard-fought draw until Mikel Merino’s header five minutes from time won the game for Rafa Benitez’s side. With Palace already five points from safety and four points behind 19th-placed Bournemouth, they really can’t afford to lose this weekend if they hope to avoid being cut adrift at the bottom of the table. Having no natural centre-forward is proving to be a real issue for this team, with wingers Andros Townsend and Wilfried Zaha set to continue as a central pair.

Strikers Christian Benteke (knee) and Connor Wickham (cruciate ligament) are long-term absentees for Palace.

West Ham United Preview

West Ham’s players gave no indication that they have stopped backing manager Slaven Bilic after fighting from 2-0 down to win 3-2 away to Tottenham Hotspur. First-half goals from Moussa Sissoko and Dele Alli left Spurs in a seemingly comfortable position, but Andre Ayew bagged a brace early in the second half to drag his side level. Then, with 20 minutes to go, Angelo Ogbonna headed in a dramatic winner to give a real lift to the chance of Bilic remaining in his job for the foreseeable future. After losing 3-0 at home to Brighton last Friday night, the West Ham board had reportedly giving the Croatian two games to save his job and both he and his team responded bullishly after a slow start. However, they will now almost certainly have to win their first away game of the season to be certain of Bilic staying, having suffered three defeats and two draws from their five away contests this season. Currently finding themselves 16th in the table, defeat here would see crisis club Palace move to within just a point of the Hammers, who also host Liverpool next weekend before the international break. Bilic couldn’t have picked more favourable opposition to face though, having won three and drawn one of his four meetings with Palace as West Ham boss.

West Ham United Team News

Michail Antonio will be assessed as he continues to nurse a rib injury. Both James Collins (ankle) and Diafra Sakho (back) returned to training this week.
