West Ham United vs Crystal Palace Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

West Ham registered a second consecutive league victory after a 3-1 success over Cardiff at the London Stadium. Substitute Lucas Perez came up with a quick-fire brace just after the break, while Michail Antonio was able to come up with a third goal to put the Hammers in a very comfortable position. Cardiff pulled a late goal through Josh Murphy to spoil West Ham’s hopes of a second consecutive 3-0 win. Crystal Palace lost 3-1 against Brighton to suffer a first defeat in three matches. Glen Murray’s penalty provided Brighton with a fortunate lead, but the Seagulls went down to 10 men after Shane Duffy’s 28th minute red card. Leon Balogun, though, scored within seconds after coming on as a substitute while Florin Andone continued his good form with a brilliant solo goal just before half-time. Luka Milivojevic’s second-half penalty only became a consolation for Palace.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Palace have been able to enjoy a spirited run of form in the last few weeks but this London derby pits them against a form team like West Ham, who have been able to enjoy a great time on the pitch in recent weeks. West Ham have scored over 2.5 goals in three out of the last five games. Even without Arnautovic, the Hammers will have more than enough confidence and form to win this match.

West Ham have been playing excellent football thanks to the likes of Felipe Anderson and Javier Hernandez being clinical in front of goal. Palace have been defensively better compared to the first few weeks but they may not be able to hold off West Ham for long. An attractive choice is to back over 1.5 goals from West Ham.

West Ham United Preview

Pellegrini is starting to make an impact at West Ham in recent weeks with a team playing some excellent football. The situation was expected to improve with West Ham recovering from a lengthy injury list at the start of the campaign, but the situation has once again worsened with Arnautovic set to miss almost a month due to a hamstring problem. Still, the match against Cardiff showed that West Ham have a number of capable replacements lined up since Lucas Perez came up with a brace.

West Ham United Team News

Aaron Cresswell (hamstring), Jack Wilshere (ankle), Andriy Yarmolenko (Achilles tendon), Carlos Sanchez (collateral ligament), Manuel Lanzini (cruciate ligament), Marko Arnautovic (hamstring), Ryan Fredericks (shin), and Winston Reid (ligament) once again make up for a huge injury list for Pellegrini.

Crystal Palace Preview

Roy Hodgson continues to be disappointed with his Crystal Palace team’s inability to get results even when they have been playing well. The last three matches have seen a strong performance from Palace – even when they have been without a natural centre forward. Yet, results have conspired against the Londoners, who remain outside the bottom three after the recent improvement in results. Yet, the threat of relegation is still serious for the Eagles.

Crystal Palace Team News

Christian Benteke (knee) is the only player missing from action for Roy Hodgson.
