West Ham United Preview

West Ham are continuing to suffer from something of an injury crisis at this moment in time, and despite not being at full strength, were embarrassed by both their performance and conduct after going down 2-0 away to Wigan in the FA Cup. Will Grigg fired the Latics ahead after just 7 minutes, as Arthur Masuaku saw red early in the second half after shockingly spitting at an opponent. Wigan took full advantage of the extra man as Grigg scored his second of the game from the penalty spot, leaving the Hammers to focus solely on Premier League survival between now and the end of the season. In the league, West Ham have enjoyed a complete turnaround in fortunes, losing only one of their last nine games and remain unbeaten in five, highlighting the effect David Moyes has been able to have on the club. That is despite having to deal with an incredible absentee list, which was worsened at the weekend through Pedro Obiang’s knee injury and Arthur Masuaku’s suspension and looks particularly bleak in attacking areas. West Ham are now in talks with Graziano Pelle about a possible move to the club, with Javier Hernandez remaining at the club despite being linked with a move away.

West Ham United Team News

West Ham could be without as many as 10 first-team players here, with Jose Fonte, Winston Reid, Arthur Masuaku, Pedro Obiang, Edimilson Fernandes, Manuel Lanzini, Michail Antonio, Andre Ayew, Marko Arnautovic and Andy Carroll all set to miss out.

Crystal Palace Preview

Roy Hodgson hasn’t suffered too many aggravating days since becoming Crystal Palace manager but certainly had one against Arsenal after watching his team fall to a 4-1 loss at the Emirates Stadium. Arsenal were rampant early on, cruising to their victory in the first half and found themselves two goals to the good after 10 minutes through Nacho Monreal and Alex Iwobi. Laurent Koscielny and Alexandre Lacazette also struck in the first half to leave Arsenal home and dry before half-way through the first-half, with Luka Milivojevic’s consolation in the second half giving little reprieve for the Eagles. Going unbeaten in the three Premier League games before their visit to the Emirates, Arsenal were the last team to beat Palace before then and are the only team in the Premier League to take three points from them since November 5. They are otherwise unbeaten in 11 games that haven’t come against Arsenal - form which has caused their rise to 13th in the table. Given the West Ham injury list at this current moment, Palace will be aiming to secure victory over their London rivals on Tuesday evening, whom they drew 2-2 with at Selhurst Park back in October.

Crystal Palace Team News

Mamadou Sakho (calf), Jeffrey Schlupp (knee) and Ruben Loftus-Cheek (ankle) are all set to miss out on Tuesday. Scott Dann and Jason Puncheon are both out for the season with cruciate ligament injuries.
