Tip Reasoning

  • Palace have lost only once in 10 home games
  • The Eagles have scored 1.8 goals per home match this season
  • Over 2.5 goals has landed in each of Palace’s last four
  • West Ham have seen at least three goals in 63% of their Premier League outings so far

Hammers bounce back

West Ham boosted their European hopes with a 4-1 win over Watford on Tuesday. They broke a five-game winless streak with that win, but can they build on it in a difficult visit to Crystal Palace this weekend?

The Eagles have only lost once at home after 10 games, while they won 3-0 against Norwich to finish off 2021. Having taken seven points from their last three home games, Patrick Viera’s side represent a stern start for the Hammers.

West Ham’s defensive woes

West Ham returned to winning ways, but they conceded in their win at Watford. The Hammers have shipped eight goals across their last four matches. While they were able to overcome Watford, expect a bigger test from the Eagles.

Odsonne Edouard has been involved in four goals in his last three Premier League games, with Palace looking good going forward. They have Wilfried Zaha back from a ban this week too, having put three past Norwich without their star man. The Eagles are now averaging 1.8 goals per home game, so this will be a tough one for the Hammers.

Good game for goals

Both teams have scored in each of the last nine Premier League meetings between Crystal Palace and West Ham. Earlier this term they drew 2-2, while West Ham won 3-2 in their last visit to Selhurst Park.

Palace have seen over 2.5 goals in each of their last four at home, while 63% of West Ham’s league games have seen at least three goals scored. Expect another high-scoring clash between the pair this weekend.

It’s hard to split these two, as West Ham are unbeaten away to bottom-half sides but Palace have lost only once in 10 at home. Given that, a 2-2 draw is my correct score prediction.

Crystal Palace predicted lineup: Butland; Ward, Tomkins, Guehi, Mitchell; Schlupp, Hughes, Kouyate; Ayew, Edouard, Zaha

West Ham predicted lineup: Fabianski; Coufal, Dawson, Diop, Masuaku; Soucek, Rice; Bowen, Lanzini, Benrahma; Antonio
