Tip Reasoning

  • West Ham have won their last four Premier League matches, scoring at least three goals in all of them.
  • Crystal Palace are winless in five competitive games, losing four of them.
  • The Eagles have scored just one goal in that five-match period.

Hammers flying high under Moyes

West Ham couldn’t have wished for a better start to the season, with a thrilling 4-2 win at Newcastle on the opening weekend being followed by an even more impressive thrashing of Leicester on Monday to leave them top of the Premier League after two games.

They have scored eight goals across these two games and given their performances so far this season you have to expect they will give this Crystal Palace side a lot to think about on Saturday, with another defeat for Patrick Vieira looming.

Palace look set for struggle

The Eagles started the campaign with a difficult trip to Stamford Bridge and while defeat was expected the level of their performance was a slight concern in that 3-0 loss. They were no less concerning as they played out a goalless draw to Brentford last weekend and defeat to Watford in the EFL Cup in midweek has Vieira in desperate need of a positive result.

It was suspected at the start of the season that Palace’s high turnover of ageing players and an inexperienced manager could be a recipe for disaster and, after three games played and zero goals scored, that predicted certainly seems like it could hold some weight.

Set-piece Soucek to threaten Eagles defence

David Moyes’ side have won their last four Premier League matches and scored at least three goals in all of them. Defensively they haven’t been on the ball, but against this goalshy visiting side a first clean sheet of the season is on the cards, too. I’m backing a Hammers win alongside a 3-0 correct score prediction.

Michail Antonio has been the standout performer for the hosts but the betting interest lies in Tomas Soucek when it comes to the anytime goalscorer market. Soucek has already scored once this season and netted ten Premier League goals last term, with his aerial prowess a large part of his threat in the opposition box.

No team scored more goals from set pieces than West Ham (16) last season and they have already got one to their name this term. Palace conceded 13 from set pieces – only two teams conceded more – last year and Soucek found the net twice against them when these sides met in January.

West Ham predicted lineup: Fabianski; Coufal, Dawson, Ogbonna, Cresswell; Soucek, Rice; Bowen, Fornals, Benrahma; Antonio

Crystal Palace predicted lineup: Guaita; Ward, Andersen, Guehi, Mitchell; Kouyate, McArthur, Gallagher; Zaha, Schlupp, Benteke
