Tip West Ham - Crystal Palace
Palace had picked four points prior to their game against Brighton but the loss meant they stay in the bottom five for yet another week. Getting out of there forms Palace’s ambition going to this game but they get to meet a West Ham side in great form, having scored six goals in the last two matches. Mexican Javier Hernandez has scored three goals in the last five matches and Lucas Perez has three in the last six matches for West Ham; these two will lead the attack and their threat will form a big basis for West Ham’s quest in the game. With three wins and a draw in the last five matches, West Ham will definitely be firm favorites and with 11 goals in the five matches, they will have the required confidence in attack to go for the kill here. Palace on the other hand, have four points from a possible 15 to show from their last five matches and they have conceded seven goals while scoring four. West Ham have not been able to win back to back home matches in the league in the last 37 matches, but they are on course for this after their 3 – 1 win over Cardiff City in the last game. They are on three wins in the last five home league matches, in which they have failed to score in two matches – against higher placed opposition – Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur. West Ham have scored three goals or more in three of their last five matches at home but they have not managed a clean sheet in the league at home in the last five matches. Still, Palace shouldn’t be too much for West Ham; they have managed just one point in the last five away league matches, only keeping a clean sheet in one of them. In fact, Palace have six wins in their last 29 away matches in the league and have failed to score in 13 of those and they have just eight clean sheets in the process.
Key points West Ham - Crystal Palace
Crystal Palace are winless in their last five away matches in the league.
West Ham have just one clean sheet at home in the league this season.
West Ham have scored three or more in three of their last five home league matches.
Conclusion West Ham - Crystal Palace
West Ham are clearly the favorites in this game, but they have to address their defensive frailties, having conceded in each of their last five league matches at home and kept only one clean sheet in the eight they have played. They go to this game on two back to back wins, having scored six goals in the process and they will be the more confident going to this game. Palace have not been the best when playing away from home and we have reason to believe this will still end in defeat for them.
