Crystal palace vs. West Ham preview

Posted on November 7, 2016 by

Crystal Palace are set to host West Ham this weekend in a Premier League clash.

Palace would be ready to face the Hammers, who are enjoying a fitness boost ahead of the clash at Selhurst Park. The Hammers have suffered a poor start to the new season. West Ham have had just one victory in all league games played so far, and they find themselves in the relegation zone despite the huge sums spent during the summer on transfers.

On the contrary, Palace have won three of their last four games under coach Alan Pardew. A win this weekend would push them to the top six but it would be a difficult tie as West Ham would be seeing another win to boost their hopes this season.

Palace would miss Scott Dann due to hamstring injury, former Chelsea player Loic Remy remains sidelined due to a thigh strain, and Pape Souare’s broken leg would ensure he remains out. Summer addition Andre Ayew ie yet to return for the Hammers, Diafro Sakho, Gokhan Tore, Andy Carroll. Arthur Masuaku and Sam Byram would not be contributing as they remain on the sidelines.

Slaven Bilic would have to get his tactics right as the Eagles would not want any slip at home, especially in their current form. They are in eight position with eleven points. They are unbeaten in five Premier League matches so far – their longest run since December 2015.

In the last three games between both sides in the Premier League, there have been red cards. The pressure hints that a player might get marching orders, but the managers might also likely warn the players ahead of any provocation. Wilfred Zaha, and Christian Benteke would want goals, but they would have to battle Manuel Lanzini. Dimitri Payet and Michail Antonio.
