Posted by

The Irons are hoping to extend the unbeaten streak to eight games and secure the fourth straight Premier League win when they visit Selhurst Park on Tuesday. Read about the latest news and stats in our Crystal Palace vs West Ham Preview.

Crystal Palace Recent Form & Team News

It’s been an unsuccessful campaign so far for Crystal Palace (W6, D5, L8) who are sitting in the bottom half of the Premier League standings after 19 matches. The Eagles are lacking goals recently and netted over 1.5 in only one of their last eight PL games. They fired blanks in four of their previous six matches in the league.

Crystal Palace’s leaking defense allowed an average of 2.5 goals in their previous six PL games – only one team conceded more in that span. Roy Hodgson’s side did win their latest game at home, though, ending a winless home streak of four matches along the way (D2, L2).

Player to watch: Wilfried Zaha is looking to score a third career goal against West Ham.

Hot stat: Palace allowed five goals in the final 15 minutes in their last five PL home games.

Hodgson will be without Nathan Ferguson (knee), Wayne Hennessey (knee), Martin Kelly (calf), and Jean-Philippe Mateta. Mamadou Sakho (thigh), Jeffrey Schlupp (thigh), James Tomkins (muscle), and Connor Wickham (ankle) are also out.

West Ham United Recent Form & Team News

West Ham United have better luck than Palace at the moment as they picked up more points at this stage of the campaign than in any season in the last decade (W9, D5, L5). Their games were tight, though, as seven of their nine victories came via a one-goal difference, including each of their previous three Premier League wins. Furthermore, they’ve scored the game’s final goal in six of their last eight games in the league.

The Irons lost just one of their last six matches on the road (W4, D1, L1), and also lost just one of their latest six games at Selhurst Park (W3, D2, L1). Five of those H2H duels produced goals on both ends, while four also provided over 2.5 match goals.

Player to watch: Michail Antonio scored in his previous two games in the Premier League. He now has 41 in the competition for the Hammers – each goal came from inside the penalty box.

David Moyes cannot count on Arthur Masuaku (knee), but the rest of the players are healthy and at his disposal.
