Crystal Palace – West Ham : Preview & Prediction
Crystal Palace, wedged in the soft belly (12th), can in case of victory over West Ham climb into the first part of the ranking … The Eagles are only 3 lengths of Tottenham, 7th. The Hodgson team thought they would draw in Newcastle but lost this weekend on a goal from Almiron at the very end of the match (83rd). This failure breaks the good streak of Zaha’s teammates (3 goals) who had just taken 8 points out of 12 distributed in Burnley (2-0), against Bournemouth (1-0), at Watford (0-0) and against Brighton and Hove (1-1). But Crystal Palace intends to start again ahead of the Hammers. West Ham, meanwhile, flirts dangerously with the relegation zone since Noble (1 goal) and his team are only 4 units ahead of Aston Villa, 18th. The Hammers have totaled 5 defeats in the last 7 days but they have signed 1 very important success in view of the maintenance in Southampton (1-0) which comes after 2 defeats in Wolverhampton (2-0) and against Arsenal (1-3) at the London Stadium. Very fragile, West Ham will find it difficult to glean points from this trip to Crystal Palace.
