Crystal Palace vs West Ham Prediction & Match Preview

Crystal Palace vs West Ham
England – Premier League
Date: Tuesday, 26 January 2021
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Selhurst Park.

There will be fireworks when Crystal Palace and West Ham United face each other in the London derby at Selhurst Park. 

The Eagles experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-0 loss to Man City, but they are surely capable of making life difficult for the Hammers on home soil. 

The likes of Ferguson, Hennessey, Kelly, Sakho, Schlupp, and Wickham are all out of contention through injuries for the hosts.

The visitors, on the other hand, aim to build on the FA Cup win (4-0) over Doncaster. 

West Ham are eyeing their sixth consecutive win in all competitions, but beating Palace on the road is easier said than done. 

Anyhow, a close encounter is on the cards, and we are tempted to put our money on draw. Defender Arthur Masuaku should be the only absentee in the away team.

Palace could be without six players for Tuesday's encounter through injury, with the likes of Jeffrey Schlupp and Mamadou Sakho sidelined.

However, Wilfried Zaha and Cheikhou Kouyate are expected to be fit to play a full part at Selhurst Park.

The hosts have had a week-and-a-half rest between games but changes may still be made on the back of the loss to Man City, including a possible return for Christian Benteke up top.

As for the visitors, Arthur Masuaku remains absent with a knee issue and goalkeeper Darren Randolph will have a minor injury assessed ahead of the game.

Fabian Balbuena is back in contention for United, but Moyes may stick largely with the same side that beat West Brom last time out in the league.

Michail Antonio, rested for the cup win against Doncaster, has scored the winning goal in West Ham's last two Premier League victories - the last player to score the winner in three consecutive top-flight games for the Hammers was Bobby Zamora in 2007.
