Read our preview about this Premier League West Ham United vs Crystal Palace match, here below.

During the last 5 matches in Premier League, West Ham was more strong as they took 2 wins and stood unbeaten. Hosts have a great h2h recent history, as they won 2 out of 4 last home games. Crystal Palace won over the West Ham only in 2014/15 season. Last 4 games finished with goals from both teams.

West Ham United

The Irons started this season from the crashing lost to Manchester City 0:5. They were fully demoralized, however, should be prepared for such a result playing against Premier Lague Champions. But this did not break them as a team but rather raised a very good lesson for the whole season. We see at the beginning of the season that the team under the leadership of Manuel Pellegrini is very well kept and shows excellent results. After this lost against City, they are unbeaten already in 6 games, and 3 times they were winners.

Most interesting, that in Premier League West Ham still unbeaten in away matches, as they once won against Watford and drawn 3 other games against Bournemouth, Aston Villa and Brighton. Of course, they are not Grands to be proud but playing away even SuperClubs losing point against such opponents. The Hammers won last 2 home Premier League matches over Norwich and Manchester United saving clean sheet in both games.

By playing against Oxford at EFL Cup 1/16 Finals, Manuel showed that he did not intend to spend the valuable energy of the players on this tournament and left at the very beginning by losing to Oxford with 4:0 result. This means that the team will purposefully play in every game of the Premier League against even the most dangerous opponent. By the way, newcomer Sebastian Haller showing very confident football and already scored 3 goals and gave 1 assist.

Michail Antonio and Winston Reid will miss this game due to Thigh and Knee injuries.

Crystal Palace

The Eagles also started this season well and now they are 1 point behind West Ham. However, Crystal Palace lost twice this season away, against Tottenham conceding 4 goals and against Sheffield United. Most interesting, that Manchester United have already 2 losings this season and both of them against West Ham United and Crystal Palace. Guests showing much better results at Selhurst Park. They won and drawn by two games.

In Premier League they are at 9th place now, however, only 1 point behind of Hummers and Gunners. If not so bad match against Tottenham, they would be one of the best defence showing teams in PL. Unfortunately, they have scored 6 and conceded 7 goals in 7 matches. Guests conceded in all PL recent games. Although, they only conceded 1 goal playing at home in the last 4 matches. With Roy Hodgson, they called several experienced players this summer.
