West Ham V Crystal Palace: Match Preview, Predicted XI And Betting Odds

West Ham reacted positively after their narrow defeat to Manchester United last weekend by getting their sixth consecutive win in their Conference League group versus FCSB on Thursday evening.

They will, though, face a sterner test when they take on Crystal Palace at the London Stadium. The Eagles beat Southampton 1-0 last time out and they will be keen to get a second consecutive victory under their belt.

In terms of team news, Lucas Paqueta is likely to be on the bench after recovering from a collarbone injury, while Lukas Fabianski (knee) and Maxwel Cornet (calf) remain doubts.

West Ham’s Predicted XI To Face Crystal Palace:

Areola, Kehrer, Dawson, Zouma, Cresswell, Soucek, Downes, Rice, Bowen, Scamacca, Benrahma

Eagles boss Patrick Vieira has doubts over Odsonne Edouard and Cheick Doucoure (both knocks), while James McArthur (groin) and Chris Richards (thigh) remain out of contention.

Crystal Palace’s Predicted XI:

Guaita, Ward, Andersen, Guehi, Mitchell, Schlupp, Milivojevic, Eze, Olise, Mateta, Zaha

The bookies have made the Hammers the favourites with Coral pricing them at 10/11 odds-on for the win. A draw is 5/2 with Unibet while a victory for Palace is 10/3 at Betfair.

Predicted Score – 1-0 to West Ham
