After a strong run of results, West Ham United have lost their last two games in the Premier League. They will be looking to bounce back when they host the struggling Crystal Palace side at the Olympic Stadium in the 21st round of the English Premier League.
The hosts have been in an up and down rollercoaster since their move to their new stadium. West Ham have won three games in a row before losing in their last rounds in the Premier League. The team have collected 9 points from a possible 15 in their last five Premier League games. Their last game was against Manchester United at home where they lost 2-0.
West Ham are currently sitting in the 13th place in the table with 22 points from 6 wins, 4 draws and 10 losses. They have scored 23 goals and conceded 35 since the start of the season.
Cheikhou Kouyate is not available for the next month after jetting off with the Senegal squad for the Africa Cup of Nations. Andre Ayew is also on AFCON duty. Sam Byram and Reece Oxford stepped up their return to first team action with some minutes for the West Ham U23’s in midweek but might lack match fitness to feature this weekend. Dimitri Payet wants to leave the club this month and won’t be selected for selection anymore.
The visitors have kept their losing streak going in the last few weeks in the Premier League. Crystal Palace have been struggling since the start of the season despite the new signings Alan Pardew made before the season. The team have collected just 1 point from a possible 15 in their last 5 league games. Their last game was against Swansea City at home where they lost 2-1.
Crystal Palace are sitting in the 17th place in the Premier League table with 16 points from 4 wins, 4 draws and 12 losses. They have scored 30 goals and conceded 37 since the start of the season.
Christian Benteke missed their 0-0 draw with Bolton in the FA Cup third round at the weekend with a shoulder injury but will reportedly be ready to play this weekend. Wilfried Zaha and Bakary Sako are both absent for around a month’s time after being called up to play in the Africa Cup of Nations. Loic Remy made his Crystal Palace debut at the weekend but will have to wait for his league debut from the bench.
