West Ham vs Crystal Palace prediction
West Ham’s strong start to the season has been impressive with Said Benrahma receiving much applause
West Ham United are playing with a lot of confidence and with their Europa League draw completed, they will look to maintain their impressive streak before the match rosters get a bit more congested.
West Ham is the favorite with Grosvenor Sport at 13/25, while Palace is 6/1 to get their first win with Patrick Vieira and a draw is 13/4.
The Eagles are off to a bitterly difficult start with Patrick Vieira with the Frenchman still looking for his first goal let alone winning at Selhurst Park, and the club’s form in London isn’t too pretty, either.
The Hammers, meanwhile, are on a frenzy with eight goals in their first two league games, but the lack of a clean sheet suggests a way for Palace to break off the mark this season.
But with conviction, they have started this season with demonstrations that their form last season was by no means a fluke.
West Ham won their last league match with Crystal Palace 3-2; only once before did they win back-to-back matches against their visitors in 2016/17.
Crystal Palace are winless in their last 10 away games in the London Premier League, drawing five and losing five, scoring just seven goals and conceding 19 in these matches.
Said Benrahma has been involved in four goals in the first two Premier League games this season – two goals and two assists.
Palace’s Wilfried Zaha has received the most fouls (9) and conceded the most fouls (5) for his club this season.
This will be the 45th meeting in all competitions and the 41st in the league between the two teams.
All of their last eight meetings ended with both sides scoring and three ended in draws.
The last win to zero was in January 2017 and the last 0-0 was in February 2012.
