Crystal Palace vs West Ham Match Preview And Prediction

Crystal Palace vs West Ham:  Last Saturday at Anfield, Crystal Palace defeated the Reds 1-0, taking a significant victory away from the club. Seven days ago, West Ham lost to Fulham at home by 3.15 xG. In the last three Premier League games that Palace has played at home, Jean-Philippe Mateta has scored.

In an unlikely place, Crystal Palace ended their five-game losing streak. Seven days earlier, at Anfield, they stunned Premier League leaders Liverpool 1-0. Oliver Glasner’s men put on an impressively courageous display. They scored through Eberechi Eze, their star player, but they also squandered a few good opportunities.

This weekend, Palace will want to build on their significant victory in Liverpool. On Matchday No. 34 at Selhurst Park, they take on their local rivals West Ham. Less than 72 hours have passed since the Hammers’ hard Europa League quarterfinal second leg against Bayer Leverkusen, the defending Bundesliga champions.

Generally speaking, West Ham won’t enter this game on a high. Seven days ago, they gave one of their worst performances of the year in a 0-2 home loss to Fulham. The team of David Moyes gave up ten shots. Fulham recorded an occasion-specific xG of 3.15. It says a lot about the defensive line the Hammers are in right now.

Crystal Palace vs West Ham: Betting Analysis

In this encounter, Crystal Palace has recent precedent to support their excellent form. Out of their last three meetings with West Ham, they had won two and drawn one. The teams split the points in the rematch, which took place at London Stadium in December of last year, ending in a 1-1 draw.

In the 13 previous head-to-head meetings, both sides have scored. The home victory selection looks quite appealing at these 2.15 odds. After a thrilling victory over Liverpool in the previous round, Crystal Palace will be extremely motivated going into this match. It’s been a while since they’ve had the entire squad available.

Conversely, Fulham defeated West Ham 0–2 at home last weekend, causing significant damage. They also faced Bayer Leverkusen in a challenging Europa League match. Less than 72 hours have passed since the second leg was played in London. Last but not least, Palace comes into match having faced the Hammers three times already, winning twice and drawing once.

The 3.00 odds that are available for Jean-Philippe Mateta to score at any time on Sunday are also quite valuable. The 26-year-old French striker for the Eagles scored four goals in his prior seven games. In the last three Premier League home games for his team, he has scored on goal. Even the matchup against Manchester City (a 2-4 loss) is part of the streak.
