Crystal Palace and West Ham United face off on Saturday in an English Premier League showdown at Selhurst Park Stadium. When these two teams last faced off in August the two teams played to a 2-2 draw.
Crystal Palace currently sits in 11th place in the standings having picked up 23 points so far this season. Crystal Palace really looked impressive in their last game against Norwich City. The offense was able to put up three goals, and that was the difference as they cruised to the victory. Crystal Palace has scored 27 goals total while their defense has given up 27 goals. Conor Gallagher has been the top player for Crystal Palace scoring six goals and adding another three assists. Wilfried Zaha has also been strong, scoring five goals and adding an assist.
On the other side of this matchup is West Ham United who sit in 5th place in the standings having picked up 31 points. In the last game against Watford, West Ham’s offense was strong, scoring three goals and that led to the victory. West Ham has scored 34 goals total while their defense has given up 25 goals. Michail Antonio has been the top player for West Ham scoring seven goals and adding five assists. There are six different players who have scored at least two goals and they are going to need the offense to be strong in this game.
West Ham is the better team, and I expect their offense is going to find success again in this game against Crystal Palace. Look for West Ham to find the back of the net a couple of times, and that will be the difference. Back West Ham on the money line.
