West Ham vs Crystal Palace - Premier League preview and team news


Bookmark and Share

By Stephen Donovan

Friday 18 April 2014

Two sides who have launched themselves from the relegation mire to mid-table meet on Saturday as West Ham United host Crystal Palace.



West Ham’s last two games have both been extremely tough, and despite losing both encounters, they emerged with credit. In the first half, they certainly looked capable of pulling off a notable victory at Arsenal, taking the lead through Matt Jarvis, but after the break they were outplayed.


Lying on 37 points, safety looks effectively guaranteed for the Hammers, but manager Sam Allardyce will want to make sure of it by taking all three points here.


And that will not be an easy task having been leapfrogged by their local rivals on Wednesday as Tony Pulis continues to work his magic with Crystal Palace. A run of four straight wins including Wednesday’s superb performance at Everton has lifted the Eagles to the crucial 40-point mark with four games still to spare, a remarkable achievement considering that they were universally expected to go down in November.


Kevin Nolan remains a doubt for West Ham after missing the trip to Arsenal, while James Collins is back in contention having recovered from injury.


Crystal Palace are set to name an unchanged line-up from the win at Everton, with Kagisho Dikgacoi their only injury doubt.
