On Thursday, December 26, Crystal Palace will host West Ham as part of the 19th round of the English Premier League. The meeting will be held at Selhurst Park and will begin at 17:00 Cyprus time. The predictionst for Crystal Palace – West Ham.
Crystal Palace is 12th in the English Premier League standings, with 23 points.
The Glaziers won six victories, tied five times and suffered seven defeats in 18 rounds played.
In December, Roy Hodgson’s wards beat only Bournemouth (1:0), after which they tied with Watford (0:0) and Brighton (1:1), and lost to Newcastle (0:1).
Some Crystal Palace players, such as Scott Dunn, Gary Cahill, Joel Ward, Andros Townsend, and Jeffrey Schlupp, are recovering after injuries.
West Ham is located on the 16th line in the standings of the championship of England with 19 points scored.
Hammers chalked up five wins, four draws and eight defeats in 17 games played.
In December, Manuel Pellegrini’s team lost to Wolverhampton (0:2) and Arsenal (1:3), beating Southampton (1:0). The meeting with Liverpool was rescheduled as the Reds played at the Club World Cup.
West Ham has David Martin, Lucas Fabianski, Manuel Lanzini, and Jack Wilshire in the infirmary.
In the upcoming match, bookmakers give an advantage to the hosts: the victory of Crystal Palace – 2.15, the victory of West Ham – 3.20, the draw – 3.60.
It is rather difficult to single out a favorite in this pair since both teams are at the same level, which allows fighting for survival this season.
The glaziers will get an advantage represented by native fans, but if you look at the statistics, it will become clear that the home stands do not always help Roy Hodgson’s wards achieve a positive result.
However, the fact that the Hammers did not play on the weekend can play on their hands. In this busy schedule, any extra day of rest seriously helps football players, especially if they had such days order of magnitude more. Based on this, our forecast is “guests will not lose” for 1.70.
We would also take a closer look at the bet “total over 2.5” for 1.80. We expect an active game from the first minutes since a draw in this match is unlikely to suit anyone.
Our prediction: West Ham will not lose (K. 1.70)
