THE TEAM NEWS

WEST HAM

  • The shock 4-0 loss in the League Cup to Oxford United was clearly an aberration for West Ham as their league form remains pretty strong.
  • Following the 2-2 draw at Bournemouth, they are forced into one change as Fabianski has been ruled out for several weeks with injury.
  • Roberto will come in goal for him while Lanzini is also a candidate to return to the starting line-up at the expense of Pablo Fornals.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Roberto; Fredericks, Diop, Ogbonna, Cresswell; Noble, Rice; Yarmolenko, Lanzini, Felipe Anderson; Haller

Unavailable: Reid (Injured), Antonio (Injured), Fabianski (Injured)

Doubtful:

CRYSTAL PALACE

  • Crystal Palace eased past Norwich last weekend 2-0 which has moved them into mid-table ahead of a tough run of fixtures for them.
  • Roy Hodgson has a relatively settled team right now although Milivojevic is suspended so that could see Townsend come into the side.
  • Sakho remains an injury doubt and so Kelly could well deputise once again while Hodgson may switch to a 4-4-2 for this game.

Predicted line-up (4-5-1): Guaita; Ward, Cahill, Kelly, Van Aanholt; Townsend, McArthur, Kouyate, Schlupp; Zaha, Ayew

Unavailable: Milivojevic (Suspended)

Doubtful: Sakho (Injured), Wickham (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

West Ham have quietly been going about their business tidily in the Premier League picking up 12 points from their opening 7 matches which is impressive following their opening day 0-5 hammering by Man City. They can continue that good form at home with another three points against Palace.
