Here’s our preview for the Crystal Palace vs West Ham Premier League match along with stats to make up your bet builders and a couple of football betting tips that may interest you.
On Saturday afternoon in the Premier League’s early kickoff, we see 15th-placed West Ham United take on 12th-placed Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. Both sides are now just a couple of points away from guaranteeing their safety to ensure they are playing Premier League football next season.
Earlier this season the two sides met at the London Stadium. On that occasion, Crystal Palace staged a fantastic comeback after going 1-0 down and goals from Olise and Zaha ensured Palace took home the three points.
Crystal Palace’s form
Crystal Palace have recently improved their results after the departure of Patrick Viera.
Roy Hodgson was appointed on the 21st of March, and since his arrival, the Eagles have managed ten points out of a possible fifteen.
In Palace’s previous Premier League game, they were beaten by Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-1, which put an end to a four-game unbeaten run for Roy Hodgson’s side.
West Ham’s form
In their most recent Premier League game, David Moyes’ side were beaten by Premier League giants and somewhat underachievers this season, Liverpool 2-1.
West Ham currently sit 15th in the Premier League standings and a win on Saturday could push them one step closer to retaining their Premier League status.
The Hammers are still in the Europa Conference League after beating Gent 5-1 on aggregate. West Ham will now face AZ Alkmaar in the semi finals.

West Ham have Declan Rice, one of the best defensive midfielders in the Premier League.
The Hammers will struggle to keep their captain at the club next season.
Many big clubs are after Declan Rice’s signature in the summer. Rice has also had five goal contributions, but the Englishman has more to his game than just goals and assists.
He also averages fifty-six passes a game, which benefits the Hammers and helps with their counter-attacking play style.
Crystal Palace’s attacking midfielder Eberechi Eze has reignited his form under the new appointment of Roy Hodgson.
The Englishman has scored three goals in the last five Premier League games.
The midfielder had a drop in form, which saw him get benched under Patrick Viera. Earlier in the season, Eze managed to get seven goal contributions in twenty-eight games.
He has now got back into the starting eleven under Roy Hodgson and he will be hoping to finish the season strong.
