West Ham VS Crystal Palace


Preview
West Ham United and Crystal Palace face at Olympic Stadium, in a match for the 16th round of the Premier League. The head‑to‑head history of the last 3 years favours the home team, since in the last 7 matches they won 3, tied 3 and lost 1. The last head‑to‑head between these two teams was played on 30‑01‑2018, and ended in a draw by (1‑1). Both teams register significant differences between home and away results, so the home/away factor is worth atention.

Analysis of West Ham United

The home team is currently in the 12th position of the league, with 18 points won, after 5 wins, 3 draws and 7 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in an away match against Newcastle United, by (0‑3). In the last match, they won in a home match against Cardiff City, by (3‑1). This is a team that, oddly enough, has had better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 7 wins, 4 draws and 4 losses in away matches; against 6 wins, 3 draws and 6 losses at their stadium. For the league, West Ham United won 10 points out of 24 possible points, after 3 wins, 1 draw and 4 losses in the last 8 home matches. In their home league matches the most frequent result at half‑time was the 0‑0 (3 out of 8 matches). Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. They have conceded the first goal in 6 of their 15 matches for this competition, and have never been able to turn the score around.

West Ham comes to this game motivated after a 3-1 home win over Cardiff: Lucas Pérez and Michail Antonio scored the goals of the victory. The home team should play in a 4-4-2 tactical system to try to take advantage of the counter-attacks. In any case, it is expected that West Ham will adopt a more defensive posture, with the aim of not granting spaces to its opponent. The coach will not be able to count on Fredericks, Yarmolenko, Sánchez, Lanzini and Reid for being injured.

Confirmed Lineup: Ł. Fabiański, F. Balbuena, P. Zabaleta, I. Diop, A. Masuaku, R. Snodgrass, Felipe Anderson, M. Noble, D. Rice, Lucas Pérez, J. Hernández.
Coach: M. Pellegrini.

Analysis of Crystal Palace

The away team is currently in the 15th position of the league, with 12 points won, after 3 wins, 3 draws and 9 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in a home match against Burnley, by (2‑0). In the last match, they lost in an away match against Brighton & Hove Albion, by (3‑1). This is a team that usually gets better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 8 wins, 1 draw and 6 losses in away matches, with 26 goals scored and 16 conceded; against 5 wins, 3 draws and 7 losses at their stadium, with 22 goals scored and 18 conceded. In the last 8 away league matches Crystal Palace has a record of 2 wins, 1 draw and 5 losses, so they have won 7 points out of 24 possible.

In this competition, they haven’t won any of the last 5 away matches. In their away league matches the most frequent result at half‑time was the 0‑0 (3 out of 8 matches). Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 15 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 9 times and have never been able to turn the score around. In the last 12 away matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 5 of their 11 goals between minutes (76'‑90').

Crystal Palace comes to this game unmotivated after a 3-1 away loss to Brighton. The away team usually plays in a tactical system in 4-4-2, privileging the fast transitions, mainly through the wings. In this tactical formation, the two men responsible for launching the panic on the opposing defensive are Zaha and Townsend. The coach will not be able to count on Wickham, Benteke and Scott Dann for being injured.

Confirmed Lineup: W. Hennessey, J. Tomkins, A. Wan-Bissaka, M. Sakho, P. van Aanholt, A. Townsend, J. McArthur, M. Meyer, L. Milivojević, C. Kouyaté, W. Zaha.
Coach: R. Hodgson.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario for this game will be the occurrence of a few goals. A balanced meeting is expected, however, the average goal in the games of both teams is relatively high. It should be noted that Crystal Palace needs to react to the bad moment that it is going through in the away games, providing a more open game. The last four games at this stadium ended with a "Over 3.5 Goals" winning.
