Roy Hodgson’s team have been on a solid run over the last few weeks. Even though West Ham were able to put in a decent performance against Liverpool and claim a credible draw, they are unlikely to offer much in this away match based on some of the recent away performances. Crystal Palace have been quite solid especially when it comes to matches at Selhurst Park, which used to be a problematic aspect for the team in the first half of the campaign. After wins over London opponents Fulham and Tottenham, Palace will be confident. Our preview would back a home win.

West Ham win odds: 3.80
Correct Score odds
Palace have a lot of form and confidence coming into this match. Even though West Ham have been able to pick up a win and a draw – over teams like Arsenal and Liverpool – in the last five matches, most of their success has been at the London Stadium. The Hammers have struggled on the road and it is unlikely to be any different against a team that has kept back-to-back clean sheets against London teams at home. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-0 win for the Eagles.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The Eagles remain a poor team going forward with only 26 goals from 25 matches this season, but there has been an improvement on this front due to the return of players like Christian Benteke. Still, West Ham’s away blues make our total goals prediction go with under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Luka Milivojevic has become Crystal Palace’s top scorer this season by largely resting on the hits from the spot. The midfielder is the first choice’s penalty taker for the Eagles and there is a greater chance of penalties settling the opener due to the difficult nature of the contest. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Luka Milivojevic.
