Hammers to clip Eagles' wings
West Ham travel to Crystal Place on Saturday and, buoyed by their midweek success, are tipped to take all three points.
The Hammers have made a stuttering start to their Premier League campaign and sit two places above the relegation zone, level on eight points with 18th-placed Everton.

They have won just twice and scored only eight goals from nine top-flight outings and last Friday’s 3-0 home defeat to Brighton prompted renewed calls for manager Slaven Bilic’s head.

Co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold are not known for firing managers on a whim, but when West Ham slipped 2-0 behind to Tottenham in Wednesday’s Carabao Cup fourth-round clash the vultures were well and truly circling.

What followed may well have saved the Croatian’s job as they stormed back to win 3-2 thanks to a brace from Andre Ayew, and book a quarter-final date with Arsenal.

It is back to league action this weekend and the East End outfit will look to inflict further misery on a Palace side sitting rock bottom of the standings with just one win to their name all campaign.

The Eagles, who are n/a to win, got off the mark by pulling off a stunning victory over champions Chelsea but then went down to Newcastle before a much-changed side lost 4-1 to Bristol City in the League Cup.

Roy Hodgson has clearly got them playing more as a unit and his priority will be survival but it remains to be seen whether he has the players to get out of the mess they are in.

The last thing the former England chief would have wanted was a local derby when passions will running high and so much is at stake for both clubs.

If goals have been an issue for West Ham, then Palace’s return of just two must be keeping Hodgson awake at night, and the form of Wilfried Zaha will be crucial to their hopes.

He is the man who can unlock an opposition defence and bagged the winner against Antonio Conte’s side.

There is no question that Palace are starting to come together but momentum in sport is huge and the nature of West Ham’s League Cup comeback will have given them a real shot in the arm for the return to Premier League action.

Javier Hernandez is the club’s top scorer in the league this term and the Mexican should be raring to go after being given the night off at wembley.

This has all the makings of a tight encounter but, with the wind in the sails, the Hammers are tipped to edge it at n/a.
