West Ham United are set to play Crystal Palace at the London Stadium on Sunday in the English Premier League.
West Ham United come into this game on the back of a 3-0 win over FCSB in the group stage of the UEFA Europa Conference League. A brace from Spanish midfielder Pablo Fornals and an own goal from Cameroonian centre-back Joyskim Dawa sealed the deal for David Moyes’ West Ham United.
Crystal Palace, on the other hand, beat Ralph Hasenhuttl’s Southampton 1-0 in the league. A first-half goal from French striker Odsonne Edouard secured the win for Patrick Vieira’s Crystal Palace.

West Ham United vs Crystal Palace Prediction
West Ham United are currently 13th in the league, and have won only one of their last five league games. The Hammers have clearly been a force to be reckoned with under the management of David Moyes. Still, a poor start to their league campaign following heavy summer investment has undoubtedly increased the pressure on the Scotsman.
Big-money signings like Gianluca Scamacca and Lucas Paqueta are still finding their feet in the English top flight, but have shown glimpses of their capability. Star midfielder Declan Rice remains the club’s most important asset, and his performances continue to impress.

Crystal Palace, on the other hand, are 10th in the league, two points ahead of West Ham United, who have played a game more. They impressed last season, with a young side, including Marc Guehi, Michael Olise and Tyrick Mitchell, all producing promising performances.
