West Ham v Crystal Palace Predictions

West Ham United are looking to begin a new era under boss Manuel Pellegrini this season. The Chilean manager, who has previously won the title during his time in charge of Manchester City, arrived back in England this summer and was supplemented with a handful of big money signings including Felipe Anderson and Issa Diop and as such, confidence was high at the London Stadium of a successful season this time around.

With some difficult fixtures, it wasn't much of a surprise when the Hammers got off to a difficult start but they've started to pick up some impressive results since then and they come into this Saturday's fixture against fellow Londoners Crystal Palace on the back of a decent run of form that has seen them lose one of their last five and win two in the last week, so you can back them for another three points here at 5/4 with BlackType.

Crystal Palace needed to improve under Roy Hodgson to escape relegation last season but this year they seem to be struggling towards the bottom of the table and may have to fight against the drop zone again. The Eagles started slow last season but slowly improved after the former England boss came in to replace Frank de Boer in the early stages of that campaign but they struggled to improve the squad in the summer in some key areas.

As such, the Eagles currently sit in 15th place in the Premier League table and they've picked up just one win in their last ten games in all competitions. The South Londoners will have been hoping to use that solitary win, at home to Burnley last weekend, as a springboard to some better form but in midweek they fell to a defeat against arch-rivals Brighton & Hove Albion. You can back them to pick up a vital away victory here at 5/2 with Betfair.

West Ham v Crystal Palace betting tips

The home side seem to be playing with a bit more confidence in recent weeks but that clean sheet at Newcastle last weekend remains something of an anomaly as the Hammers have kept only the one in their last eleven games in all competitions. Palace's struggles for goals have been well documented with their return of eleven being the second worst in the division, so we're backing the home win and BTTS bet at 7/2 with Ladbrokes.

Lucas Perez finally ended his goal drought and got on the scoresheet for the first time as a West Ham United player in midweek, bagging a brace in his side's 3-1 win over Cardiff City in midweek. Surely the Spaniard will have the confidence to add to his tally with another goal in this game on Thursday night at odds of 21/10 with Betfair.

West Ham v Crystal Palace best odds
