Crystal Palace vs West Ham United Match Preview
Manuel Pellegrini keeps digging out big results away from home to ensure he remains as West Ham manager – but may have to settle for a Boxing Day point against Crystal Palace.
The Chilean is still the warm favourite in the Premier League Sack Race market at 6/5 with bookmaker Paddy Power, but you suspect he might have been gone but for the 1-0 victories within the last month away to Chelsea and Southampton.
There will certainly be no excuses for Pellegrini here because West Ham have had a comparatively charmed run up to the busy festive programme, going 12 days without a game as their scheduled opponents Liverpool were winning the Club World Cup last weekend.
While the Hammers had their feet up, Crystal Palace were losing 1-0 at Newcastle – as we predicted – and they continue to be involved in low-scoring contests with a solid defence, despite being troubled by injuries, but an attack that is struggling to score goals.
Manager Roy Hodgson is keen for the Eagles’ owners to release some transfer funds in January and surely some more creativity and a proven goalscorer will be high on the priority list if they do.
West Ham have a good record against Palace, particularly at Selhurst Park, and in a match that is unlikely to contain many goals we are backing the spoils to be shared.
