Crystal Palace welcome the visitors West Ham United in the English Premiere League – Round 26. The match will be held on Saturday, February, 9th, at the Selhurst Park (London).
The hosting Crystal Palace attained 5 points in 5 rounds held in the new year. The team scored in all 5 fixtures. They even found the net in the clash against Liverpool – they did yet 3 times! Overall, the hosts are not very effective – their tally is 25 goals made in 25 encounters, but, as we see, even leaders suffer from them at times. In the winter break, Crystal Palace signed Chelsea’s Belgian forward Michy Batshuayi who played for Valencia, Borussia Dortmund, and Mareille. He scored 83 goals in 210 encounters. A forward is a good thing for the hosts.

West Ham United’s effectiveness is better. They made 31 goals. That said, their defense is in a mess. The team allowed 38 goals. In outings, they kept a clean sheet only against Newcastle, who count just 21 goals, and the second-last Fulham.
The ‘Eagles’ take the 14th line in the standings, and their guests take the 12th one. The sides’ breakaway is 1 line and 6 points. Thus, the winner of the Saturday encounter is hard to define. For some reasons, Crystal Palace’s performance on their turf is worse than in outings. Of the total 26 points, the team attained just 12 at home. West Ham have lost in 3 consecutive trips to frugal opponents Burnley, Bournemouth, and Wolverhampton Wanderers. Of 12 away matches, they won only 4. But the guests’ 38 missed goals and their away record give grounds to assume that the hosts will manage to score tomorrow. They will allow as well, as they did during the last 4 West Ham’s visits and in 9 previous head-to-heads overall. The ‘Hammers’ did not net in 3 successive rounds indeed, but before, they scored in 7 of 9 outings. They will probably score tomorrow, because they are used to it, as the history suggests.
Prediction for the match: Both teams to score.
