Crystal Palace at West Ham 10/5/19 - Premier League Picks & Predictions
Two teams that have been in quite solid form lately will lock horns on Saturday, when West Ham will host Crystal Palace. West Ham are coming off a hard-fought draw on the road, while Crystal Palace did a great job to win a clean victory.
Crystal Palace (3-2-2) were really good in their home match against Norwich last week, scoring an early and a late goal to win by a clean 0-2. They have been in really solid form lately, counting just one loss in their last six matches in all competitions (3-2-1). They are now sitting 9th in the Premier League with 11 points, having scored six goals so far and conceding just seven. Crystal Palace have been mediocre on the road, losing to Tottenham and Sheffield United but beating Manchester United.
West Ham (3-1-3) fought really hard in their away match against Bournemouth, scoring the first and the last goal of the match for the final 2-2 draw. That means that they are undefeated in their last six matches for the Premier League, with their only loss coming in the premiere against Manchester City. The Hammers are at the 5th spot of the league table with 12 points, scoring 10 goals and conceding nine so far. They have been great at home so far (2-1-0), losing badly to Manchester City but keeping clean sheets against Norwich and Manchester United.
West Ham won in this venue last season by 2-3, before a 1-1 draw on the road. They have not lost any of their last eight matches against Crystal Palace (4-0-4). Matches in this venue have been more balanced over the years, with West Ham still having the upper hand (3-2-3). West Ham has been really strong so far and I feel confident in backing them to win here.
