West Ham collected a good 3-1 home success over Cardiff in midweek to give them back to back league successes. That positive result leaves them at W3 D2 L1 in their last six games, the only loss in that sequence happening against Manchester City. West Ham have produced a W2 D1 record in their last three league home games and overall they have gone W3 D1 L4 at home in the top flight this term. They did have a setback in midweek as striker Marko Arnautovic was injured against Cardiff and will be missing for a while. West Ham have scored 11 and conceded 12 at home this season.
West Ham have actually failed to score in half of their home games in the EPL. Still, even with that, 62% of their home games this term have gone over 2.5 goals. Exactly half of West Ham’s home games this season have made it to over 3.5 goals. In total, the Irons have come up with just the one home clean sheet all season in the top flight and they have not taken one in any of their last five. They have scored 64% of their home goals after the half time break. West Ham have been losing at half time just twice this season on home soil.

Crystal Palace News and Form
Palace had a midweek setback as they were beaten 3-1 at Brighton. That leaves them with a W2 D1 L5 record on their travels in the top flight this season. The Eagles have produced one point only from the last fifteen available to them away from home. In total the Eagles have come up with seven road goals, conceding twelve. They have produced only the two goals in their last four away games and five of their seven away goals this term have been in the second half of games. The Eagles have not won away this season at a side currently above them in the league table (D1 L5).
Crystal Palace have earned a clean sheet in 38% of their away games. They have, however, conceded the opening goal in five of their eight away games this term. The only side to have scored fewer league goals than Palace this season is Huddersfield. Three of Crystal Palace’s away losses this season have been by a margin of two goals. Both teams have scored in just one of Crystal Palace’s last four league games. The Eagles have now failed to win nine of their last ten league games and could really use a boost.
