The Hammers at home against Palace – Saturday – 4:00pm GMT – London Stadium.

Leaders The Hammers are currently 13 places higher than their opponents Palace, when the two sides meet, they will sit in first and fourteenth positions respectively.

Winning the Premier League and securing a Champion’s League qualification is West Ham United’s focus

With The Hammers having secured all three points on their two previous outings, David Moyes’s men will doubtless be looking to retain their run after this fixture.

With six points, they currently sit top of the League having won two games.

When The Hammers host Palace, they will do so on the back of one victory on their own ground.

The ultimate prize this season will be for West Ham United to finish top of the Premier League and secure automatic qualification for the Champion’s League. However, they must play each game as it comes and secure the points, if that is to be achieved.

The Hammers’s squad has depth, but even so, David Moyes is likely to be missing one of they key players when they start Saturday’s game.

Crystal Palace’s Premier League season, has so far seen them gain one point, going into this game

Losing away to Chelsea 3-0, which followed them drawing home to Brentford 0-0, this is a worrying run of form for Palace Manager Patrick Vieira, who goes into this fixture, knowing that only a positive result will be good enough.

Palace are quickly becoming the Premier League’s draw specialists, having recorded one in their last one game. They currently stand fourteenth in the League, with one point drawn one game and lost one game.

Playing away from home, Palace have lost one game.

Crystal Palace will have 4 points if they manage to secure a victory.

Palace’s ever growing list of players missing due to injury or illness to be a concern for Patrick Vieira, ahead of this Saturday’s fixture against their opponents.
