Crystal Palace eased to a comfortable victory in their last fixture as they defeated Norwich 3-0 thanks to a goal each from Odsonne Edouard, Jean Mateta and Jeffrey Schlupp. The result continues a mixed run for Palace with two wins, two defeats and a draw in their last five. They sat 11th in the table going into this round of games and each of their last four have gone over 2.5 goals. At home, the Eagles have lost just once this campaign winning three of their last five.
West Ham bounced back to form last time out as a goal each from Tomas Soucek, Said Benrahma, Nikola Vlasic and a Mark Noble penalty saw them defeat Watford 4-1. It put to an end a three-game winless run and put them four points behind Arsenal in fourth. Eight of their last nine goals have been scored by a different player. On the road, the Hammers had gone four without success until that victory at Watford.
Crystal Palace vs West Ham: Match Stats
The last four games at Selhurst Park have gone over 2.5 goals and all of the last nine have seen at least two goals. West Ham have been involved in ten goals in their last two games alone. Backing goals looks the order of the day here and over 2.5 looks a nice price.
Jarrod Bowen is at the heart of most good things West Ham do and that was shown in midweek when he got a hat-trick of assists. Palace have kept a clean sheet in just one of their last eight and that was against a goal shy Norwich. Bowen to assist at anytime looks the play here after his three in midweek.
