Best prediction football for Crystal Palace vs West Ham United
Crystal Palace face West Ham United in the Premier League’s 19th round derby. The match will be played on Thursday, December 26, from 5:00 pm at Selhurst Park Stadium.
The Crystal Palace team ranks 12th in the provisional standings with 23 points to its name. The hosts have been unsuccessful in three consecutive games, so they will try to end this series without success. In the last round, Crystal Palace played a weak game and lost their visit to Newcastle United by 0-1. Previously, the team recorded draws against Brighton and Watford 1:1 and 0:0, respectively.
Crystal Palace have won 33% of their home matches in the Championship. The Eagles have averaged 0.78 goals on their own ground – this is the second lowest achievement in the division with only Watford scoring less on their own ground. Crystal Palace have lost 3 of their last 5 households in the Championship and are out of shape. Roy Hodgson’s alumni make a lot of goals and at the same time have difficulty finding the net, so the situation is not good for them at the moment.
However, the situation on the West Ham United team is no better. The Hammers are ranked 16th in the provisional 19-point standings. Manuel Pellegrini’s days at the head of the London club appear to be numbered. However, in the last round West Ham United recorded a positive result, winning St. Mary’s Stadium vs. Southampton. Sébastien Haller’s only goal in the match was 37 minutes into the match to put his team away at 4 points from the relegation zone.
West Ham have lost 3 of their past 5 visits, but their recent victories over Southampton and Chelsea have given rise to optimism for the team. I expect the guests’ ascension to continue and I will bet on a double chance X2 in the upcoming match. Enjoy our best prediction football for today!
