FINAL-TIME: Crystal Palace 2-3 West Ham United

A heart-wrenching end to the game as West Ham managed to hold on to their lead - despite late problems.

Michail Antonio strike and a Manuel Lanzini double in the first-half put the Hammers in a comfortable lead.

But two late goals by Odsonne Edouard and Michael Olise weren’t enough for the hosts to equalise.

West Ham are in fifth place, moving to just one point behind Arsenal.

Nearly incredible finish

That would’ve been an absolutely insane ending to this game.

A wild cross found Mateta inside the box and the forward hit an overhead kick that *JUST* missed the goal.

GOAL! Crystal Palace 2-3 West Ham

Oh there will be drama.

Michael Olise’s cross from a free-kick found its way straight into the net.

They can’t, can they?

20:235 months ago

Last substitution

Manuel Lanzini, the MOTM of the evening, is off for Mark Noble.

Having more men in the middle is definitely what the Hammers need right now.

20:205 months ago

GOAL! Crystal Palace 1-3 West Ham

It was coming, and it’s a much deserved goal as well.

Great cross from Olise found Edouard and the striker nicked the ball into the net.

Could we see some more drama tonight? 

20:145 months ago

Another Palace chance

A bit more scramble in the box and from a free spot Ayew shot straight at Issa Diop.

Following corner wasted by the hosts.

20:135 months ago

West Ham yellow card

Arthur Masuaku has been booked for bringing down Olise, but nothing followed.
20:095 months ago

Mateta heads wide

Good play for Palace ended with Mitchell’s cross into the box, the ball found Mateta but the Frenchman headed wide.

Meanwhile Jairo Riedewald replaces Will Highes.

20:075 months ago

West Ham substitution

And we have another change.

Nikola Vlašić replaces Said Benrahma. That was the wingers final game for West Ham before joining Algeria’s national team at AFCON.

Earlier Jean-Philippe Mateta replaced Luka Milivojević and Michael Olise came on for Christian Benteke for Palace.

20:025 months ago

Antonio comes close

What a goal that would’ve been!

Antonio touched a loose ball down and smashed it on a volley from outside the box, but it narrowly missed the goal.

19:515 months ago

Another chance goes begging

That could’ve been a lovely, lovely goal by the hosts.

Joachim Andersen found Ayew down the wing, his cross was perfect for Edouard but the French forward’s shot was wide.

19:465 months ago

Palace efforts come to nothing

After a bit of a mixup, the ball found Tyrick Mitchell down the left, but his shot was blocked by Coufal.

A short while later Edouard had a good chance, but dragged his shot over the bar.

19:405 months ago

Back underway

46’ And we are back.

One change at HT - Ben Johnson is off, replaced by Arthur Masuaku.

The fullback was on a yellow card.

HALF-TIME: Crystal Palace 0-3 West Ham United

A very, very comfortable lead for the visitors despite Palace having for than enough chances to have scored.

And their wasted chances cost them dearly as the Hammers put three, brilliant goals by Guaita.

Can Palace turn this around? Or will we see an absolute smashing tonight? We’ll have to wait and see!

19:265 months ago

GOAL! Crystal Palace 0-3 West Ham

Well I was just about to write a Half-Time comment, but there’s another goal!

A very poor control by Luka Milivojević saw him handle the ball inside the box, and the following penalty was converted by Lanzini.

A potential hat-trick on the cards? 

19:175 months ago

Benteke’s effort denied again

43' This game has been a great goalkeeping show.

After Guaita’s double save early on, Fabiański has also stepped on his top game.

And now he’s yet again denied Benteke whose half-volley was very good, but Fabiański managed to stretch enough to catch it cleanly.

19:065 months ago

Palace looking for a contact goal

32' So, so close by the hosts.

First, Odsonne Edouard smashed the bar from 11 yards out and seconds later Christian Benteke was denied by Łukasz Fabiański’s feet.

19:045 months ago

GOAL! Crystal Palace 0-2 West Ham

That is a quite ridiculous goal from Manuel Lanzini.

After a great run and opening pass from Declan Rice, the Argentinian skipped past Andersen with some brilliant technique and smashed the ball into the top corner on a half-volley.


18:595 months ago

GOAL! Crystal Palace 0-1 West Ham United

And there he is! Antonio scores again as he looks to have refound his brilliant form!

A fantastic cross from Benrahma was turned in from a very close range by the Jamaican.

18:545 months ago


15' Oh my, that is one of the best saves I’ve seen in a good while.

Vladimir Coufal got a cross in towards Michail Antonio, the striker managed to get a shot on goal but it was saves by Guaita.

The keeper managed to clear, but it fell straight to Said Benrahma whose header was incredibly kept out by the Spanish keeper.

18:375 months ago

Schlupp hits the post!

2' What a start that could’ve been for the hosts!

Will Hughes’ cross was deflected by Craig Dawson, and as it was looking to go out of bounds, Jordan Ayew managed to keep it in.

The forward then teased in Schlupp, who fired the ball into the post from a tough angle.

Crystal Palace v West Ham Prediction

Considering the form of the two teams as well as their latest matchup, which finished with a 2-2 draw, my head would go with another tied result, possibly a 2-2 again.

But I have a feeling that West Ham will continue their good form and end up winners.

Prediction: Crystal Palace 1-3 West Ham.

West Ham United: Good enough for TOP 5, not good enough for trophies

Well, they’ve been very, VERY good, haven’t they?

Since David Moyes’ return, two years ago, the Hammers have been nothing short of exceptional - on all fronts.

UEFA Europa League group stage winners? Check. Challenging the TOP 4 on a consistent basis? Check. Beating some of the league’s best in a wonderful manner? Check.

Add to that their Carabao Cup results - as they threw out Manchester City and Manchester United, before going out v Tottenham - and you already see a base for a consistent TOP 6 threat.

Crystal Palace: Exceeding expectations

With the arrival of Patrick Vieira, who previously enjoyed a very average managerial spell at OGC Nice, Palace fans weren’t overly impressed.

But some smart signings, such as Marc Guehi and Joachim Andersen to bolster the team’s defensive unit, mixed with a playstyle that just suits the clubs identity started what, so far, has been a very good season.

If The Eagles continue their performances and great transfer business, there is a good chance they will be able to challenge for European football sooner than thought.

The match will be played at the Selhurst Park

The Crystal Palace v West Ham match will be played at the Selhurst Park, London, with a capacity of 25,456 people.
