10th and 13th will meet in the Premier League this weekend with West Ham United shooting down from 10th to their current position after a loss to Manchester United last time out as they welcome Crystal Palace to the London Stadium.
This game is turning out to be one of the toughest ones to call in the Premier League this weekend, as both clubs have moved around the top and bottom half of the table a lot in recent weeks. West Ham’s improved form across October did come to an end with a loss at Old Trafford to United, but they can hold their heads high after that one with David De Gea and the home side’s defence the standout players for them.
West Ham also lost to Liverpool at Anfield three weeks back, but with home victories against Fulham, Wolves and Bournemouth all coming within October too, they were unbeaten at the London Stadium last month across all competitions, as they also beat Anderlecht and Silkeborg in the Europa Conference League too.
Palace are a tricky side to work out this season and they are yet to win two games on the bounce so far. Their October saw them lose to Chelsea before beating Leeds United, as they went on to draw with Leicester City, beat Wolves, before losing to Everton and ending the month on a high with a narrow in against Southampton.
It’s set to be a close one, and a game that has huge implications on where one side sits the Premier League season before the break in two weeks.
