What channel is Crystal Palace v West Ham on? Kick off time, live stream and latest team news

Check out all the latest TV details as Crystal Palace host West Ham in a Premier League showdown live on BT Sport this week.

West Brom West Ham

Crystal Palace have failed to kick on in 2020/21 and must pick up their form if they are to avoid being dragged into a relegation fight with a clash against West Ham next on the agenda.


Palace sit 13th in the table with just one win in their last eight top flight outings. Boss Roy Hodgson has been rightly praised for his role in establishing Palace in the Premier League but a failure to march up the league to the ‘next level’ has frustrated some fans.

We are heading into a busy period of Premier League fixtures and Palace’s situation could look a whole lot different, for better or for worse, by the end of it.

West Ham head into the match brimming with confidence having won three in a row and they remain undefeated in all competitions in 2021.

Boss David Moyes is getting a tune from his talented crop of players and could end the night as high as fourth – above Liverpool – should results fall their way.

Crystal Palace v West Ham team news

Crystal Palace predicted XI: Guaita, Ward, Kouyate, Tomkins, Mitchell, Townsend, McArthur, Milivojevic, Eze, Zaha, Benteke.

West Ham predicted XI: Fabianski, Coufal, Dawson, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Rice, Soucek, Bowen, Benrahma, Fornals, Antonio.

Our prediction: Crystal Palace v West Ham

West Ham are simply getting more out of their existing squad than during last season. Too many big signings didn’t turn up in 2019/20, but Jarrod Bowen and Tomas Soucek have truly stood up to be counted in 2020/21.

Michail Antonio continues to enjoy a terrific late peak in his career and remains the biggest match-winner on the park, while Said Benrahma is growing into the team.

Palace boast Ebere Eze, an additional game-changer to take the burden off Wilfried Zaha, but their cautious play doesn’t always suit their attacking strengths.

Our prediction: Crystal Palace 1-2 West Ham
