Wilfried Zaha will hope his strong run of individual form can inspire the team around him during an important festive period. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch West Ham v Crystal Palace on TV and online.

West Ham v Crystal Palace team news

West Ham: Arthur Masuaku and Michail Antonio are the only worries for West Ham, with neither fit to play here.

However, Moyes won't be too concerned as his current favoured XI has been tearing it up in the Premier League for the most part this season.

Crystal Palace: Regular long-term absentees Connor Wickham, Martin Kelly, Wayne Hennessey and Nathan Ferguson remain in the physio room, but Palace have no further worries.

Eberechi Eze came off during the Spurs game as the Eagles seek to manage his game time and keep him fresh to extract as many appearances as possible from him over Christmas.

Our prediction: West Ham v Crystal Palace

West Ham have performed brilliantly against teams below them in the table, and that is the No.1 method for keeping the others under their feet.

Fulham, Sheffield United, Aston Villa and Leeds have all fallen under the Hammers in recent weeks, and while Crystal Palace represent a more stern test for Moyes' attackers with their compact style, the likes of Pablo Fornals and Jarrod Bowen should be able to find a way through.

Palace will be keen to build on their draw with Spurs, but their reluctance to sacrifice defensive stability for attacking threat may prove a stumbling block against teams they should be trying to beat.

Our prediction: West Ham 2-0 Crystal Palace
