West Ham United look to take a step closer to Premier League survival as they face Crystal Palace in the Premier League this weekend.
Crystal Palace currently sit 12th in the Premier League with nine wins, ten draws fourteen losses from thirty-three games this season.
It's ultimately been a successful season for The Eagles who now find themselves on the verge of securing Premier League survival since the appointment of Roy Hodgson.
They need one more win to make sure but after hitting thirty-seven points following a run of three wins and a draw in four games they now need only a few more points to secure Premier League football for another year.
They are coming into this game off the back off a defeat, however, having failed to a 2-0 defeat at Wolverhampton Wanderers last time out, their first loss since Roy Hodgson retook the reigns at the club.
However, they didn't play badly at all and that loss was likely just a blip in what should still turn out to be a positive end to the season.
They've only played twice at Selhurst Park since Hodgson's reappointment and have taken four points from those games so they will fancy themselves to get back to winning ways here.
Eberechi Eze again proved a nuisance at Molineux and has been a consistent performer under Roy Hodgson, and he may be hoping to force his way into England contention for the fixtures in June in these last five games.
Either way, Palace should not fall to defeat here in what should be a competitive match.
West Ham United currently sit 14th in the Premier League with nine wins, seven draws and sixteen losses from thirty-two games this season.
The Hammers have been a shadow of themselves this season under David Moyes after such a successful campaign last time out, but they look to have taken big strides in regaining their step in recent weeks having delivered a number of impressive performances.
They enter this game having won two, drawn two and lost one of their last five matches - having taken a point off leaders Arsenal in that time - with the wins coming by a combined scoreline of 8-1.
Their most recent game saw them fall to a 1-2 defeat at home to Liverpool in a game they will be disappointed to have lost and will feel their performance warranted more.
They will be mightily encouraged by their away form heading into this game having won three and drawn one of their last four games on the road.
All in all, The Hammers should make this one a very competitive affair in a game that feels like it could see both sides cancelling each other out.
For our Crystal Palace vs. West Ham prediction, we're going for a 1-1 draw.
