West Ham vs Crystal Palace
West Ham played with a reshuffled team on weekend FA Cup match and loose against Wigan, anyway only four players were not usual starters and they played the almost whole second half in ten men, so hosts should be in worst form then the opponent that had ten day of rest.
More, Hammers have eleven players unavailable, banned Masuaku ( def.14+5) is suspended, Obiang ( midf.18+2 2g) injuried himself in FA Cup game, topscorer Arnautovic ( 6g), Carroll ( att.7+5 2g), Lanzini (midf.16+2 3g), Michail Antonio(midf.13+2 1g), Reid ( def.16), Fernandes ( midf.5+2) and Fonte ( def.8) are all out. Sakho ( att. 14sub 2g) gone to Rennes in last days and Noble ( midf.14+1 2g) and Ayew ( att.9 3g) are doubtful.
Palace has some problem, too with Ruben Loftus-Cheek ( midf.15+1 1g), Andros Townsend ( midf.21+1 1g), Jeffrey Schlupp ( def.18+1 ), Scott Dann ( def.16+1 1g), Jason Puncheon ( midf.6+4) all out.
So, guests miss some strating defender, but Hammers are without the authors of at least 17 of their 30g scored in Premier.
More, also if hammers have only one defeat in last nine rounds, Palace improved a lot after a disastrous strat of season and has only two def eats ( both against Arsenal) in last 13 rounds.
Considering that also most part of usual starters available for West Ham should be more tired, Palacer should be able to gain at least a draw here
