Competition: Premier League
Market: Crystal Palace and West Ham
Odds: 23/10 @ William Hill
Crystal Palace welcome the visit of London rivals West Ham United to Selhurst Park this weekend, with both sides in fine form in the Premier League which should make for a competitive affair. Just one point separates the two sides in the table after eight games, and the winner on Saturday could well finish the weekend in the top-two depending on other result.
Palace are fourth in the table, coming off the back of consecutive wins in the division against Watford and West Bromwich Albion. The Eagles have boast the joint best defence in the league, but their attacking style can often see them susceptible to counter attacks from pacey sides.
Nevertheless, things are going well early on this season, with Alan Pardew’s men having already beaten defending champions Chelsea among others, so West Ham will be very wary of their in-form opposition. United are no slouches either, however, with Slaven Bilic’s side having dispatched of Liverpool and Manchester City in recent weeks.
With two sides in fine form and so far showcasing real attacking prowess at times, this weekend’s clash at Selhurst Park could be a high-scoring affair. Both sides would settle for a share of the spoils rather than risk losing the game, and William Hill are giving odds of 23/10 for Palace and West Ham to play out a stalemate.
