West Ham United v Crystal Palace

While West Ham have an eye on European football, Crystal Palace are desperate to move away from the relegation zone in their encounter on Saturday.

The Hammers host Palace looking to avoid a third consecutive loss to the opposition at Upton Park.

Slaven Bilic’s in-form side enter the clash fifth in the table with 50 points from 30 Premier League games.

The hosts will be without Sam Byram, who is not match fit, while James Collins is out with a hamstring injury.

Following a three-match winning streak last month, the east Londoners will be looking to bounce back after a loss and a draw in their last two games.

The Eagles, meanwhile, have had a nightmare 2016 where they are winless in their last 13 enccounters.

At New Year’s Eve they were fifth in the standinsgs, but currently just seven points above the relegation zone.

Emmanuel Adebayor, Brede Hangeland, Yohan Cabaye and Mile Jedinak are doubtful for the visitors.
