Roundup on form
Both Palace and West Ham lost their opening matches in the dying minutes against fellow Londoners Arsenal and Tottenham. Both teams played well and will want to get points on the board today against perceived beatable opponents.
However, history is on Crystal Palace's side as they did the double over West Ham last season and are unbeaten in their last 6 matches.
Last season this game would have been among the least desirable to watch among the neutrals due to the way the two teams play the game.
Having said that, under pressure from West Ham fans to play more expansive football, Sam Allardyce made noticeable changes to the way his team played against Tottenham.
However, with the amount of absentees Allardyce has, it is hard to imagine West Ham being cohesive enough in attack to worry a resolute Palace side.
Against Tottenham, West Ham were on top without ever really threatening. Meanwhile, against Arsenal, Palace were tight in defensive and were unlucky to lose the match after frustrating Arsenal.
