Crystal Palace vs West Ham LIVE!

Palace came from behind to spoil West Ham’s hopes of moving further clear of the relegation zone with a 4-3 victory at Selhurst Park.

Jordan Ayew cancelled out Tomas Soucek’s early opener for the visitors before Wilfried Zaha marked his return with his seventh of the season and Jeffrey Schlupp added another. Antonio got his name on the scoresheet for the Hammers before the break and Eberechi Eze restored Palace’s advantage with a second-half spot kick.

Aguerd clawed one back to keep his side in it, but the hosts held on to make it 40 points for the season - and likely secure their own top-flight safety. Kick-off was delayed by 15 minutes to 12:45 due to issues with the turnstiles at Selhurst Park. Palace were bosted by by the return of Zaha, who last featured in Roy Hodgson’s return to the dugout on April 1 but sustained a groin injury in that victory.

14:18 , Giuseppe Muro

68 mins: Ings on for West Ham, replacing Paqueta.

GOAL! Crystal Palace 4-2 West Ham | Eberechi Eze 66’

14:12 , Giuseppe Muro

Eze sends Fabianski the wrong way! Palace are in full control again and it’s a long way back for West Ham from here.

14:11 , Giuseppe Muro

63 mins: Penalty to Palace! Minimal contact from Aguerd but he brings down Eze and Craig Pawson points to the spot! VAR have a look, but the penalty stands.

14:07 , Giuseppe Muro

60 mins: West Ham need to do something to change this because at the moment Palace look the more likely to score next.

14:05 , Giuseppe Muro

57 mins: Palace are pushing here. Benrahma has to flick behind a dangerous cross for a corner and Coufal is then booked for a foul on Zaha after brilliant play by the winger.

14:00 , Giuseppe Muro

53 mins: Curling shot from Olise and Fabianski is forced to tip over the bar. Olise early is full of confidence. From the corner, Palace work the ball to Zaha and he shots over.

Malik Ouzia at Selhurst Park

13:58 , Giuseppe Muro

I don’t want to get on Craig Pawson’s back too much - but I’m going to anyway. He’s having a shocker. Keeps missing fairly obvious fouls both ways, giving soft free-kicks, guessing. He looks miles off it and is fortunate there’s not been a properly crucial decision to make yet.

13:55 , Giuseppe Muro

48 mins: Schlupp shoots from the edge of the area put Fabianski saves comfortably. Straight down the other end a cross from Benrahma is cut out.

13:53 , Giuseppe Muro

46 mins: Back underway at Selhrust Park. Two changes for West Ham: Benrahma and Cresswell on for Fornals and Emerson.

13:44 , Giuseppe Muro

Five goals in 26 minutes, but this was arguably the highlight of the first half...!

Half-time: Crystal Palace 3-2 West Ham

13:37 , Giuseppe Muro

After a delayed kick-off, it has been worth the wait! Palace lead at the end of a pulsating first half.

13:36 , Giuseppe Muro

45+5 mins: Zaha wants a penalty after Coufal bundles him over inside the area! There’s a VAR check but no penalty. Drama right until the end of a pulsating first half.

13:34 , Giuseppe Muro

45+3 mins: Shot from Paqueta on the turn from the edge of the area but it flies over!

Malik Ouzia at Selhurst Park

13:33 , Giuseppe Muro

I think he's actually got most of them right but there've been three or four times in this first-half where Craig Pawson has, very visibly, completely guessed at a decision as he gives a free-kick for a foul by Emerson on Olise.

13:30 , Giuseppe Muro

41 mins: There’s no let up in intensity, both teams are going at it hammer and tongs.

13:25 , Giuseppe Muro

38 mins: This is turning into one of the games of the season! Zaha fancies another goal and fires into the side netting.

GOAL! Crystal Palace 3-2 West Ham | Michail Antonio 36’

13:22 , Giuseppe Muro

Lifeline for West Ham! Soucek flicks on a corner at the near post and Antonio reacts to nod it over the line at the back post. What a game!

Malik Ouzia at Selhurst Park

13:21 , Giuseppe Muro

That is a horrendous goal from West Ham’s point of view. Aguerd probably shouldn’t have played it to Soucek there but it is just abysmal from the Czech. Get rid of it or get your body across it. He just takes a heavy touch into space and is pretty much inviting Schlupp to nick it off him.

GOAL! Crystal Palace 3-1 West Ham | Jeffrey Schlupp 30’

13:17 , Giuseppe Muro

This is turning into a dream afternoon for Palace… and a nightmare one for West Ham!

Soucek loses the ball just outside the box as Schlupp robs him, goes one-on-one with Fabianski and slots it under the West Ham goalkeeper.

13:14 , Giuseppe Muro

After a good start, this is turning into a bad afternoon for West Ham. It looked like Zouma twisted his ankle earlier. Those fans who had to brave the queues will be glad they did. Hell of a start to this game. Olise’s assisted all three.

GOAL! Crystal Palace 2-1 West Ham | Wilfried Zaha 20’

13:08 , Giuseppe Muro

Palace have turned it around! It’s another brilliant goal from Palace and Zaha has a goal on his return after four games out. West Ham fail to clear and Zaha fires home at the back post. It’s raining goals at Selhurst Park!

13:07 , Giuseppe Muro

17 mins: Concern for Zouma, who was injured trying to stop that Ayew shot. It looks like the Palace man caught his ankle and that looks a painful one. Zouma is going to have to come off, which is a real blow for West Ham. Ogbonna is coming on to replace him.

GOAL! Crystal Palace 1-1 West Ham | Jordan Ayew 15’

13:01 , Giuseppe Muro

Immediate response from Palace!

Doucoure opens up the West Ham defence with a great pass, he slips in Ayew and first time he beats goalkeeper Fabianski at the near post.

West Ham’s set-piece threat comes good on the road for the second weekend in a row. What on Earth is Michael Olise doing?

That’s Tomas Soucek’s first goal since August. His goal threat was such a big part of what made him a success in the early part of his Hammers career but it’s pretty much disappeared out of his game.

GOAL! Crystal Palace 0-1 West Ham | Tomas Soucek 9’

12:55 , Giuseppe Muro

First chance for West Ham, first goal for West Ham!

The Hammers win a corner on the right that is floated in to the six-yard box and Palace fail to clear. Olise's header goes straight to Soucek and he fires into the roof of the net from close range.

Malik Ouzia at Selhurst Park

12:53 , Giuseppe Muro

A horrendously bitty start to this game but that has at least allowed the last few stragglers to work their way inside without missing anything. Palace asking the early questions.

12:50 , Giuseppe Muro

3 mins: Palace have started well here and are playing with confidence early on.

12:48 , Giuseppe Muro

1 mins: Palace have started with Olise on the right, Zaha on the left and Eze in a more withdrawn role through the middle.


12:46 , Giuseppe Muro

We’re underway in south London!

12:42 , Giuseppe Muro

A bit later than expected, but here come the players, and Selhurst Park is filling up.

12:38 , Giuseppe Muro

Premier League statement: “Kick-off for today’s Premier League match between Crystal Palace and West Ham United will be delayed by 15 minutes to 12.45pm, due to issues with the turnstiles.”

Malik Ouzia at Selhurst Park

12:34 , Giuseppe Muro

It's been seven minutes since that delay was announced and the Holmesdale Road end doesn't look any busier to me.

Presumably we have to kick off at 12.45pm regardless because otherwise we'll risk running into the 3pm blackout (which actually starts at 2:45pm).

Kick-off delayed

12:27 , Giuseppe Muro

Confirmation that kick-off has been delayed by 15 minuets until 12.45pm due to an issue with ticket card readers at Selhurst Park.

12:23 , Giuseppe Muro

Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish to BT Sport on their managerial search: “We don't want that noise in the background. Roy [Hodgson] is doing his work so we're obviously a lot happier than we were a few weeks ago.

“The job isn't done yet. Until we're safe we won't think about those kinds of things at the moment.

“West Ham are in good form and are a fantastic team. Virtually every team have got something to play for. It will be very tough and competitive.”

12:22 , Giuseppe Muro

Thousands of Palace fans are having problems getting in to Selhurst Park due to an issue with tickets. With just 10 minutes until kick-off, the ground is half-empty. No word of any delayed kick-off as yet though…

12:11 , Giuseppe Muro

Lucas Paqueta makes another start today as he bids to continue his recent good form

The Brazilian initially struggled after his club-record £51million move from Lyon last summer but David Moyes believes he is now getting used to the Premier League.

“We can say about many, many players that it takes time,” said Moyes.

“And I still think he has a good bit to go yet. I think there is much more to come from him. Much more improvement is needed from him. But I have to say, it is good he is getting some goals because it is just helping us with the situation we are in at present.”

David Moyes has settled on a first XI in recent weeks but West Ham have the busiest schedule of any of the sides battling the drop so no surprise at a couple of changes today. Pablo Fornals certainly worth a go.

11:54 , Giuseppe Muro

West Ham boss David Moyes has held talks with referees’ chief Howard Webb about the VAR controversy in their midweek 2-1 Premier League defeat by Liverpool.

Moyes accused the VAR of “disrespect” after West Ham were denied a late penalty when Thiago’s arm hit the ball as he challenged Danny Ings in the box.

The Hammers boss was convinced VAR Neil Swarbrick should have at least told on-field referee Chris Kavanagh to review the incident on the pitchside monitor.

But, speaking on Friday, Moyes refused to divulge whether he had received an apology from the PGMOL.

“I’ve spoken to Howard Webb and his team, but the conversation was private and it will remain that way,” he said.

England manager Gareth Southgate’s assistant Steve Holland has been spotted at Selhurst Park. Taking a look at Eberechi Eze?

A reminder from the news earlier this week that Crystal Palace have offered Wilfried Zaha a new four-year contract worth £200,000-a-week, in a final attempt to keep him at Selhurst Park.

Zaha is out of contract at the end of the season and there has been a growing feeling that Palace could lose the 30-year-old on a free transfer in the summer.

But Palace do not want to lose Zaha, who currently earns £130,000-a-week, and have offered him a deal that would make him the highest-paid player in their history.

Zaha has been reluctant to renew his contract due to his ambition of playing for a club capable of qualifying for the Champions League.

He is expected to reject a £9m-a-year offer from Saudi Arabia’s Al-Ittihad to continue pursuing his European dream.

Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham have previously shown an interest in the former Manchester United winger but most of his options are currently outside of England.

AC Milan, Roma and Marseille all want to exploit the contract dispute to tempt Zaha overseas.

11:38 , Giuseppe Muro

Captaining West Ham today, Declan Rice becomes only the sixth player to make 200 Premier League appearances for the Hammers.

The 24-year-old is the ninth youngest player overall to reach the milestone.

11:35 , Giuseppe Muro

So Wilfried Zaha returns to the Crystal Palace team for their game against West Ham. The 30-year-old has missed four games due to a groin injury but returned to training this week and comes straight back into the starting line-up.

For West Ham, Pablo Fornals comes in for Said Benrahma and Emerson comes in for Aaron Cresswell.

11:13 , Giuseppe Muro

- Palace won the reverse fixture 2-1 in November and can complete a League double over West Ham for only the third time.

- The Eagles have earned 10 points from five games since Roy Hodgson returned as manager and could register four Premier League wins in a calendar month for the first time since April 2014.

- Palace have only taken one point from their five London derbies at Selhurst Park this season and could suffer a club record fifth top-flight home defeat in a season against clubs from the capital.

- David Moyes has won all five Premier League away matches versus Crystal Palace. No manager has won six away games against a single opponent in the division without ever dropping points.

Head to head history and results

11:06 , Giuseppe Muro

Crystal Palace wins: 17

Draw: 23

West Ham wins: 25

10:58 , Giuseppe Muro

Asked if the number of points needed to survive in the Premier League this season could be higher than usual, Roy Hodgson said ahead of this game: "For teams at the bottom... they have to be looking at 10 points from five games. I have never taken 10 points from five games at any of the teams I have worked at."

But he added: "If I was one of those people paranoid about which points teams could get, I could probably go to bed quite happy at night by working out that it’s not going to be possible for them. It will be possibly for two of them of the four or five that there are, but not for all five of them."

10:49 , Giuseppe Muro

David Moyes is targeting “five or six” wins between now and the end of the season and the West Ham boss has backed Roy Hodgson’s assertion that 40 points should still be enough for Premier League survival.

“We are searching for five or six wins between now and the end of the season,” Moyes said. “That’s what we are doing, we are not just looking for one. We have got to give everything we can.

“We had a couple of good games away and if we can continue to build on that and keep our performance levels high, which they have been recently, it will give us every chance.

“I thought we did a lot of good things against Liverpool. We were competitive and we took a good side quite close in the end. We had a couple of decisions which did not quite go in our favour. Sometimes when you play those sorts of sides you need that, but on the night we didn’t get them.”


10:42 , Giuseppe Muro

The 40-point mark has traditionally been set as the target for safety but in the vast majority of Premier League seasons the bar has been much lower.

Palace’s current total of 37 points, three more than West Ham, would have been enough to guarantee survival in all-but one of the last ten seasons. The last team to get 40 points and still go down were the Irons, who were famously relegated despite getting 42 in 2002-03.


10:34 , Giuseppe Muro

Roy Hodgson has made Palace far more competitive of late but West Ham, even in losing to Liverpool, have shown an ever bigger improvement even if the results haven’t quite underlined it.

West Ham to 2-1.

West Ham team news

10:18 , Giuseppe Muro

David Moyes says West Ham have a couple of “knocks” to contend with ahead.

The Hammers have no significant new injury doubts, with Gianluca Scamacca the only long-term absentee, but Moyes may still be forced to tinker with his team following the midweek defeat to Liverpool.

“In the main we are okay,” Moyes said. “Scamacca is the one player who is not available. People have picked up some knocks in midweek but hopefully, it will be a similar squad.”

Pablo Fornals is pushing for a start after his goalscoring cameo in last Sunday’s 4-0 win at Bournemouth, while left-back Emerson Palmieri could come in for Aaron Cresswell should Moyes choose to shuffle his pack.

Crystal Palace team news

10:11 , Giuseppe Muro

Palace are boosted by the return of Wilfried Zaha after four games out with a groin injury.

“Wilf Zaha has trained for a few days this week so we can add him to the squad, which is good,” said Roy Hodgson.

“We’re delighted to see him back on the training field doing the sessions and exercises we’ve been doing because, for the last couple of weeks, we’ve seen him running around, trying to bring his fitness up to the level which will enable him to take part in a Premier League match.

“The need in our next five matches is to give good performances, and of course we don’t want to lose our best players going into them. I’m certain he’ll give everyone a boost and make our team stronger, due to the fact he’s now back with us, able to play.”

Joachim Andersen is fit, having been substituted at half-time in the midweek defeat at Wolves.
