Crystal Palace vs West Ham - LIVE!

West Ham moved into the Premier League top four after Tomas Soucek's double helped them to a 3-2 victory at London rivals Crystal Palace on Tuesday.

Wilfried Zaha gave Palace the perfect start with a goal after two minutes at a drizzly Selhurst Park but the visitors hit back impressively to claim a fourth straight league victory.

Czech Soucek headed the equaliser after nine minutes and put his side in front after 25 minutes in a dominant first half from the Hammers for whom Michail Antonio twice struck the post.

Craig Dawson's header gave West Ham breathing space midway through the second half and Palace could not respond until deep into stoppage time when Michy Batshuayi struck a consolation.

West Ham moved above Everton, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool into fourth place with 35 points from 20 games although their nearest rivals all have games in hand.

Palace have now won once in their last seven league games and remain in 13th spot on 23 points.
