West Ham vs Crystal Palace - LIVE!

Another London derby lies in store during the early stages of this new Premier League season as two sides that have made contrasting starts to the campaign go head to head.

West Ham are absolutely flying having carried over the momentum from their excellent 2020/21 campaign, with a brilliant comeback at Newcastle on opening weekend followed by a 4-1 demolition of Leicester that saw Michail Antonio become the club’s all-time leading Premier League goalscorer.

Such an impressive run saw the Hammers head into the third round of fixtures sitting at the summit of the top-flight for the first time in 15 years and only the second time ever.

David Moyes’ side will be favourites to keep the good times rolling against a Crystal Palace team that have made a sluggish beginning to life under Patrick Vieira.

After following a heavy loss at Chelsea with a stalemate against Brentford and Carabao Cup defeat by Watford, the Eagles are yet to win or even score a single goal under Roy Hodgson’s high-profile successor.

Will their fortunes change today?

Final score 2-2

17:03 , Daniel Gallan

Full time

2-2: In the end, that’s a point won for Palace more than either side dropping two. Perhaps David Moyes will be annoyed that his side couldn’t maintain the lead they had earned twice, but you’d have to be particularly one-eyed to deny Crystal Palace had done enough in the last half hour to take a point back to South London. A Conor Gallagher brace - one scrappy, one majestic - cancelled out impressive goals from Pablo Fornels and Michail Antonio.

An entertaining game and a first point for Palace boss Patrick Vieira.

And it should have been!

16:51 , Daniel Gallan

92mins: Crystal Palace should have their third goal and three points. But Marc Guehi can’t keep his header down. What a miss! How costly could that be in a few months’ time?

Declan Rice booked

16:50 , Daniel Gallan

91mins: We’re in added time and only just seen the first yellow. It’s given to Declan Rice for a sloppy slide tackle. It’s a great opportunity for Palace to put one on the box and snatch a winner.

Palace respond with a change of their own

16:49 , Daniel Gallan

88mins: James McArthur’s day is done as Jeffrey Schlupp comes on to add some attacking impetus.

Fornals off as Hammers look for winner

16:46 , Daniel Gallan

87mins: Goalscorer Pablo Fornals makes way for the Ukranian Andriy Yarmolenko who is in the thick of it immediately, firing high and over the bar from his favoured left boot.

Both sides easing up slightly

16:40 , Daniel Gallan

78mins: And who can blame them after that breathless start to the second half. This feels more like a deep inhale before a frenetic crescendo. Let’s hope for more goals as Manuel Lanzini comes on for Jarrod Bowen. Palace yet to make a change.

GOAL! Gallagher has his second

16:30 , Daniel Gallan

GOAL!

70mins: What is going on? West Ham regained the lead and held it for a minute before Conor Gallagher produces a delicious piece of skill inside the box. He shapes to shoot with his left, drags it back across his body and arrows one with his right into the bottom corner. What a game we have here!

GOAL! Antonio hammers home!

16:28 , Daniel Gallan

GOAL!

69mins: Pick that one out! Just as Palace looked like they’d got themselves back in the game, Michail Antonio thunders one into the net from inside the box.

Jack at the London Stadium

16:19 , Daniel Gallan

60mins: “Finally Palace have a goal under Vieira! Gallagher doing what no one in a Palace shirt has done so far this afternoon and getting into a dangerous position, catching the West Ham defenders out. Challenge for the hosts now, they had been able to get a lead without really getting going.”

GOAL! Palace equalise

16:18 , Daniel Gallan

GOAL! 1-1

59mins: Where’s that come from? A seemingly innocuous dink into the mix from the edge of the left is nudged by Christian Benteke and falls to Conor Gallagher who scruffs it in. It’s not pretty but Palace have their first goal of the campaign.

Jack’s not loving what he’s seeing from the visitors

16:14 , Daniel Gallan

55mins: “This is really quite poor from Palace. No real idea of how they want to be playing or where they can hurt West Ham. Their rare moments on the ball are all rather hopeful and looking at the bench there’s not much Vieira can do to change that.”

West Ham making it look easy

16:10 , Daniel Gallan

50mins: Said Benrahma scuffs his first-time shot straight at Vincente Guaita from just inside the box, but it is worrying signs for Palace who just can’t seem to play the ball out. Is it too early to worry about Patrick Vieira’s tactics?

All eyes on Palace

16:06 , Daniel Gallan

45mins: We’re back! And Crystal Palace have it all to do as they’ve been outthought and outfought in the opening 45 minutes. Can they find a way back in this?

Hammers ahead at half-time

15:49 , Daniel Gallan

Half-time: As Jack says: “A moment of magic football has West Ham ahead at the break. Palace have had very little say on this game and are allowing their hosts to dominate. They need to step up and get on the ball more after the break.”

Jacks’ impressed with that one!

15:42 , Daniel Gallan

40mins: “What a move from West Ham. Quick thinking from both Antonio and Fornals to bamboozle the Palace defenders and they take a deserved lead having finally clicked in the final third. Fornals has wanted to add goals this season and now has two in two.”

GOAL! Fornals caps off superb move

15:42 , Daniel Gallan

GOAL!

39mins: That is a delicious move. Michail Antonio found his way in the box and looked like he’d pull the trigger. But a drop of the shoulder and perfectly weighted pass back across the face of the goal put it on a plate for Pablo Fornals who scores for the second game in a row. It’s another assist for the big man up front and the Hammers have a deserving lead.

Jack’s asking for more from the home side

15:34 , Daniel Gallan

33mins: “West Ham getting into good positions and need to start taking advantage of them. A poor cross from Coufal before a loose touch from Antonio after a nice run. Palace won’t stay this passive all afternoon so time to make it count.”

West Ham getting close

15:29 , Daniel Gallan

27mins: Vladimir Caufal is causing trouble down the right with Michail Antonio a constant menace in the box. A few crosses have resulted in chaos in the Palace area and several shots on the edge of the box have been blocked. Vincente Guaita is still unchallenged though.

Jack Rosser at the London Stadium

15:26 , Daniel Gallan

24mins: “A funny game so far. West Ham will be far happier with how it is going but still aren’t quite in their flow. Every chance seems to be created by a Palace mistake.”

Tight and tense opening

15:17 , Daniel Gallan

15mins: Both sides have just about shared the ball evenly though neither have managed a shot at goal after a quarter of an hour.

Jack Rosser at London Stadium

15:10 , Daniel Gallan

8mins: “West Ham on top in the opening stages of this London derby, which would have suited the counter-attacking Palace of old but it might not be what Vieira wants to see.”

Hammers looking sharp

15:06 , Daniel Gallan

5mins: It’s early doors, but the home side have started brightly with skipper Declan Rice getting himself involved.

Palace boss starting to feel the heat

14:40 , Daniel Gallan

Another defeat here, and Patrick Vieira will be forced to answer difficult questions.

Antonio in fine form

14:30 , Daniel Gallan

The man leading the Hammers’ line today is in good nick. Michail Antonio has been involved in 10 goals in his last nine Premier League appearances, scoring six and assisting four of them.

James McArthur returns to skipper the Eagles

14:08 , Daniel Gallan

4-3-3: Vincente Guaita, Joel Ward, Tyrick Mitchell, Marc Guehi, Joachim Andersen, Cheikhou Kouyate, James McArthur (c), Conor Gallagher, Jordan Ayew, Wilfried Zaha, Christian Benteke

Substitutes: Jeffrey Schlupp, Jairo Riedewald, Jesurun Rak-Sakyi, Jack Butland, Jean-Philippe Mateta, Robert Street, James Tomkins, Martin Kelly, Reece Hannam

West Ham unchanged in search of three wins in a row

14:05 , Daniel Gallan

4-2-3-1: Lukasz Fabianksi, Aaron Cresswell, Vladimir Caufal, Craig Dawson, Angelo Ogbonna, Pablo Fornals, Jarrod Bowen, Said Benrahma, Tomas Soucek, Declan Rice (c), Michael Antonio

Substitutes: Manuel Lanzini, Mark Noble, Conor Coventry, Alphonse Areola, Andriy Yarmolenko, Issa Diop, Ryan Fredericks, Ben Johnson, Jamal Baptiste

Expect goals today

13:44 , Daniel Gallan

In the 20 Premier League meetings between the two clubs, not one has ended goalless. What’s more, there have been some classics like the 3-3 draw in May 1998, the 3-2 win for West Ham in December 2018 and the win for the Hammers by the same score in January this year.

Palace out to rewrite the script

13:27 , Daniel Gallan

The visitors today will want to forget about the struggles of the last campaign and set things right today. West Ham took four points off Crystal Palace last season, drawing 1-1 at London Stadium in December, before winning 3-2 at Selhurst Park late the following month.

The former game was illuminated by Sébastien Haller’s sensational overhead kick.

West Ham on the cusp of something special

13:09 , Daniel Gallan

A win today wouldn’t place West Ham into the upper echelons of elite European football, but this would be an accomplishment worth celebrating and a testament to the commendable job done by David Moyes.

Hammers primed to bludgeon the Eagles

12:59 , Daniel Gallan

It’s another tantalising London derby as East takes on South with with those in claret and blue primed to maintain their perfect start to the season.

In our preview, we gazed into the crystal ball and envisioned 2-0 win for West Ham. That would make it three Premier League games in a row without a goal for new Palace boss Patrick Vieira. Not that the serial-winning Frenchman will pay us any mind. No doubt he’ll be encouraging his team forward.
