Strong 4-2-3-1 line-up: Predicted West Ham side to play Palace

Here is how we predict West Ham United and Crystal Palace will line up this weekend:

To be played on Saturday 2nd April 2016 at 14:00. Venue: Boleyn Ground, London

Odds: West Ham 10/11, Draw 5/2, C. Palace 3/1

West Ham United welcome Crystal Palace to Upton Park on Saturday as both sides return to domestic matters following the latest international break.

The Hammers are currently fifth in the Premier League table, level on points with sixth-placed Manchester United and only one point behind Manchester City.

The Blues occupy the final Champions League qualifying spot as things stand and West Ham will know they have a great chance of leap-frogging City if they maintain their own great form.

In contrast Palace are down in 16th place and while they are seven points clear of the relegation zone with only seven matches remaining they will be keen to get another couple of wins on the board sooner rather than later.

In early team news, West Ham have minor doubts regarding Sam Byram, James Collins and James Tomkins, but all three are rated at 75 per cent to be ready if called upon.

As for Palace, their manager Alan Pardew is without James McArthur, Connor Wickham and Marouane Chamakh while Mile Jedinak is a minor doubt with a knock.
