Our football match prediction:
West Ham United will be looking to make amends for back-to-back defeats to the likes of Leicester City and Manchester United when they welcome Crystal Palace at their London Stadium. The ten-man Hammers were not capable of matching the in-form Red Devils, but we predict that they will grab something from Saturday’s football match against Palace. Sofiane Feghouli misses the match through suspension, but coach Slaven Bilic has a number of top-class players to choose from and he will surely field the best possible side against Eagles. Crystal Palace have yet to record a win under new coach Sam Allardyce and they head into the game following a heart-breaking loss to Swansea City. The Eagles are low on confidence at the moment and the relegation strugglers are likely to return home empty-handed. When the two teams met in London earlier this season West Ham United emerged triumphant, with Manuel Lanzini scoring the winner for Slaven Bilic’s troops.
Highlighted Player (Payet):
Dimitri Payet was born in Saint-Pierre, Reunion on 29 March 1987, but he joined Le Havre’s famous youth academy in 1999 and has since enjoyed a meteoric rise. The attacking midfielder started his professional career at Nantes, but top French clubs soon started casting admiring glances his way and he went on to represent Saint Etienne, Lille and Marseille, becoming one of Ligue 1’s leading footballers. However, it was the move to West Ham that placed Payet on the map as the Frenchman enjoyed a brilliant start to his career in England, making the PFA Player of the Year Shortlist. Some excellent performances in the Premier League persuaded France coach Didier Deschamps to reinstate Payet into his starting line-up and the midfielder paid the coach back with some scintillating displays on international stage. Excellent with the ball at his feet and very dangerous from set pieces, Payet quickly established himself as one of Europe’s top midfielders, with the likes of Barcelona, Arsenal and other top clubs now after his signature.
