Roy Hodgson’s Eagles are soaring ahead of the New Year and will welcome a West Ham United team that have only gone backwards so far in 2019/2020 to Selhurst Park on Boxing Day.
It was only around two-and-a-half months ago when these London rivals last faced off at London Stadium. Sebastien Haller gave the Hammers the lead just after half-time before Patrick van Aanholt levelled from the penalty spot and Jordan Ayew struck late on with the help of VAR to ensure all three points went back to the south west of the capital.
Manuel Pellegrini’s men will be out for revenge though and a third away win in the space of four games. They have the bonus of coming into this one after a weekend off due to Liverpool’s participation in the FIFA Club World Cup.
There’s been little to choose between the Irons and Palace over the years and there may not be on Boxing Day!
For the first time ever, a whole programme of Premier League Boxing Day fixtures will be broadcast live in the UK, with Crystal Palace vs West Ham and the other eight matches all available on Amazon Prime Video.
If you’re already a customer, you won’t have to do anything extra to be able to watch up to three games at the same time on compatible devices.
But don’t worry if you aren’t as only a 30-day free trial, cancellable at any stage, is needed and if you decide that you want to keep Prime Video after that, it will only set you back £7.99 per month or £79 for the year – with the additional benefit of free UK next day delivery on products from the Amazon website.
Perks of the groundbreaking coverage include 4K Ultra HD pictures, some of the biggest names in the punditry and commentary world to keep you company, a Goals Centre channel to watch goals as they go in and the option of listening to stadium noise as opposed to commentary.
If you’ve got an internet access device, a Smart TV, Fire TV, a games console, BT TV, Apple TV, Virgin’s V6 TV Box, Chromecast or TalkTalkTV, there’s nothing in your way!
