Predicted West Ham lineup vs Crystal Palace

West Ham return to Premier League action on Sunday as they host Crystal Palace at the London Stadium, in what is the first of three home games to look forward to before the World Cup break.

David Moyes’ side made it six wins from six in the Europa Conference League group stage in midweek as they dispatched FCSB 3-0, with the fringe players and youngsters who impressed in that game no doubt keen to keep their place against the Eagles.

Will West Ham win today?





However, it seems highly likely that the Hammers will revert to a team similar to the one that was bested by Manchester United last weekend, as they take on Patrick Vieira’s side.

Here is how Football FanCast expects the Irons to lineup on Sunday, with nine changes from the team that started in Romania in midweek.

Areola, Kehrer, Dawson, Zouma, Cresswell, Rice, Soucek, Benrahma, Fornals, Bowen, Scamacca (4-2-3-1)

Lukasz Fabianski remains a doubt in between the sticks after he picked up a knock at Old Trafford last week, so Alphonse Areola earns a rare start in goal.

It is all change in defence as Moyes reverts to a four at the back, with Thilo Kehrer and Aaron Cresswell coming in at full-back as Vladimir Coufal and Ollie Scarles drop to the bench.

Craig Dawson and Kurt Zouma resume their partnership in the heart of the back four, after Moyes confirmed that it was too soon for Nayef Aguerd to feature in the Premier League.

Tomas Soucek and Declan Rice seem almost certain to start together in midfield, so Conor Coventry and Manuel Lanzini drop out.

How many points did West Ham end the Premier League season with?

Said Benrahma and Jarrod Bowen come into the attacking midfield spots, with the “incredible” – in the words of Russell Martin – Flynn Downes losing his place, while Pablo Fornals deserves to start after his brace against FCSB.

Finally, despite a bright display up top, it seems unlikely that Divin Mubama will keep his place in the side, so Gianluca Scamacca comes in as his replacement in attack.
