Crystal Palace vs West Ham forecast for January 1, 2022

One of the first matches of the new 2022 will be the meeting between Crystal Palace and West Ham. Hammers this season again claim to get into European cups.

The Crystal Palace – West Ham football match will kick off on January 1, 2022 at 20:30 Moscow time.

Crystal Palace: before the match

Patrick Viera’s team has improved qualitatively in the new season. Crystal Palace have ceased to be whipping boys and are now capable of taking points even from the top teams of the English Championship. The new head coach managed to set up the eagles’ attack. Crystal Palace has scored 27 goals – more than any other team save for the big six and Leicester.

However, along with this, an obvious problem arose – the KP began to miss a lot. 27 goals conceded is one of the worst indicators of the championship. But what is remarkable here is the other. The eagles are missing more than they should. According to the xGA metric, they should have conceded almost 7 fewer goals – this is a disastrous figure for a goalkeeper.

The coronavirus pandemic has practically bypassed Crystal Palace, however, there are still some losses. Eberiche Eze will definitely miss the match with West Ham. James MacArthur also dropped out due to muscle injury. From the positive, Jeffy Schlupp can be distinguished. The midfielder got in good shape, began to appear regularly in the squad, and in the last match he scored his second goal this season.

West Ham: before the match

David Moyes’ team started this season very well. However, many football experts have noticed that hammers play so well only because of their excellent physical condition. But as soon as the clubs start playing regularly 2-3 matches a week, West Ham will start to have problems.

And so it happened, with the onset of December, West Ham managed to win only two victories in the Premier League matches. The first win was over a weakened Chelsea before the schedule had yet to wear out Moyes’ squad. The second is over Watford, who weaves at the end of the standings. The helplessness of the hammer was shown most clearly in the dereuis against the Arsenal. Mikel Arteta’s team annihilated the Moyes team, beating in all respects:

I didn’t like our match. We defended well, our goalkeeper was at his best today, but in general I did not see the prerequisites for the team to win. It was clearly not our night – perhaps now we are experiencing not the best moment, while Arsenal has a white streak.

I am very unhappy with the second conceded goal and how easily we made it possible to score. We looked good after sending off, but these balls must not be conceded

On the positive side, one can single out the return of Declan Rice, who was serving a suspension for overdoing yellow cards.
