CRY vs WHU Dream11 Prediction for Crystal Palace vs West Ham Premier League Live Score Fantasy Football Tips & Dream11 Team


CRY vs WHU Dream11: Both teams enter this local derby in confident mood and a feisty affair is expected with each not afraid to take the fight to the opposition. Each of West Ham’s last two league matches have seen over 2.5 goals scored, with the same outcome occurring in Crystal Palace’s most recent four fixtures. When considering that both sides are expected to be missing first-choice defenders, attack is likely to rule the roost here as the two London-based clubs search for the three points. Crystal Palace boasts home advantage, whilst a West Ham win keeps them inside the top five so neither will want to settle for draw.
