Hammers can extend Palace's poor run

West Ham's Dimitri Payet is out of the squad
1 of 1

Premier League
3pm Saturday

West Ham have taken a walk in the betting since news broke of Dimitri Payet’s self-imposed exclusion from selection but the impact on the team may have been overblown.

Payet’s mind has often seemed to be elsewhere and West Ham do better with 11 fully committed players.

Crystal Palace go to the London Stadium on a poor run (seven games without a win) and are without their best player Wilfried Zaha, who is at the Africa Cup of Nations.
