Crystal Palace’s Odsonne Edouard said it was important for his side to beat the Saints at Selhurst Park as that is the last home game Palace have until after the World Cup. Speaking to Palace’s official website after the match, Edouard said: “It’s very, very long! For this it was important to win in front of the fans because the next game is in two months, so it was important to win.”
David Moyes’ side, however, will look to reverse their fortunes after losing 1-0 to Manchester United at Old Trafford. Marcus Rashford netted the only goal for the Red Devils as he continues to work towards a potential spot in the World Cup squad.
As both sides prepare for their upcoming fixture, they will also be looking ahead to the January transfer window and may face each other in a more surprising battle with both sides reportedly scouting Partick Thistle’s Aiden McGinlay. Palace are furthering their investment in youth talent with Major League Soccer outfit Real Salt Lake confirming Fernando Delgado and Gain Beavers would be heading for a trial period at the Eagles.

David Moyes has been handed fresh injury concerns ahead of the Hammers’ fixture against Crystal Palace. Goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski is reportedly a doubt for this weekend’s fixture after suffering a knock in their game last weekend against Manchester United. A source has revealed to Claret and Hugh that while the setback is not thought to be overly serious, he’s by no means a certainty to feature.
Ahead of their game against Southampton, Patrick Vieira said there were no fresh injury concerns and there do not appear to be anymore following their win over the Saints.
