Premier League football tips: West Ham v Crystal Palace 16 12 20
We’ve brought together three Hammers fans from the We Are West Ham podcast who will provide #BetYourWay football tips for every West Ham game in the Premier League this season in an attempt to win money for a charity that is close to their hearts.
The podcast is run by three Hammers fans: Will Pugh, James Jones and Tom Edwards.
We will place a £50 bet on each of their selections, with all profits donated to the charity of their choice. This year, the lads will be donating to Isla’s Fight, DT38 and Bobby Moore Fund.
The We Are West Ham podcast was born out of a live Hammers radio show that James Jones and Will Pugh used to broadcast to the nation.
New boy Tom Edwards joined the team last season as We Are West Ham continue to deliver engaging features, well-connected journalists, and famous guests from East London and beyond. Come on you Irons.
This evening, West Ham host Crystal Palace, who have a good recent record at the London Stadium. However, the boys are confident that the Hammers will get a result and the general consensus is that there will be goals.
Will Pugh: Both teams to score, over 2.5 goals, Fabian Balbuena to score anytime
Will says: “I think both teams scoring will be the vital element of this game. Both sides will have plenty of chances. Balbuena is a real attacking threat a set-pieces, too.”
James Jones: West Ham to win 2-0, Said Benrahma to score anytime, a penalty to be awarded
James says: “I’ve hardly kept it simple for tonight but we’re in good form, we’re grinding out victories and I think Benrahma is type of player to be able to run at Palace’s defence with good success.”
Tom Edwards: West Ham to win, both teams to score, Sebastien Haller to score anytime
Tom says: “Well I’ve kept it more simple than Jonesy! It’ll be a different test to Leeds, but a test I feel we can overcome. Palace have been in-and-out this season and are beatable but they do have good spells in games. With Zaha on the pitch, he can create something out of nothing for them. Haller can be a nuisance for defences as a No. 9, so I’m hoping he can bag one tonight.”
