Crystal Palace take on West Ham United on Saturday evening as a new calendar year of Premier League gets underway.

At the halfway point the Hammers are flying, sitting just outside the top four as they battle Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United for a place in next season’s Champions league.

Manager David Moyes is giving Irons fans a season to remember in the Europa League, too, but an injury crisis in defence threatens their progress.

Palace, on the other hand, are enjoying a solid if unspectacular campaign so far, with on-loan Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher the standout performer and top scorer for a side being remoulded by Patrick Vieira after four years under the stewardship of Roy Hodgson.

Vieira is set to miss this fixture, as he did the Eagles’ last against Spurs, owing to Covid-19.

Here is everything you need to know ahead of kick-off.

The match kicks off on Saturday 1 January at 5.30pm GMT.
