Team News: West Ham United name unchanged team for Crystal Palace

Michail Antonio


West Ham United name an unchanged team for the third Premier League game in a row for this afternoon’s London derby against Crystal Palace.

The Hammers are aiming to maintain their 100 per cent start to the new season and keep their place at the head of the table.

The in-form Michail Antonio, with three goals and two assists already this season, leads the line up-front, with his fellow goalscorers from Monday’s win over Leicester City – Pablo Fornals and Saïd Benrahma, supporting him alongside Jarrod Bowen.

The rest of the team has a familiar look to it, with Declan Rice and Tomáš Souček anchoring the midfield, and Vladimír Coufal, Craig Dawson, Angelo Ogbonna and Aaron Cresswell protecting Łukasz Fabiański in goal.

West Ham United: Fabiański, Coufal, Dawson, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Rice (c), Souček, Bowen, Fornals, Benrahma, Antonio
Subs: Areola, Baptiste, Fredericks, Johnson, Diop, Coventry, Noble, Lanzini, Yarmolenko

Crystal Palace: Guaita, Ward, Guéhi, Andersen, Mitchell, Kouyaté, McArthur (c), Zaha, Gallagher, Ayew, Benteke
Subs: Butland, Tomkins, Riedewald, Schlupp, Kelly, Hannam, Street, Rak-Sakyi, Mateta

Referee: Stuart Attwell
