Key match stats (supplied by Opta)

Crystal Palace have lost their last three home games against West Ham in league competition, their longest losing run versus the Hammers on home soil.

West Ham are unbeaten in the Premier League versus Crystal Palace under Slaven Bilic (W3 D1 L0).

Crystal Palace have won only seven of their 23 Premier League home games since the start of 2016-17 (W7 D2 L14), although the last was against the reigning champions Chelsea.

Palace have won just three points from their opening nine Premier League games this season. In 2013-14, they won three points in their first 10 games and still finished the season in 11th position.

Since Slaven Bilic was appointed as West Ham manager in the summer of 2015, West Ham have won as many games that they have lost in the Premier League (30) and have collected 115 points – more than Stoke, Watford, West Brom, Swansea, Bournemouth and Crystal Palace from the same number of games (85).
