Crystal Palace starting line-up and substitutes:

West Ham welcome Crystal Palace to the London Stadium in the Premier League today.

And Manuel Lanzini, who joined the east London side for £10.8 million three years ago (Express) returns to the starting XI.

 

The Hammers have made a fine start to their Premier League campaign, and they currently sit in fifth spot in the table, having taken 12 points from their opening seven games.

The Eagles, meanwhile, have been in decent form too, and they are just one point behind today’s opponents.

Many are expecting West Ham to make a sustained push for the top six this season. And a win over Palace today would put them in a really strong position heading into the second international break of the season.

The south London outfit will represent a stern test for Manuel Pellegrini’s side, however.

A win for either side would see them jump inside the top four today.

Both teams have strong, pacy frontlines, so this should be a cracker of a game.

The game kicks of at 17:30 and can be seen exclusively live on Sky Sports.
