Crystal Palace can win back-to-back games for the first time since Nov. 6 if it can topple West Ham United at Selhurst Park on Saturday (Watch live at 12:30pm ET Saturday on USA Network and online via NBCSports.com).
Palace drew the Irons in the first meeting between the London derby rivals on Aug. 28 when Conor Gallagher, a loanee from a third London club Chelsea, snared two equalizers in West London.
West Ham wants to make it two-straight wins after ending a three-match winless run with a 4-1 win at Watford on Dec. 28, just their second win from eight following a sterling 11-match start to the season saw David Moyes men posted up in the top four.

The Wilfried Zaha absence looms large over this one and will request plenty from Palace’s other playmakers. The uncertain statuses of Conor Gallagher, Eberechi Eze, and Christian Benteke make it hard to pick Palace here, but if they’re good to go then this prediction will look foolish (even though the Irons are missing Kurt Zouma and Declan Rice). Palace 1-2 West Ham.
