CRY vs WHU Dream11 : West Ham look to move into the top 4 today when they entertain an agonising Crystal Palace side
For West Ham, the Premier League 2019-20 season began as a campaign which could have so easily unravelled after being battered by Manchester City in their league opener. However, ever since then, the side have done extremely well to thrive to sit in fifth place ahead of gameweek 8 of the marquee league.
The fortitude and valour shown by the side has been one which deserves all the laurels with the side finally managing to click together as a unit, seeing their full set of myriad performers step up to the mantle in tandem to unlock the true potential of the side. Being underachievers for way too long in the league now, this looks to be the season where West Ham United can finally showcase their true tenacious nature as a side and show why they are contenders for a Europa League spot.
They were halted to a 2-2 draw by Bournemouth in the previous match but as they take on Crystal Palace today, the home side will be quietly confident of pulling off the entire three points from this one. Crystal Palace managed to defeat Norwich City in their bygone clash but it was more so a tepid performance by their opponents than their own guile and trickery which placed them in the narrative, one they won’t be fortunate to taste against West Ham come today.
Heading into this match as overwhelming favourites, this looks set to be a fixture which should swing West Ham’s way with their attack and defence both encapsulating in unison to deliver complete performances. With Crystal Palace been horrid away from home, a side too easy to unravel, this looks like a clash which West Ham should cruise to and make massive strides to climb into the top 4 today.

CRY vs WHU Dream11 Goal-Keeper
With West ham looking so menacing and formidable infront of gaol at the moment, Crystal Palace are going to face an absolute carnage today. It makes their goal-keeper, Vincent Guaita a good option for this one with the shot stopper set to pull off a good number of saves in this one.
CRY vs WHU Dream11 Defenders
We continue to peel off picks from the home side in our defence, getting in the formidable partnership of Ryan Fredericks and Issa Diop. Much of the side’s resurgence has come down to these two, an indomitable partnership which has dived into its repertoire of skills to imbed in responsible and disciplined performances to up the level of defending for the side and become mainstays in their backline.
The one pick from Crystal Palace for us here as we finally get in the first player from their side in our Dream 11 side in the form of CB Martin Kelly.
CRY vs WHU Dream11 Midfielders
We begin with Andriy Yarmolenko from the home side, with the new signing having scored two goals on the bounce for his, taking centrestage. He’s the epitome of their attacking soirees at the moment, someone whose imperious quality has been the missing link to the side crafting together some scrumptious attacking layups and we envisage him adding to that tally today.
Felipe Anderson and Carlos Moreno-Sanchez come in as well from us while we are choosing Wilfred Zaha and Victor Camarasa from the opposing side today.
CRY vs WHU Dream11 Strikers
With three goals till now, West Ham’s striker, Sebastian Haller is chosen by us along with Albian Ajeti. Ajeti should only come on as a substitute but he’ll find a place in the side when Crystal Palace are frayed and failing, a period when he can easily register a goal or assist.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Yarmolenko will be our captain for this one while Haller is the vice-captain.
