The West Ham United boss, Slaven Bilic, is upbeat about the Crystal palace visit.
Wes Ham has proved to be one of the most dominating travelling teams in the ongoing season.
They have beaten the likes of City and the Gunners playing on their respective home grounds.
And now, they are looking to add Palace to their scalps too as they return to the Premier League again post international break.
West Ham’s attacking play has been as good as any other team. They’ve found the net 17 times and are equalized to City in that regard.
Position-wise, the Hammers are at no. 6 in the standings presently with 4 wins under their belt.
Palace, however, is a couple of places ahead of West Ham as far as the standings are concerned. They are 4th and they have also been rather impressive on away grounds.
2 out of the 5 victories that Palace has secured have come not playing at home.
So, it looks like the making of a cracking contest.
In his interaction to the media ahead of the game, Bilic was also of the view that the two teams would run each other close as both have been in form.
He was quoted as saying, “We know a tough challenge awaits us and we’re up for it. They are playing good Football at the moment and so are we. They counter punch well and we will have to be wary of that.”
When asked which opposition player, he believes, can do most of the damage to his team, Bilic said, “Yohan Cabaye is somebody who can change the game at any point of time. He has got wonderful skills.”
Cabaye has scored 3 goals this season in 9 appearances.
