Crystal Palace Beat West Ham

Crystal Palace put on a strong display as they went on to beat West Ham 4-3. West Ham didn't do badly themselves but were generally the lower-quality team during the match. Jordan Ayew put Crystal Palace ahead in the 15th minute, followed by Wilfried Zaha who made it 2-0 in the 20th minute.

Jeffrey Schlupp took advantage of a sloppy mistake in West Ham's box by their keeper, and scored Crystal Palace's third in the 30th minute as Eberechi Eze, who'd been fouled, came on to convert a penalty in the 66th minute.

Roy Hodgson Having an Impact at Crystal Palace

New Contract for Zaha at Crystal Palace
