Crystal Palace beat West Ham United at Selhurst Park Stadium in an explosive seven goal thriller.
Today’s match was one of the best top flight match we have seen in the Premier League this season.
No one would have thought that this encounter will turn out to be a seven goals thriller with goals flying in anyhow.
The win has moved Crystal Palace to 40 points this season and they are well off the Premier League relegation zone.
West Ham United on the other hand will be aggrieved that despite scoring three goals they could not secure a point.
This win was Crystal Palace’s first win in their last three matches and their first win against West Ham since 2019/20.
And this same win marked the highest-scoring match between the two sides since December 1911.
Kickoff was delayed at the Selhurst park stadium due to faulty turnstiles and a massive first half saw fans in a tense mood.
West Ham United were the first to score as they aimed to complete a hat trick of EPL away win thanks to Tomas Soucek close range shot.
Palace quickly replied through the right foot of Jordan Ayew as they have been progressive since Roy Hodgson took over.
Wilfried Zaha and Jeffrey Schlupp scored for Palace to put the match out of reach for the Hammers.
Crystal Palace showed their full extent of determination to become the 11th side this season to hit the 40-point barrier.
Wilfried Zaha returned to the starting line up after missing four matches due to injury and his return was crowned with a goal.
Schlupp scored an impressive goal after he dispossessed Soucek before he nutmegged Fanbiaski to score.
Michail Antonio pulled one back for the visitors after glancing in Soucek flick-on on the back post.
The goals kept flying in and it was already looking like one of the season’s blockbusters classic match.
After the game resumed in the second half, Eberechi Eze scored from the spot to ensure Crystal Palace were ahead.
He was fouled in the box by Nayef Aguerd and he dispatched the ball into the bottom corner to protect Palace’s lead.
Crystal Palace fell again as the Hammers scored from the corner again, in the same manner they scored their second goal.
The hosts were lucky that their ruthlessness was enough for them to finish the match on the high side.
West Ham are still in the corners of the relegation zone as they are currently 11 points off the zone with four matches to go.
