West Ham predicted to comfortably beat Crystal Palace by Natalie Sawyer

Natalie Sawyer has predicted that West Ham will comfortably beat Crystal Palace in today’s Premier League clash at the London Stadium.

The former Sky Sports News presenter speaking to Boyle Sports revealed that she believes the likes of Michail Antonio and Said Benrahma should have a field day against the Eagles.

Palace have failed to score a goal in their first three games of the season, and if the Hammers play as they did in their first two league games, they should win.

Sawyer said when asked about Antonio and Benrahma: “Terrific partnership.

“I am really pleased for him [Benrahma] because we know the impact he [could] make when he was at Brentford; he’s doing brilliantly and combining with Michail Antonio, who you know is just a threat.

“I think it’s really key they get points on the board early because they’ve got [the] Europa League coming up next month, and that’s just going to add to the congestion of fixtures.

“I do think again this is going to be a very comfortable win for West Ham. I think they’ll win it to nil as well.”

Sawyer is confident.

Sawyer is confident that the Irons will rack up another three points, and given the way they have started the season, we can see why she is confident.

The Hammers are top of the Premier League as it stands and have picked up maximum points but also scored eight goals, and Palace could be the next team to suffer.

The Irons just look so confident, and they will be backed by a happy home crowd, so it could be a tough afternoon for the Eagles, who will be lucky to leave the London Stadium with anything.

In other West Ham news, the Hammers are watching a striker and could make a bid.
