West Ham take on Crystal Palace knowing that a win could take them into fourth place in the Premier League league.

Hammers boss Slaven Bilic has given on-loan Fenerbahce striker Emmanuel Emenike a place in the starting lineup.

The Nigerian international striker has two goals in all competitions for the east London based outfit since joining from the Istanbul giants back in January.

Palace have won the last two games at Upton Park but the Hammers have been in great form this season and are considered favourites by the bookmakers.
