Eagles secure deserved derby point

Wilfried Zaha

Wilfried Zaha

Crystal Palace had to make do with home point after a 1-1 draw against West Ham United.

The Hammers went ahead from the spot after keeper Vicente Guita clattered into Michail Antonio and Mark Noble tucked away the resulting penalty on 27 minutes.

Guita had earlier blocked strikes from West Ham's Ryan Fredericks and Robert Snodgrass.

Palace then dominated the second period and drew level with a deflected Wilfried Zaha shot off Issa Diop at the near post in the 76th minute.

James McArthur somehow shot against the post from six yards when it would have been easier to score.

West Ham keeper Lukasz Fabianski denied Zaha with a brilliant save to his left, while substitute Michy Batshuayi also spurned a close-range effort.

Palace: Guaita, Wan-Bissaka, Kelly, Sakho, Van Aanholt, Townsend, Milivojevic, Schlupp, McArthur (Meyer 79), Zaha, Benteke (Batshuayi 61).

Not used: Hennessey, Ward, Dann, Sako, Ayew.

West Ham: Fabianski, Fredricks (Zabaleta 84), Diop, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Antonio (Obiang 73), Rice, Noble, Snodgrass, Anderson, Hernandez (Arnautovic 68).

Not used: Adrian, Masuaku, Diagana, Carroll.
