West Ham United v Crystal Palace: Why is Premier League game not on TV, kick off time, how to watch highlights

A win for Crystal Palace could potentially see them as high as eighth, and above Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool, if other results go their way

Crystal Palace will make the short trip from south to east London this weekend as they face West Ham in the Premier League. A win for the Hammers will see them leapfrog their London neighbours.

West Ham will be fired up after their resounding 3-0 away win against FCSB in the Europa Conference League. They finished their group with a perfect record of six wins from six games.

Crystal Palace also come into the game with a win. They beat Southampton 1-0 to leave them 10th in the league.

They will have had eight days of rest since their last game compared to West Ham just having two full days of rest. The hectic schedule could explain why West Ham are yet to get fully going this season.

This fixture last season was an entertaining 2-2 draw between the two. Crystal Palace came from behind twice thanks to two second half goals from Connor Gallagher, who was on loan from Chelsea at the time.

When does West Ham United vs Crystal Palace kick off?

Kick off between the two is at 2pm on Sunday, November 6 at the London Stadium, the home of West Ham since 2016.

Why is the game not on TV?

Despite not being in the window where the 3pm blackout is active - where football cannot be broadcast, the game is not on TV because Sky or BT Sport did not pick it up.

Games are moved to Sunday’s usually for TV purposes, but this game was moved due to West Ham’s involvement in the Europa Conference League.
