West Ham v Crystal Palace - starting line-ups

Brazilian set to make West Ham debut

Sam Allardyce will give new West Ham winger Nene his debut against Crystal Palace.

The Brazilian joined on a free transfer earlier this month, but was not deemed fit enough to face Spurs at the weekend.

"Nene would have probably featured anyway but he will definitely be involved now because we're down to the two strikers with Andy Carroll's injury and Carlton Cole's new hamstring problem," said Allardyce.

"(Strikers) Enner Valencia and Diafra Sakho did a fantastic job - like the whole team - against Tottenham. It was just a shame we were not all going out celebrating another victory against Tottenham."
