Sam Allardyce is aiming to break West Ham's losing streak over Crystal Palace - but is expecting a tough challenge from a side still likely to play the 'Tony Pulis' way.
– Sam Allardyce
I think they have some better players than last season but they very much stick to the same type of structural organisation.
We didn't beat them last year and it will be just as difficult, if not more so, with the players they've brought in.
The new players have lots of Premier League experience and from that point of view we'll have a tough job.
There's still lots of excitement around the ground and the stadium, the players know their position now, they know what their job is.
