Anthony Taylor will be the referee for West Ham's Premier League encounter with Crystal Palace at the London Stadium on Saturday and he is not someone Hammers fans have seen too much of.

In good news for Pellegrini though, the Eagles have not had a great time of it in games that Taylor has been referee for them this season as they have lost both times he has been the man in the middle - a 2-0 defeat to Everton in October and a 2-1 reverse against Watford in September.

It was much better last season, Taylor took charge of the Hammers 1-0 win over Chelsea at the London Stadium when Marko Arnautovuc got off the mark for the club as David Moyes deployed him as a centre forward for the first time.

But he has got the London derby this weekend between the Hammers and Eagles in Stratford where the home side will be looking for their third straight win in seven days, while Palace have won just once in their last ten games.
