Marouane Chamakh is looking forward to returning to West Ham when Crystal Palace visit Upton Park for a London derby this weekend.

The Moroccan striker started in Palace’s 3-2 win at Goodison Park on Wednesday, a result which all but secured Premier League football next season for the Eagles.

Chamakh hailed his team’s “perfect” four-game win streak before looking ahead to West Ham, where he played on loan in 2013.

“Four wins, 12 points - we can’t do much better than that,” said the Palace striker.

“We are so happy. Everton played very well but we concentrated hard and I think we are sure to stay up now.

“I said before the season I felt we were going to stay up.

“It was a big challenge for us but we did it - It’s unbelievable.

“We were at the bottom but I still thought we were going to stay up.

“West Ham will be a good derby.

“They had one more day of rest but I think it will be a good game.”
