West Ham United hosts Everton at the London Stadium in a match from the 23th round of the Premier League. Here are our English Premier League predictions for this fixture in the capital.
West Ham’s new manager David Moyes faces one of his former clubs. The Hammers approach this match from 16th place in the standings, just one point above the relegation zone. This means that the Londoners have some work to do in order to secure their survival. West Ham started the season with high ambition, but so far the club is underperforming big time.
Last week Moyes’ team conceded its 11th loss for the season. West Ham visited the tough Sheffield United at the Bramall Lane and conceded a 0-1 defeat. Now the Hammers must redeem themselves and win some precious points at home.
For this match David Moyes can’t use the injured Ukrainian striker Andriy Yarmolenko, while Jack Wilshere and Ryan Fredericks are unavaliable, too.
Just as we expected, Everton are improving since the appointment of the legend Carlo Ancelotti. The Toffees won three of their last four games in the Premier League, which helped them to climb up to 11th place in the standings. It might not look like a great achievement, but Everton were in a much worse situation before the sack of Marco Silva.
Last week Everton celebrated their 8th win for the season. The Toffees hosted Brighton & Hove Albion at the Goodison Park and scored just once, bit it was enough to take the win. The Brazilian international Richarlison scored the only goal in the game after an assist from Lucas Digne.
That’s our English Premier League predictions for the match between West Ham United and Everton on Saturday. For the hosts it won’t be easy against in-form team like Everton. Can they use their home advantage here?
