West Ham: W-W-L-D-W
Everton resumes their Premier League season with a visit of struggling West Ham United at Goodison Park.
The Toffees are yet to taste victory this season and have picked up four draws and two losses along the way. Frank Lampard’s side who battled relegation for the larger part of last season currently sit in 16th place, level on points with Aston Villa, West Ham and Nottingham Forest in 17th, 18th and 19th place respectively.
The Merseyside Club will be keen to avoid being caught up in the fierce battle for relegation once more and head coach Frank Lampard will be eager to see his boys claim their first victory of the season against David Moyes’ struggling side.
Along with bottom-placed Leicester City, Everton are the only team in the EPL without a single win this season, therefore the Merseyside club have it all to play for in this fixture.
After their impressive display against Liverpool in their last League outing before the break, Lampard’s side will fancy their chances of claiming their first victory of the season when the Hammers roll into town.
Possible Everton starting line-up
Asmir Begovic; Conor Coady, James Tarkowski, Michael Keane; Nathan Patterson, Alex Iwobi, Amadou Onana, Vitalii Mykolenko; Anthony Gordon, Demarai Gray, Neal Maupay.
Injured: Mason Holgate, Jordan Pickford, Ben Godfrey, Yerry Mina, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Abdoulaye Doucoure
West Ham United
After threatening to break into the top four last season, David Moyes’ team have not had the best start to the Premier League season, with results at the London Stadium a far cry from their lofty achievement last season.
The Hammers come into this game with four points from six games. Their last outing in the League was a 2-1 loss to Chelsea, where a Maxwel Cornet stoppage time equaliser was controversially ruled out.
However, David Moyes’ side have enjoyed a different run of form in the Europa Conference League where they have recorded back-to-back victories, and come into this game off the back of a 3-1 win over Romanian side Football Club FCSB. The Scottish coach will now hope that his boys can replicate their European form in the English domestic league as they look to bounce back from their early season crisis.
Possible West Ham starting line-up
Lukasz Fabianski; Vladimir Coufal, Thilo Kehrer, Kurt Zouma, Aaron Cresswell; Tomas Soucek, Declan Rice; Pablo Fornals, Lucas Paqueta, Jarrod Bowen; Michail Antonio.
Injured: Nayef Aguerd, Benjamin Johnson
