After a two-week absence, West Ham United will look to continue their remarkable pursuit of a place in next season’s Champions League when they host Everton on Sunday.
The hosts went into the international break on the back of two defeats in three Premier League (PL) matches (W1), leaving them seventh in the table and six points shy of the top four, despite playing more games than their rivals.
They will look to go back to winning ways in this game after losing their last game against Tottenham.
Given their home form, they will come into this tie confident of getting a result. David Moyes’ side have won their last three home games in all competitions. They could win a third consecutive home league game for the first time since March 2021 to keep themselves firmly in the race for the Europa League spots.
Possible West Ham starting line-up
Lukasz Fabianski; Ben Johnson, Craig Dawson, Kurt Zouma, Aaron Cresswell; Declan Rice, Tomas Soucek; Nikola Vlašić, Pablo Fornals, Said Benrahma; Michail Antonio.
Injured: Vladimir Coufal, Angelo Ogbonna
Doubtful: Jarrod Bowen
Everton will look to make it two wins in two league games when they travel to London on Sunday.
The Toffees ended a run of four consecutive losses in their last PL outing as they defeated Newcastle United, despite playing with ten men for much of the game.
However, they followed up that win against Newcastle with an embarrassing 4-0 loss to Crystal Palace in the FA Cup, proving that beating the Magpies was just pure luck.
Although they cannot rely on luck to stay out of the relegation zone this season, they would be hoping for some of it in this game against a side that they have historically troubled at home. Frank Lampard’s side have lost only one of their last 13 PL home games against the Hammers (W8, D4), with each of the last three games in that run seeing West Ham concede before half-time.
However, they have a very poor away record and are the team with the least number of points away from home this season (six points- W1, D3, L9). Their last four competitive road trips saw them concede an eye-watering 14 goals while scoring only one in response.
There must, therefore, be in their best shape defensively to get a result from this game.
Possible Everton starting line-up
Jordan Pickford; Seamus Coleman, Mason Holgate, Michael Keane, Ben Godfrey; Abdoulaye Doucoure, Dele Alli, Donny van de Beek; Demarai Gray, Richarlison, Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
Injured: Tom Davies, Yerry Mina, Andros Townsend
Doubtful: Fabian Delph
West Ham 2-1 Everton
