West Ham United will travel to Goodison Park to play Everton in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
At 2pm the Hammers will kick off against the Toffees in a bid to record their fourth league win of the season and climb further up the table.
David Moyes’ side have only one victory from their past five league matches, but still sit ninth in the table. A win here could take them as high as the top four, and will put the club in a good position going into a tough month of fixtures.
West Ham’s last Premier League meeting resulted in an agonising 2-1 loss at the hands of Brentford, courtesy of a 94th minute Yoane Wissa goal. However, a fully fit squad will go into this match looking to come away with all three points.
Everton on the other hand, go into this fixture in good form, having lost only one league game this season.
The Toffees sit 5th in the table, and recorded a hard-fought 1-1 draw against Manchester United last time out.
This will no doubt be a tough game for the Hammers, but David Moyes will be looking to take advantage of Everton’s injury-hit squad on Sunday.
West Ham Team News
West Ham go into this fixture with almost a fully fit squad following the international break. Eight players performed for their national teams but David Moyes is lucky to have a strong selection of players to choose from.
Vladimir Coufal and Michail Antonio withdrew from international duty previously to focus on training and fitness, whereas Ryan Fredericks is a minor doubt with a groin injury but could make an appearance from the bench.
Everton, on the other hand, have a large number of injury worries going into this match. Fabian Delph is the only certain absentee but the likes of Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison and Andre Gomes are all doubtful.
Lucas Digne, Alex Iwobi, Seamus Coleman and Yerry Mina are also doubtful for this clash, but have returned to full training so could well appear for the Toffees.
Everton 1 – 2 West Ham United
Despite Everton being in good form, the Hammers should be confident that they can take all three points from this game on Sunday.
The Toffees will be a tough side to break down and have a few in-form players, like Andros Townsend and Demarai Gray, who David Moyes’ men will need to learn how to stop.
But West Ham know that this would be an important win and will want to try and pull out all the stops after a disappointing performance last time out. Three points here will be a great victory for the Hammers.
