West Ham United will travel to face an injury-hit Everton side on Sunday, which could be the perfect opportunity to claim three points on Merseyside.
Following the international break, the Hammers are back in action and will be looking to record another Premier League win to their tally after a minor setback last time out.
The 2-1 loss to Brentford in their last game meant that David Moyes’ side have only won once in the past five league matches. The team has still been in form and were performing exceptionally well in cup competitions, but the Hammers are now placed 9th in the table.
Usually, a fixture against the Toffees would bring doubt and anxiousness to West Ham supporters. The Hammers have only won one game from the last six matches against them in all competitions.
However, the West Ham team in this match should be filled with confidence and belief that we can come away with another three points under our belt.
Everton are still in good form and recorded a strong 1-1 draw against Manchester United last time out, but face several injury struggles leading up to Sunday.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison, Andre Gomes and Fabian Delph will almost certainly sit this game out, as well as Lucas Digne, Alex Iwobi, Yerry Mina and Seamus Coleman all being listed as doubtful.
With this in mind, West Ham boast a fully fit and well-rested squad – with only a couple of squad players featuring twice for their national teams last week.
This would be a much-needed win for David Moyes and his side, with an action-packed month waiting ahead for the club. West Ham will play seven games in three weeks because of commitments in other competitions, such as the Europa League and EFL Cup.
Now, the Hammers have a great chance to take advantage of a wounded Everton and use a fully fit squad to go back to east London with a win. Moyes will definitely be eyeing up a victory over his former side, to get vengeance for losing the last meeting against them when the Toffees ran out 1-0 winners at London Stadium in May.
