Everton vs West Ham Match Preview and Team News
Everton has made a fine start to life under the stewardship of Rafa Benitez and currently sits in fifth, just two points off top spot. Some would argue the Toffees’ record should be even better, and they were unlucky not to take all three points from their trip to Old Trafford two weeks ago. The resurgent Andros Townsend grabbed their goal in the 1-1 draw with Manchester United, as the men from Merseyside had the better of the chances over the course of the 90 minutes. Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison were both missing from the Everton lineup that faced the Red Devils but could return here. Calvert-Lewin started the season in blistering form, and the England international will be keen to return to the ranks in the same vein. Unbeaten at home this season, Everton has already fired in eight goals at Goodison Park and can expect to add to that tally this weekend. Allan plays excellently and does not allow the opponent to play in the middle of the field. Richarlison is the team’s best player, the Brazilian played great last season, and the big clubs want this player in their squad.
The Hammers set off like an express train, banging in eight goals in their first two games, but things have plateaued a little since, and they have only won one of their last five in the league. David Moyes’ side is now also met with the challenge of combining domestic efforts with European competition. The strength in depth of United’s squad could be tested in the upcoming months. They suffered a 94th-minute heartbreak in their fixture with Brentford two weeks ago when a point was snatched away from them but now look to maintain their unbeaten away record. Michail Antonio is responsible for over a third of West Ham’s league goals this term and could add to his tally here. Declan Rice has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. Jarrod Bowen is also a tremendous player, and in the one-on-one game, he is unstoppable. Much is expected of this guy this season, and he is the future of English football.
