West Ham manager David Moyes would probably have been glad at the timing of the international break, having lost at home against Brentford in their last fixture.
They will need to be in the right frame of mind when they travel to Goodison Park on Sunday. Everton have been in decent form under manager Rafa Benitez and this could be a tough test.
Vladimir Coufal is a doubt with a groin problem, while Ryan Fredericks is still sidelined with a similar injury.
West Ham’s Predicted XI To Face Everton:
Fabianski, Johnson, Zouma, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Soucek, Benrahma, Rice, Bowen, Antonio, Fornals
The Toffees have injury doubts over no less than seven players. Richarlison (knee), Dominic Calvert-Lewin (toe), Seamus Coleman (hamstring), Lucas Digne (muscular), Alex Iwobi (knock), Yerry Mina (fitness) and Andre Gomes (calf) have all been on the treatment table. Fabian Delph (shoulder) has been ruled out of contention.
Everton’s Predicted XI:
Pickford, Coleman, Mina, Keane, Digne, Townsend, Doucoure, Allan, Gordon, Gray, Rondon
The bookies have made Everton the slight favourites with 888 Sport pricing them at 6/4 to win. A draw is 12/5 with Sky Bet while a victory for West Ham is 2/1 at Betfred.
Predicted Score – 0-0
