Everything you need to know about tomorrow’s clash with Everton
West Ham United will be looking for their first win of the Premier League season when they travel to Goodison Park to take on Everton tomorrow afternoon.
The Hammers have had a poor start to the season, losing all four of their top flight games so far – a run of form that sees them sit rock bottom of the Premier League table.
And after four successive defeats, Manuel Pellegrini may be forced to make a number of charges as he goes in search of his first three points as the club’s manager.
Andriy Yarmolenko – a £17 million summer signing from Borussia Dortmund – is likely to be handed his first start after an impressive international break, with club record signing Felipe Anderson likely to make way following his poor start to the season.
In midfield, Pedro Obiang is expected to come in in favour of either Carlos Sanchez our Jack Wilshere, with the former most likely to make way for the Spaniard.
Marko Arnauotovic will keep his place up-front, but will face competition from the bench in the form of youngster Xande Silva, who was spotted training with the first team earlier this week. The Portuguese striker has managed five goals this season for the club’s U23s.
Andy Carroll and Winston Reid remain out following their surgeries earlier in the summer. Carroll is expected back by the end of the month, while Hammers fans may have to wait until near Christmas for the return of Reid. Manuel Lanzini is also still sidelined after damaging his ACL in pre-season.
West Ham have no suspension worries ahead of tomorrow’s game.
