West Ham will want to get back to winning ways when they take on a struggling Everton side at the London Stadium tomorrow afternoon.
The defeat to Tottenham just before the international break was understandable, as it came days after the memorable win over Sevilla, but manager David Moyes will be keen for his side to refocus on the league.
In terms of team news, Jarrod Bowen is close to making a return from an ankle injury but he is unlikely to feature against the Toffees, with Moyes cautious about the winger making his comeback too soon.
Vladimir Coufal (hernia) is in the same position, while Manuel Lanzini is also not expected to play after recently being involved in a car accident. Angelo Ogbonna remains sidelined with a knee injury.
West Ham’s Predicted XI To Play Everton:
Fabianski, Johnson, Zouma, Dawson, Cresswell, Soucek, Fornals, Rice, Vlasic, Antonio, Benrahma
Everton boss Frank Lampard will be able to welcome back Donny van de Beek and Asmir Begovic after illness, but Fabian Delph (thigh), Yerry Mina (hamstring), Tom Davies (tendon) and Andros Townsend (knee) have all been ruled out of contention. Allan is also suspended.
Everton’s Predicted XI:
Pickford, Coleman, Holgate, Keane, Godfrey, Doucoure, Gordon, van de Beek, Iwobi, Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison
The bookies have the Hammers as the favourites with Ladbrokes pricing them at 4/5 for the win. A draw is currently 14/5 with Bet 365 while a victory for Everton is 19/5 at Unibet.
Predicted Score – 2-0 to West Ham
