What Trueform says for Everton vs West Ham
Everton were disappointing against Huddersfield last time out but deserve another chance against West Ham, judged on our overall Trueform ratings.
The Hammers have yet to pick up a single Premier League point this season and are facing a fifth straight top-flight defeat at Goodison Park.
We reckon 9/10 for a home win is hard to oppose as our opening Everton vs West Ham prediction.
A Look At Everton’s Betting Odds
Everton’s 1-1 draw with Huddersfield at this venue was a lacklustre affair, with Dominic Calvert-Lewin quickly responding to Town’s 34th-minute strike, but not much else happening.
Marco Silva’s side struggled to break down the Terriers, who sat deep with 10 men behind the ball straight from kick-off.
“When we play against that type of team, we have to play faster in certain moments of the game to disorganise them,” said the manager. “We didn’t create enough chances to score.”
Richarlison was suspended for that match and will again miss out this weekend after making an impressive start with the Toffees.
However, we still believe the hosts have enough attacking firepower to prevail judged on previous results, with a 2-1 triumph over Southampton coming in between 2-2 draws away to Wolves and Bournemouth.
Last Everton line-up: Pickford, Holgate, Zouma, Digne, Coleman, Sigurdsson, Schneiderlin, Davies, Walcott, Tosun, Calvert-Lewin.
Everton’s injury crisis has eased with Theo Walcott, Idrissa Gana Gueye, Calvert-Lewin and Bernard all in contention.
Defender Yerry Mina trained with the squad for the first time since his move from Barcelona after recovering from a foot injury, while midfielder James McCarthy has also returned from a broken leg.
However, defender Seamus Coleman will be out for two weeks with a stress fracture of the foot, while Phil Jagielka (knee), Andre Gomes (hamstring) and Michael Keane (head) are still absent.
A Look At West Ham United’s Betting Odds
This is a third tough road trip for West Ham, who were beaten 4-0 at Liverpool and 3-1 at Arsenal and have also lost at home to Bournemouth and Wolves.
Michail Antonio and Marko Arnautovic missed good chances against Wanderers last time out and the Hammers were made to pay when Adama Traore netted in injury time.
New manager Manuel Pellegrini admitted: “I don’t think it is a bad start, it is a very bad start. We can’t lose six points here at home like we have.
“In the training ground we are doing well, no lack of attitude. We have to take that work during the week to a game, where there is that added pressure.”
Pellegrini may now make more use of Andriy Yarmolenko after he started on the bench versus Wolves, so it wouldn’t surprise us if United scored.
However, Goodison isn’t really the type of ground you’d want to go to if already feeling the pressure and 23/10 for a home win and both teams to hit the target completes our Everton vs West Ham betting tips.
Last West Ham line-up: Fabianski, Cresswell, Balbuena, Diop, Fredericks, Anderson, Snodgrass, Sanchez, Wilshere, Antonio, Arnautovic.
Jack Wilshere will miss the trip after picking up an ankle problem in training. West Ham will assess the former Arsenal star next week before determining how long he will be out of action.
Striker Javier Hernandez has a virus so will also miss out, while Andy Carroll, Manuel Lanzini and Winston Reid remain long-term absentees.
