Another huge clash in the race for a top four spot. West Ham currently sit six points ahead of their visitors on 58 points and just three off Chelsea who currently hold the final Champions League spot for next season prior to this gameweek.
After back-to-back defeats to Newcastle and Chelsea, this Hammers outfit regrouped to come from behind and beat Burnley last time out.
Unsurprisingly, they have found it hard without their midfield maestro Declan Rice in recent weeks, but if they continue to score at their current rate, then they’ll give themselves a good chance.
Indeed, they have 13 goals from their last six outings, as five of those saw more than two goals scored in the game, and a minimum of five goals in four.
Everton, on the other hand, have been pretty woeful of late. They’ve earned just six points from their last seven outings and their chances of Champions League football for next season have taken a huge blow.
They’d most likely need to win all their remaining games of the season to have any chance of fighting it out with the best clubs in the world next season and that could be a step too far considering that recent form.
Defeat to Aston Villa last time out will have hurt them, but they do have a remarkably impressive record on the road.
They’ve gone W7-D2-L1 from their last 10 trips dating back to mid-December, beating the likes of Leicester, Wolves, Leeds, Liverpool and Arsenal, while the only team that got the better of them was Chelsea.
Everton Or Draw
In order to get a better idea of the likelihood of either of these two sides taking the honours in this one, their respective form against the fellow top eight teams has to be considered.
The Hammers have gone W4-D2-L7 against such sides this term, picking up only 14 points although that’s a slightly improved W2-D1-L3 at London Stadium.
By contrast, Everton have earned two more points than their hosts against similar opposition having played one fewer game, while a W3-D1-L1 record visiting those top sides is certainly worth taking note of.
The Toffees have taken the spoils in recent head-to-heads, having won three of their five meetings since the start of 2019 in all competitions, as their sole defeat came at Goodison Park this season.
That’s hardly surprising given how poor they’ve been there this season and all things considered the double chance on the visitors looks to be where the value lies.
