Everton vs West Ham 1o1 Great Goals prediction: Everton 2-1 West Ham
West Ham have not made a great start to the season and face a tough trip to Goodison to face an Everton side who just can’t stop shipping goals.
Manuel Pellegrini has struggled to get a side that was tipped to push for a top six spot firing so far this season.
The Hammers are the only side in the Premier League without a point.
Everton, meanwhile, have made a decent start to the season but are struggling to keep clean sheets.
Everton vs West Ham: Who will win?
As expected, due to West Ham’s extremely poor start to the season Everton go into the game as favourites.
They can be picked up at odds of 11/10 to win while West Ham are priced at 27/10.
The Hammers to win may not even be a bad bet considering Everton’s huge injury problems.
One thing is for sure, that a BTTS should land in this game, priced at 4/6.
While Everton are good going forward, they are poor defensively.
That has meant that they have conceded in every game they have played this season in all competitions.
They have also scored in every game too.
That means that a BTTS Everton win, priced at 11/4 is probably your best bet for this game, or BTTS and West Ham win for 11/2.
Everton vs West Ham match preview
Starting with Marco Silva’s Everton, the Toffees have made a decent start to the campaign.
They are still unbeaten at this point of the season but have had two disappointing results in draws with Bournemouth and Huddersfield recently.
Their main strength has come in attack with Richarlison impressing early on before being sent off against the Cherries.
It is their defence which has plagued them, however.
The Toffees have not kept a clean sheet in any of their games this season, including a cup game against Rotherham.
Yerry Mina was brought in to solve those holes in the defence but is yet to play after an injury over the summer.
That brings us on to Everton’s long injury list.
Marco Silva has a lot of his star players out of the game and that could give West Ham a chance to get their first win on the board.
Safe to say, Everton’s unbeaten run is under threat but they should still have enough to beat a Hammers side in turmoil.
Can the Hammers finally get points on the board?
If West Ham fans thought they were in turmoil last season, they might be even more so this season.
Despite spending just under £100 million, the side are yet to pick up a single point so far.
They may have faced Liverpool and Arsenal but have also fallen to disappointing losses against Bournemouth and Wolves.
Manuel Pellegrini looked to kick-start a new era for the club but his main issue looks to be getting the right system.
As Everton actually discovered last season, buying so many players at once is not always a good thing.
The Toffees spent in excess of £100million last season and were threatened by relegation at one point.
Now, West Ham find themselves in a similar position.
Star signings Andriy Yarmolenko and Issa Diop have not gotten their Hammers careers off to a great start which doesn’t help.
With West Ham’s defensive frailties, Everton’s strong attack and the Blues weak defence, this could be a cracker of a game.
Everton team news vs West Ham
It’s not been a great week for Everton and injuries.
There could be as many as 12 players out of the squad ahead of this game.
Richarlison will serve the last game of his three-match ban while many others suffer through injury.
James McCarthy (calf), Michael Keane (hairline fracture of the skull), Phil Jagielka (cartilage injury) and Andre Gomes (hamstring) will all miss the game.
Yerry Mina is a doubt for the clash, as is midfielder Idrissa Gueye with knocks.
Theo Walcott (abdominal injury) and Dominic Calvert-Lewin are two more recent injuries, with both also doubts.
Bernard’s recent injury could see him be touch and go for this weekend while Seamus Coleman suffered a stress fracture on international duty.
West Ham team news vs Everton
The Hammers don’t currently have any pressing injury problems.
Winston Reid and Andy Carroll are still out through long-term injuries while Manuel Lanzini is progressing but won’t be ready for this weekend.
West Ham could look to shuffle things but we expect the team who fell to a late defeat against Wolves to make up the base of the team.
