verton welcomes West Ham to the meeting of two clubs with proud histories, dedicated fans and ambitions to disrupt the established elite of the Premier League.
West Ham finished sixth last season and won a European adventure for his efforts. The Hammers didn’t start this campaign as they finished last and sit ninth in seven games, but that doesn’t tell the whole story.
Two late losses to Manchester United and Brentford deprived them of two points that would have placed them seventh. A win today will see them overtake Everton.
The Toffees fly under new manager Rafa Benitez with four wins in seven games and are in fifth. They only lost once and secured a credible 1-1 draw at Old Trafford before the international break.
Kick-off date, time and location
Everton vs West Ham are scheduled to kick off at 2 p.m. on Sunday, October 17, 2021 at Goodison Park in Liverpool.
Where to watch Everton vs West Ham
TV channel: Today’s game will be televised on Sky Sports Premier League and Main Event.
Direct: Sky Sports subscribers will be able to watch the match online through the Sky Go website or app.
Everton vs West Ham team news
Michail Antonio has been in top form this season, scoring five goals and registering three more in just seven matches. After deciding not to join Jamaica during this international break, David Moyes will be carried by his form and freshness.
Moyes has headaches elsewhere, however. The right-back is a particular problem with Vladmir Coufal and Ryan Fredericks looking to recover from major injuries.
There are more concerns for Everton as first-choice forwards Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison, full-backs Lucas Digne and Seamus Coleman as well as midfielder Andre Gomes have all found their places on the injured list.
We also doubt the central defender Yerry Mina who could be tired following his commitments with the Colombian national team.
Everton vs West Ham prediction:
It could be the hardest game to call this weekend. Both teams are looking to prove that they belong more to the top than the middle of the league and are led by two managers eager to do the same.
Despite being away, West Ham will want to bring the game to Everton and have a bright red striker capable of causing them problems.
