West Ham still in the top-four hunt
West Ham are still firmly in the hunt for a top-four place and with just a smattering of fixtures left to contest, every point counts for the Champions League-chasing Irons.
The Hammers found their feet again at Turf Moor last week following successive defeats to Newcastle and Chelsea, beating Burnley 2-1 in a comeback triumph in Lancashire.
Fit-again Michail Antonio rifled home both of the Irons’ goals, and the impactful forward’s return to the fold is a major boost to West Ham’s chances of landing that lucrative top-four berth.
Make or break for Everton
Everton are entering last chance saloon territory in their bid to secure continental football for next season, and win for the Toffees on Sunday would push them to within three points of West Ham in fifth, with a game in hand.
Carlo Ancelotti’s men are in dismal form however and a haul of just one victory from their last seven league assignments means they are closer to the bottom half than they are to the division’s European qualification places at present.
Everton remain troubled hosts at Goodison Park, though their away record is still strong, and their counter-attacking power could cause West Ham a problem or two this weekend.
Goals at both ends in London
Everton’s potent counter-punching frontline is matched by a West Ham outfit armed with a rejuvenated Jesse Lingard and comeback king Michail Antonio, and with bags of attacking talent on show, bettors could be rewarded by backing both teams to score.
Goals have been produced at both ends in nine of West Ham’s last 13 league fixtures at the London Stadium, though the Irons have got the better of their visitors more often than not.
Indeed, only Manchester City have collected more points on their own turf than David Moyes’ impressive Irons this season and our 2-1 correct score prediction backs West Ham to harness home advantage again to secure a crucial win.
