West Ham (9) v Everton (11)
Two points separate these two teams but West Ham should make that five by the end of this game. West Ham’s home form has them in 7th place but they did have to dig deep to beat Huddersfield 4-3 last time out. This year Everton have won at Cardiff and Huddersfield but their overall form has them sat, more or less, where they are in 11th place.
West Ham Team News
- Unknown Return Date: Winston Reid Lack of match fitness. Andriy Yarmolenko Achilles injury. Jack Wilshere Ankle injury. Carlos Sánchez Knee injury. Andy Carroll Ankle injury.
- 75% Chance of Playing: Samir Nasri Calf injury.
Everton Team News
- Unknown Return Date: Yerry Mina Hamstring injury.
- West Ham have won their last two Premier League games against Everton.
- In what is the 63rd season in which West Ham and Everton have faced in league competition, the Hammers are looking to complete only their fourth double over the Toffees (also 1926-27, 1929-30 and 1972-73).
- West Ham are unbeaten in their last six Premier League home games (W4 D2), winning the last three in a row. They last won four at home consecutively in the top-flight back in May 2002 under Glenn Roeder.
- West Ham haven’t lost any of their last 17 Premier League games in which they’ve scored at least once since a 1-3 loss at Arsenal in August – the longest current such run in the division (W12 D5).
- Everton are winless in their last 10 Premier League games played in London (D3 L7) since a 1-0 win at Crystal Palace in January 2017.
- West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini has only faced Newcastle United (eight times) more often in the Premier League without losing than he has against Everton (P7 W5 D2 L0).
- Everton manager Marco Silva is winless in nine matches in London in all competitions (W0 D1 L8).
- Manuel Lanzini has scored three Premier League goals in three home appearances for West Ham against Everton, scoring once at Upton Park in 2015-16 and a brace at London Stadium on the final day of the 2017-18 season.
- West Ham striker Javier Hernandez has scored all 52 of his Premier League goals from inside the box – only Tim Cahill (56 goals) has scored more exclusively from inside the box in the competition’s history.
Everton will be bubbling after beating Chelsea at home but that is not really a difficult achievement right now. Bournemouth, in a kind of up-down similar season to Everton, beat Chelsea 4-0 and then lost at Cardiff, Liverpool, and Arsenal with a draw with Wolves in that mix. So West Ham to finish on top of anther London Stadium goal feast with Felipe Anderson playing a leading role.
West Ham 3 – 2 Everton
