Frank Lampard’s team is one of the most unpleasant surprises at the beginning of the season. They have big problems in all lines of the team. The confidence of the defense is not at a high level, while the attacking part is extremely ineffective. They scored only four goals in the first six rounds and are one of two teams in the Premier League without a win.
Interestingly, their last four league games ended without a winner. They drew against Liverpool, Leeds, Brentford, and Nottingham, so they are among the four teams that have not been defeated in the last four rounds.
Coach Frank Lampard has big problems with injured players, especially defenders. Goalkeeper Pickford and defenders Mina, Holgate, and Godfrey are out of the squad, as is midfielder Townsend. The good news is that Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Abdoulaye Doucoure will be back in the lineup, which is very important, as DCL is by far the best individual in Everton’s squad.
West Ham football players had perhaps the most difficult schedule of all the teams at the beginning of the championship. They played against Manchester City 0-2, Brighton 0-2, Tottenham 1-1, Chelsea 1-2 and won only one point in these four games. The current position in the table, 18th place, is not a measure of the quality of this team and we believe that their rise will start from this round.
During the two-week break due to the death of Queen Elizabeth II, they played two matches in the UEFA Conference League. They recorded both triumphs against FCSB 3-1 and Silkeborg 3-2. It is interesting that all six goals were scored by different players, which is an indication that a large number of players are in good shape.
The Hammers finished last season in a high 7th place, and during the summer they further strengthened all the lines of the team. Paqueta, Scamacca, Aguerd, Cornet, Emerson, and Areola are all newcomers and each has the individual quality to improve West Ham’s game at the moment.
David Moyes’ team won both matches last season – 2-1 and 1-0.
Everton (4-3-3): Begovic; Mykolenko, Tarkowski, Coady, Patterson; Onana, Iwobi, Gueye; Gray, Gordon, Maupay
West Ham (3-4-1-2): Fabianski; Cresswell, Zouma, Kehrer; Emerson, Soucek, Rice, Coufal; Paqueta; Bowen, Antonio
We expect an open and offensive game from both teams. We believe that it is not in their interest to win a point due to the slow start of the season. Therefore, we believe that both Everton and West Ham will score at least one goal each.
Prediction: Both Teams To Score – Yes
