Everton vs West Ham United
English Premier League
Date: Sunday, 16th September 2018
Kick-off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Goodison Park (Liverpool).
Despite being undefeated in the last 4 games of this season, Everton may not have had the results they would have wanted. They kick off this season with a draw away to the Wolves. This was not the expected results for a seemingly easy fixture.
They have drawn in their last two EPL fixtures against Bournemouth and Huddersfield. Most notably, the last matchup against Huddersfield before heading into the international break also a huge disappointment.
This home game will be a chance for the Blues to redeem themselves. They must do all that is humanly possible to scoop the 3 points with a win in this one. Their opponents in this one are currently experiencing performance struggles which Everton ought to explore to the last minute.
Pellegrini is having the worst start of any season in his career. The Hammers are currently trailing in the last place of the standing after 4 defeated matches.
They are under pressure to arise and get back into their normal form. Even if it is evidently clear that they will be struggling in this away matchup, they can pull off some stunts to come out of this with something tangible.

Everton vs West Ham: Prediction
We cannot pretend to be oblivious to the fact that the hammers are really in huge trouble as they head to this away matchup. Everton will be looking to get the best out of this home match in front of their home fans.
Based on the prevailing team dynamics, I would go for a home win in this one. There would be no reason for the home team to win this game. However, west ham may fight back and get a least a goal in the back of the nest. The modest prediction for this matchup is both teams to score.
