West Ham vs Everton Prediction

West Ham were on the road the last match-day, and they were defeated by a narrow scoreline of 1-0 by the defensively phenomenal Sheffield United.

Elsewhere, Everton recorded a win to nil at home for the same scoreline. Here, the sole goal was scored by Brazilian winger Richarlison.

In regards to result this Saturday, Everton easily come out on top. First and foremost, they are comparatively going through a period of better form.

To quote a stat, the team had won three of their last four league games, and this sole loss had come against Manchester City. Going on, they were also unbeaten in seven of their last nine overall fixtures, and the two losses had come against Liverpool, and Manchester City.

On the other hand, West Ham were winless in 13 of their previous 17 matches in all competitions, and they had lost an embarrassing 11 of these. 

At home, they had lost four of their prior five games, and they had conceded three or more goals in three of these five, and two or more goals in four of the five.

In addition, the team have recorded a total of just three wins at home during their PL campaign, and two of those three wins had come against Bournemouth, and Norwich – the 19th and 20th placed teams in the table.

Furthermore, they are placed just a single point above the relegation zone, and they are also one of the worst teams in front of the home crowd in the whole of the league.

Moreover, 15 of the previous 18 h2h wins had gone to Everton, and so did eight of the last nine at this stadium. Also, since 2007, only once have West Ham managed to record a win over the Toffees at this ground.

Taking into account all these observations, it’s easily inferenced that Everton, who are thriving under their new gaffer Carlo Ancelotti, will easily cruise to a win this Saturday. Still, to be on the safe side, we will opt for the Double Chance, and the Handicap.
