West Ham vs Everton
English Premier League
Date: 21 January 2023, Saturday
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: London Stadium (London).
A lot will be at stake on Saturday afternoon at London Stadium as West Ham host Everton in a massive relegation six-pointer in Matchday No 21.
Both teams have been struggling badly since the beginning of the season and both currently sit inside the bottom three of the Premier League standings.
The lack of attacking efficiency (West Ham) and creativity (Everton) has been the main issue for these two outfits.
The Hammers once again managed to create some chances last weekend but their strikers failed to convert in what ended as a 1-0 defeat at direct rivals Wolves in another six-pointer at Molineux.
It was the seventh consecutive winless match for West Ham. David Moyes’ men have lost six of these seven in the process.
Everton also suffered a loss in their six-pointer against Southampton seven days ago. They gained advantage through Anadou Onana but James Ward-Prowse came up with two second-half goals to help his Saints complete a super-important comeback at Goodison.
Much like their Saturday counterparts, Everton collected only one point in the previous six Premier League affairs.
The Toffees are particularly finding it tough to score on travels. They notched only six goals in nine Premier League outings on the road this term.
West Ham vs Everton Head-to-head
- Everton have been much more successful in the history of this matchup. They lead the H2H tie by 30 wins going into the 132nd meeting with the Hammers.
- The Toffees celebrated a 1-0 victory back in September last year when these two outfits met each other in the reverse fixture at Goodison.
- Four of the previous five head to head clashes between these teams finished in 1-0 scorelines.
West Ham vs Everton Prediction
Both West Ham and Everton are struggling badly for goals these days. This is a huge game for both managers and we don’t expect either Moyes or Lampard to take unnecessary risks here.
This is why backing a low-scoring match has to be the way to go. We also do believe that West Ham posses more quality in their ranks which is why we will take the Home win & Under 2.5 goals FT bet at the 4.00 odds.
