West Ham United host Everton in a match which will not have any impact whatsoever on the final standings in the Premier League given none of the teams have anything to play for coming into the final day.
The Hammers are safe from relegation in spite of winning just two of last ten league games. They bounced back from tough losses to Arsenal and Man City (both 1-4) stunning Leicester City 0-2 at King Power. Such win was kind of backed up with the goalless draw to Man Utd on Thursday evening at London Stadium. Can David Moyes finish the campaign with three straight games without a defeat here?
Sam Allardyce has huge woes with the squad head of the trip to the capital. He’ll be without some of his main stars including Wayne Rooney who is about leave Goodison and sign for DC United in the following days. Additionally, highly-paid Gylfi Sigurdsson is also sidelined, just as Elaquim Mangala, James McCarthy and Dominick Calvert-Lewin.
West Ham vs Everton: Head-to-head
- Everton dominate the match-up over the history winning 62 and losing 32 of 120 meetings with West Ham United.
- The Hammers failed to score in last two head to head encounters.
- The Toffees destroyed their rivals 4-0 when the teams met in late-November last year at Goodison.
- None of last three H2H games saw both teams on target.
West Ham vs Everton: Prediction
Everton will be looking to finish the campaign on a high in spite of Allardyce’s troubles with the squad. The Toffees are undefeated in last five league games proving out to be very tough to break down after conceding just two goals in the process.
Since it’s fair to say West Ham United have been struggling for goals lately, and since they did not score at all in last two meetings with Everton, we just have to back a low-scoring affair and chase the Under 2.5 goals FT bet at the 2.00 odds.
Braver tipsters could even try with the goalless draw longshot, priced up at the sky-high 12.00 odds.
