Everton vs West Ham – Wednesday 29th November 2017 – 20:00  

Everton are 13/10 with Wayne Rooney at 5/1 to score first.

Everton face West Ham at Goodison Park on Wednesday evening, in a crucial match for both sides.

The Toffees come into this match in poor form after losing another fixture, this time a 4-1 defeat against Southampton.

Dusan Tadic opened the scoring for the Saints (18), deftly stroking past Jordan Pickford to make it 1-0.

Gylfi Sigurdsson equalised for the Toffees with a stunning strike (45), the Icelandic midfielder's dipping strike beating Fraser Forster.

Charlie Austin scored two goals in six minutes for the Saints (52, 58) with the former QPR man scoring two second-half headers.

Steven Davis rounded off the win for the Saints (87), condemning the Toffees to a second hefty defeat in three days.


Poor Form 

It has been a poor run of form for Everton, who have lost four of their last six matches, conceding 18 goals in that time.

David Unsworth has been unable to arrest the slide started under Ronald Koeman, the performances under him have made certain he won't be the next Toffees manager.

This latest result is another setback for Everton, they are struggling to at both ends of the pitch and are in real trouble.

Everton come into this match in 16th place in the Premier League, the club are in talks with Sam Allardyce who is the only logical choice for manager.


Toffees Favourites

Everton come into this match as the favourites, despite their appalling recent form.

David Unsworth will be looking to win this fixture and secure some much-needed momentum in what is likely to be his last match in charge.

Everton will be looking for a second win in three matches against West Ham.

Tough Point

West Ham come into this match on the back of a 1-1 draw at home against Leicester, a result that gets David Moyes tenure as manager up and running.

Leicester took an early lead through Marc Albrighton (8), with the poisonous atmosphere at the London Stadium of late never appearing.

The fans stuck with the players though and they got the rewards in the 45th minute when Cheikhou Kouyate equalised for the Hammers.

It's a solid result for both sides, with new managers David Moyes and Claude Puel in need of any points.


Poor Campaign

West Ham are enduring a tough campaign themselves, with the Hammers also enduring a change of manager.

They find themselves in 18th place on 10 points, a predicament they have to get out of given the investment in the squad.

The Hammers have had a mixed run of form, with one win, two draws and three defeats in their last six.

They face a Toffees side who are in the exact same predicament as them, this will be one of the biggest matches of the season.


Hammers Underdogs

David Moyes' side come into this match as the underdogs, despite Everton's poor record this season.

This will be a tough match for West Ham, they will be wary of Everton as they will have been wounded by all the recent criticism.

West Ham will be looking for their 31st win in 120 matches against the Toffees.


West Ham are 9/4 with Andy Carroll and Diafra Sakho at 13/2 to open the scoring.
