However, there is another player on the Toffees squad who has a scoring record against West Ham, and that is Tom Cleverley.

The midfielder has scored goals against them with three different teams, and is ready to add to that tally with Everton. Cleverley scored with Wigan Athletic while he was on loan there, then with Manchester United, and again when he was on loan at Aston Villa.

"It gives you confidence when you’ve scored against a team before. I’ve got three in my career against them and I was thinking about it driving into training earlier this week.

"Hopefully I can make it four. I missed both games against West Ham last season so the last time I played against them I scored, and hopefully I can keep that run going.

"Rom always seems to score against them and long may that continue. But if me or Rom don’t score and we get the three points, I don’t think we’ll be bothered. That’s all that matters this weekend and hopefully we can do it."
