It has been well over a month since Everton last won a football match. Those three points came on September 17th in a 3-1 beating of Middlesbrough. Since then, the team has been knocked out of the EFL Cup by Norwich and then taken two points from four games in the Premier League, landing them in sixth place. The wins need to start coming thick and fast now to keep Champions League qualification within reach.
West Ham, currently 15th in the Premier League, has been one of the biggest disappointments this season. After finishing in 7th place a year ago, big things were expected. Yikes. The Hammers have already been knocked out of Europa League qualifying and are leaking goals. The 17 times they have conceded is the second-most in the EPL.
Last year, the teams played to a 1-1 draw in London on November 7 with goals from Manuel Lanzini and Romelu Lukaku. The second meeting, in March, saw seven yellow cards given out, including two to Kevin Mirallas in the first 35 minutes. It was a 90th minute goal from Dimitri Payet that clinched a 3-2 win for West Ham at Goodison Park.
