Everton have been in great form and we are backing them to get one over their former manager David Moyes on New Year’s premier league fixture.
Everton have been in great form in the Premier League, winning each of their last four matches to see them rise up to 2nd in the table once again. The Toffees started with a win over Chelsea, which has been followed up by victories over Leicester and Arsenal. On Boxing Day, Everton beat Sheffield United 1-0 at Bramall Lane thanks to Gylfi Sigurdsson’s winner 10 minutes from time. Everton’s injury list sees them without Lucas Digne, Fabian Delph, Allan, Jean-Philippe Gbamin and Richarlison.
West Ham have dropped off in recent weeks as they come into this match without a win in their last four. The run started with a 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace before a 3-0 loss to Chelsea and a 2-2 draw with Brighton. Last time out, the Hammers were involved in a 0-0 bore draw against Southampton that sees them sit 10th in the Premier League table. West Ham’s only injury doubt is full-back Arthur Masuaku.
Everton have 72 wins in this fixture compared to West Ham’s 40. There have also been 31 draws shared between the two sides. Everton won 4-1 when the two sides met earlier in the season in the League Cup. Everton should be too strong for their opponents on New Year’s Day. We are backing the Toffees to win their fifth straight Premier League match.
