Everton hosts West Ham
Everton hosts West Ham in a match from the 5th round of the English Premier League. Let’s take a look at this clash at the Goodison Park in the city of Liverpool.
Everton is currently 7th in the Premier League standings. They started the new season unbeaten so far, has one win and three draws from the first four rounds. Marco Silva’s team enjoyed a win over Southampton and made draws against Wolverhampton, Bournemouth and Huddersfield Town. So far the team have scored 7 goals and conceded 6. For sure Marco Silva would like to improve the team’s defence in future – right now Everton is conceding too many goals.
In the previous round, The Blues made a 1-1 draw at home against Huddersfield Town. Philip Billing opened the score for the away team, but Dominic Calvert-Lewin equalized for Everton, saving the point for his team.
West Ham is starting a new era under the management of Manuel Pellegrini. But this new era didn’t start in the best way. Under the management of the decorated Chilean, West Ham lost all of their four matches so far. They are the only team without a point since the beginning of the season.
In the previous round, the Hammers suffered a 0-1 defeat at home against Wolverhampton Wanderers – one of the newcomers in the league. It was really a heartbreaking experience for West Ham as Wolverhampton scored their winner in the last seconds of the game, thanks to Adama Traore’s strike.
This is our look at the match between Everton and West Ham at the Goodison Park. Everton will aim to clinch their second win since the beginning of the season, while West Ham is still trying to win their first point. If the Hammers suffered a fifth consecutive loss in the league, it’s going to be a delicate situation for Manuel Pellegrini.
