Everton v West Ham – Toffees on the drift as money comes in for Hammers away win



Under pressure Marco Silva welcomes West Ham to Goodison Park this weekend. The Portuguese manager knows that this could be the last chance he has to save his job at Everton.

With the Toffees dropping into the relegation places last weekend, Silva is now 5/4 favourite to be the next Premier League head coach sacked.

David Moyes leads the way to return and be his replacement at 2/1. He is followed by Jose Mourinho bizarrely at 15/2 and it is then 9/1 for Mikel Arteta to leave his supporting role at Manchester City and become a main man himself.

The visitors, West Ham, ran out 3-1 winners in this exact fixture last season. The odds for them to repeat that score line this Saturday lunch time are 28/1.

The Hammers have not won since that 2-0 victory over Manchester United now nearly four weeks ago. Everton are thus 10/11 favourites to win this one, whilst it is 14/5 for the away side to take all three points back to East London.

Midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson has had an uncharacteristically quiet start to this campaign.

He does have a good record against West Ham however. Sigurdsson has scored or assisted a goal in each of his three appearances against them. You can get him to score anytime at 15/8.

Meanwhile, Sebastien Haller has impressed many after his big money move to the London Stadium from Germany in the Summer.

The French striker opened the scoring in West Ham’s last fixture- that 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace. He is 13/2 to bag first again.

Haller’s side have also dropped the second-most points from leading positions in the division so far this year and it is 7/1 for the hosts to win from behind.

The omens for this one do not exactly point to a classic. The Toffees may not have lost consecutive home games to the Hammers since March 1930, but they are winless in their last eight Saturday lunchtime kick-offs.
