West Ham United vs Everton Prediction: PL | 09.05.2021
West Ham’s Champions League hopes are still very much alive with four games of the season to go. Every game will be a cup final for them by the end of the season, and that starts with this game against Everton.
Premier League preview
All neutral Premier League supporters will encourage West Ham to finish in the top four this season. That achievement would have seemed incredibly difficult at the start of the season, but they are within reach with four games to go. If West Ham can record four straight wins to end the season, then it would be difficult to see them finish outside of Champions League places. The two teams directly above them have a series of tough games to end the season, while this game against Everton is the only time the Hammers will face a team in the top half. West Ham continued to show determination in their recent game against Burnley. The Hammers fell behind early in this game, but managed to turn the game around in ten minutes. Michail Antonio scored both goals.
Carlo Ancelotti is reportedly disappointed with the way his Everton side have moved away from European positions in recent weeks. The Toffees are now eighth and have won only once in their last six games. They have drawn three times in that series of games and lost twice. Their last loss came last weekend, beaten 2-1 by Aston Villa at Goodison Park. They could still qualify for European competition as they are two points behind Liverpool and four behind Spurs. However, given their performance over the past few weeks, that seems incredibly unlikely.
West Ham United vs Everton head to head
West Ham recorded a first league win over Everton in three earlier in the season. However, their home record is pretty decent against the Toffees. Everton have won only once in their last five visits to east London.
West Ham United vs Everton prediction
It’s a huge weekend for the Hammers as they could tie the points with Chelsea. This match could be the difference between qualifying for the Champions League or not. Their performances have been excellent, and we expect them to lead in an entertaining game.
