Team News: Everton
Mason Holgate (Knee Injury), Abdoulaye Doucouré (Hamstring Injury), Andy Lonergan (Knee Problems), Jordan Pickford (Thigh Problems), Andros Townsend (Cruciate Ligament Injury), Yerry Mina (Ankle Injury) and Ben Godfrey (Fibula Fracture) are not available for Everton boss Frank Lampard.
In all likelihood, The Toffees may well use the 4-3-3 formation this time featuring Asmir Begovic, Nathan Patterson, Conor Coady, James Tarkowski, Vitalii Mykolenko, Tom Davies, Amadou Onana, Alex Iwobi, Demarai Gray, Neal Maupay and Anthony Gordon.
Team News: West Ham United
Due to a mostly available group of players, there’s just the sole fitness problem for the West Ham United manager David Moyes to contend with. Nayef Aguerd (Ankle Injury) misses out for this game.
There’s a good chance that The Hammers will likely begin the game with a 4-2-3-1 lineup, choosing Lukasz Fabianski, Vladimir Coufal, Thilo Kehrer, Kurt Zouma, Aaron Cresswell, Tomas Soucek, Declan Rice, Jarrod Bowen, Lucas Paqueta, Pablo Fornals and Michail Antonio.
We feel that West Ham United and Everton may well both score, with little between these two teams.
It’s looking like it could well end up as a draw. With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a 1-1 draw when all is said and done.
