West Ham United v Everton: match preview

West Ham’s Winston Reid and Diafra Sakho are both injury doubts for the match against Everton

Although they are nine points above the bottom three, West Ham cannot relax yet. Slaven Bilic’s options have been limited by Andy Carroll’s groin injury and suspensions to Sam Byram and Mark Noble, while another concern for the manager must be Romelu Lukaku’s record against his side. The Everton forward has scored in each of his past nine matches against the Hammers. Jacob Steinberg
