Everton v West Ham United: match preview

Manuel Pellegrini savoured his first win as the West Ham manager at Everton last season and a repeat could have serious repercussions for Marco Silva

Manuel Pellegrini savoured his first win as the West Ham manager at Goodison last season, a comprehensive 3-1 victory, and a repeat could have serious repercussions for Marco Silva as he looks to halt a run of four straight league defeats that have left Everton in the relegation zone. Silva described this game as a must-win in the aftermath of defeat at Burnley before the international break. Everton’s performances have been as weak and the rising pressure on their manager, coupled with a disgruntled home crowd, offers a potent mix tthe visitors could exploit. Andy Hunter
