Sidibe, Gomes And Iwobi To Start | 4-2-3-1 Everton Predicted Lineup Vs West Ham United

Everton will entertain West Ham United at Goodison Park on Saturday hoping to bounce back from their disappointing 1-0 defeat away at Burnley. The Toffees have made a poor start to this campaign which has put them in danger of being dragged into a relegation dogfight this term.

Hence, Marco Silva will be desperate to see his players emerge victorious this weekend as his job might very well be on the line. The English outfit are expected to set-up in a 4-2-3-1 formation with Djibril Sidibe, Andre Gomes and Alex Iwobi all set to return versus the Hammers later this week.

4-2-3-1 Everton Predicted Lineup To Face West Ham United

Defence

Jordan Pickford will play as Silva’s first-choice keeper once again despite conceding 13 goals in his past six starts in the English top-flight. Both Yerry Mina and Michael Keane will lineup at the heart of the Toffees backline as they look to put in an improved defensive shift versus Manuel Pellegrini’s men. They have so far been average at best, which goes to explain why the Merseysiders have conceded so many goals this season.

Seamus Coleman is suspended for this game after he picked up two yellow cards and got sent off against Burnley before the international break. Therefore, Djibril Sidibe is expected to line up in the right-back position. Lucas Digne will continue to operate as a creative force for Everton down the left flank. The French talent has created a lot of chances in the opposition half so he will be expected to deliver some telling crosses into the West Ham penalty box.

The Hammers attackers can be a real threat going forward after they scored 11 goals in eight league matches thus far. Silva would need his defenders to be at their best so that they can keep the away side at bay on Saturday afternoon.

Midfield

Andre Gomes and Fabian Delph will lineup as the anchormen as they look to sit deep and breakdown some of the West Ham attacks in midfield. Both players also need to take care of the ball and orchestrate some decent goal-scoring opportunities for the Toffees frontline. The talented trio of Alex Iwobi, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Richarlison will be tasked with providing adequate support to Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who will spearhead Silva’s attack upfront.

Sigurdsson has looked like a player out of form this season. He is in dire need of putting in a goal-scoring display this weekend which could help him kickstart his campaign.

Attack

Calvert-Lewin will lead the line for the Blues of Merseyside up top. He has netted three goals in his last three outings across all competitions which will give him a lot of confidence heading into this Premier League encounter.

Moise Kean will have to be content with a place on the Toffees bench and might get a chance to influence the game if Silva decides to call upon his services.
