Will Pellegrini Ring In The Changes? | 4-2-3-1 West Ham United Predicted Lineup Vs Everton

West Ham United will travel to Goodison Park to clash heads with Everton on Saturday afternoon at the back of an unexpected 2-1 loss at home to Crystal Palace. The Hammers have made a decent start to this campaign so they would be confident about their chances of coming away with maximum points from Merseyside this weekend.

The Toffees are a troubled team with their manager, Marco Silva fighting to save his job. Hence, they could prove to be a stern test for the London outfit. Manuel Pellegrini will likely opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation with Sebastien Haller once again getting the privilege to lead the line up top.

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

Defence

Łukasz Fabiański has been ruled out for the remainder of this calendar year after he picked up a serious injury before the international break. Roberto will start in his place. Both Issa Diop and Angelo Ogbonna are expected to continue their defensive partnership at the centre of the West Ham backline. The talented duo will hope to keep things stable at the back when they face off against the Toffees this weekend. However, it won’t be easy as they will be up against in-form Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who has scored three goals in his last three outings for Everton.

Ryan Fredericks will look to link-up play going forward as he operates as the right-back. Aaron Cresswell will play on the other side in the left-back position. Both full-backs need to defend well and provide adequate support in the Everton half. Cresswell is a slight doubt for this game so Arthur Masuaku could feature as the left-back if he fails to recover in time for this clash.

Midfield

The tireless duo of Mark Noble and Declan Rice will operate as the holding midfielders. They will be expected to win back possession and launch fast attacks on the counter. The talented trio of Andriy Yarmolenko, Manuel Lanzini and Felipe Anderson will play just ahead of them as part of the East London club’s attack. 

All three players have put in some decent performances for the Hammers before the international break. Hence, they will pose a major threat to the Everton defence on Saturday afternoon.

Attack

Sebastien Haller will lead the charge for West Ham once again as he aims to work hard by running the channels and hopefully, also by scoring a goal or two during the game. The French striker has lacked consistency in terms of goal-scoring this season, but his performances have impressed a lot of people as he is always willing to go that extra mile for the benefit of his team.
