Everton will lock horns with West Ham United at the London Stadium as they focus on grinding out a result away from home. The Toffees suffered a poor 4-0 defeat against Crystal Palace in the FA Cup before the international break which has drained their confidence ahead of this league clash in the English capital.
Frank Lampard could set his players up in a 3-4-3 formation and might opt for a few tweaks to his first XI for this game. Donny van de Beek and Demarai Gray could play from the start as Lampard looks to select a strong team this weekend.
3-4-3 Everton Predicted Lineup Vs West Ham United
Jordan Pickford will function in between the sticks for the Merseyside club after shipping in four goals versus the Eagles in his last appearance. Everton could lineup with a back three of Mason Holgate, Michael Keane and Ben Godfrey as they try to keep a good defensive shape inside their half this weekend.
Jarrad Branthwaite will have to be content with a place on the bench as he provides cover for the centre-back positions.
Donny van de Beek and Abdoulaye Doucoure could operate as the holding midfielders as they focus on giving a good account of themselves collectively at the centre of the park.
Jonjoe Kenny will fill in as the left wing-back while Seamus Coleman looks to put in an energetic shift on the right flank.
Alex Iwobi and Vitaliy Mykolenko will be available for selection on the bench as they wait for their opportunity to shine in the second 45 minutes if needed.
Demarai Gray could get the nod to function as the left-winger while Anthony Gordon hopes to impress from the right. Richarlison will lead the charge for the Toffees on the attacking end of the field. The Brazilian striker has to figure out a way to cause a few headaches for the West Ham centre-backs this weekend.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin will be named on the bench and might come on to influence the game in the final quarter of the match if needed.
