Everton will lock horns with West Ham United at Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon, hoping to pick up a positive result on their home turf. The Toffees will be coming into the match on the back of a 0-0 draw vs. Liverpool, whereas the Hammers recorded an encouraging 3-2 win against Silkeborg on matchday 2 of the Europa Conference League campaign.
Frank Lampard will probably opt for the 4-3-3 formation; however, he is expected to keep changes to a minimum for the upcoming clash.
4-3-3 Everton Predicted Lineup Vs West Ham United
Asmir Begovic is expected to start in goal for the upcoming home encounter. The Bosnian shot-stopper would hope to put up a strong performance and secure a clean sheet on Sunday.
Conor Coady and James Tarkowski might form the customary centre-half partnership at the heart of Everton’s backline as they look to prevent David Moyes’ men from finding the back of the net throughout the 90 minutes.
Full-backs Nathan Patterson and Vitaliy Mykolenko will continue to operate down the right and left-hand sides, respectively.
Alex Iwobi, Tom Davies and Amadou Onana will slot in as the holding midfielders; however, the latter could be assigned with more of a central role as his ball distribution could turn out to be decisive if the Toffees wish to dominate things at the centre of the park.
Idrissa Gueye will have to settle for a place on the bench but might be called on in the latter stages of the game if needed.
Anthony Gordon, Demarai Gray and Neal Maupay will form the attacking trio at the top of the pitch.
The trio will fancy their chances of finding the back of the net when they face off against the West Ham defence that has conceded six goals in their last five matches across all competitions.
