On Sunday, Everton will make their way to the London Stadium to face West Ham United in the top tier, a team that has been struggling after suffering consecutive defeats. David Moyes’s team experienced a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Olympiacos in their recent continental match on Thursday. Meanwhile, the Toffees, who are currently mourning the loss of chairman Bill Kenwright, recently conceded to Liverpool’s supremacy in the Merseyside derby.
Sean Dyche will set his players up in a 4-4-2 formation and will need to make a single change to the starting XI after Ashley Young picked up a red card in the Merseyside derby.
4-4-2 Everton Predicted XI Vs West Ham United
Jordan Pickford will operate in between the sticks for the Merseyside club after shipping in two goals in his last outing. James Tarkwoski will form the customary centre-half partnership with Jarrad Branthwaite at the heart of Everton’s backline as they look to keep things solid at the back during the game.
Nathan Patterson will fill in as the right-back while Vitaliy Mykolenko looks to catch the eye on the other side as the left-back. Both of them would need to be compact defensively and get forward to create more chances from the wide areas.
Michael Keane will provide cover for the centre-back positions on the bench.
Amadou Onana and James Garner will anchor the midfield for the Toffees as they try to keep possession from the Hammers at the centre of the park. Abdoulaye Doucoure will play as the advanced attacking midfielder just ahead of them as he tries to create enough chances for his side to win this away encounter.
Dwight McNeil will look to stretch the pitch on the left flank while Jack Harrison remains focused on giving a good account of himself as the right-winger.
Idrissa Gueye will be available for selection on the bench as he waits for his chance to influence the game in the second half if needed.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin will lead the charge for the Merseyside club up top. He will have to figure out a way to be more clinical in front of the opposition goal to secure a victory in this contest.
Arnaut Danjuma and Beto will be named on the bench and might come on to make an impact in the final quarter of the game if needed.
