West Ham vs. Everton Preview (What To Know Before Betting)
West Ham vs. Everton
Still reeling from consecutive defeats in both the Premier League and the Europa League, West Ham United is in pursuit of a chance at redemption as they host Everton at the London Stadium this Sunday in the top flight.
David Moyes’s side was narrowly defeated 2-1 by Olympiacos in Thursday’s continental match, while the Toffees, who are currently mourning the loss of chairman Bill Kenwright, succumbed to Liverpool’s dominance in the recent Merseyside derby.
A blistering volley from Lucas Paqueta showcased the kind of skill that could have been the deciding factor in any match. However, for West Ham, the Brazilian’s exquisite strike against Olympiacos on Thursday only arrived after they had already conceded a pair of first-half goals in Piraeus.
West Ham vs. Everton
This unfortunate turn of events brought their impressive 17-game unbeaten streak in European competitions to an end.
The deadlock was shattered by Konstantinos Fortounis’s remarkable individual effort, with Rodinei’s cross creating confusion for Angelo Ogbonna and Alphonse Areola. Ogbonna extended his leg to clear the threat, inadvertently directing the ball into his own net.
What to remember – West Ham vs. Everton
The extended and disheartening return journey following the Europa League loss is likely to affect West Ham’s preparations for Sunday’s game. However, the inclusion of several rested players should help offset the adverse impact of Thursday’s match.
Although Everton is dealing with off-field distractions, they demonstrated the potential to challenge West Ham’s porous defense in last weekend’s somewhat unjust loss. It’s worth noting that Moyes’s team has yet to fail to score in a Premier League home match in 2023, and we have confidence that the Europa Conference League champions will regain their momentum.
