Managers Under Pressure
Nothing highlights the importance of this fixture quite like a glance at the ‘next manager to leave' betting market. Hammers boss, David Moyes and his Everton counterpart, Frank Lampard, head this market and are both as short as Evens to be given the chop. You feel that the losing manager way well be shown the door before the weekend's out.
Ironically, if West Ham United part ways with David Moyes, the former Everton manager could be in line to replace Frank Lampard at Goodison Park.
West Ham United have earned just 15 points from their 19 matches in the league so far this season. The Hammers extended their winless run in the Premier League to seven matches at the weekend, losing 1-0 at fellow strugglers, Wolves.
Coincidentally, it's the same story at Everton; 15 points from 19 matches and no win in seven. The one positive you could take from Everton's run of results is that they've scored at least one goal in four consecutive league games.
West Ham United v Everton: Head-to-head
Recent matches between the sides have been fairly even. The last six head-to-heads have produced three wins apiece. Four of those six matches have ended 1-0, including at Goodison Park when the teams last met.
With four 1-0 results in the last six matches between West Ham United and Everton, another low-scoring affair could be on the cards. In the correct score market, a 1-0 West Ham win is available at 5:1, whilst Everton are 10/1 to win by the same scoreline.
Only Wolves have scored fewer league goals than West Ham United and Everton this season. Everything is pointing towards under 2.5 match goals at the London Stadium. At 4/6 there is real value in this bet.
In the seven league games West Ham United have played since last winning they have surrendered the lead on three occasions. We're not entirely convinced they have what it takes to hold on to a lead, which makes West Ham United to be leading at half-time and not win astonishing value at 12/1.
- West Ham United: 4/5
- Draw: 12/5
- Everton: 9/5
