Welcome to our West Ham vs Everton preview, predictions and head to head analysis. West Ham are in sixth place in the league, equal on points with the 5th placed team. A win last weekend could have elevated them to 3rd place in the league, however, their 7 match unbeaten streak came to a grinding halt at Watford last weekend. They will want to get back to winning ways. Everton are in ninth place in the league. Last weekend they put aside two disappointing losses and thumped Sunderland 6-2 at home. Their away form this season has been quite good, with 2 wins, 2 draws and just 1 loss (to Arsenal). They will be looking to improve that away record.
