West Ham XI vs Everton: Predicted starting lineup, confirmed team news, latest injury updates today

West Ham vs Everton – LIVE!

The Hammers will sense an opportunity to kickstart their Champions League qualification ambitions this afternoon.

The Hammers’ hopes of a Premier League top-four finish have taken a hit of late with injuries to key personnel and defeats to Newcastle and Chelsea, but a 2-1 win at Burnley last week kept them in the fight.

Leicester’s shock 4-2 home defeat to Newcastle on Friday night now means that there could well be two top-four places left to play for during the run-in, with David Moyes’ Hammers five points off a Champions League spot as things stand.

While that Leicester result boosts the Hammers’ hopes, Moyes knows they cannot realistically afford any more slip-ups in the final four games of the season - though Carlo Ancelotti’s Toffees could prove tricky customers on Sunday.

Prediction

The Hammers know this game is likely win or bust for their top four hopes, and will attack it as such.

As for the Toffees, it’s be a curious season. Given some big performances, they should be all rights be among the top-four contenders - but abject defeats elsewhere have cost them.

With West Ham having more to play for, expect a tight home win.

West Ham 3-2 Everton

West Ham team news

David Moyes must decide whether West Ham can afford to go all out today as they look to put on the pressure in the Premier League top four race.

Top four rivals Chelsea look odds-on for Champions Leaguw qualification after a 2-1 win at Manchester City, though Leicester’s shock 4-2 home loss to Newcastle blew the race wide open.

Moyes hinted in his Friday press conference that he may rotate the starting XI, which could be bad news for Said Benrahma despite a dazzling display against Burnley.
