West Ham 0-0 Everton LIVE! Premier League match stream, latest score and goal updates today
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.
We have Jack Rosser at the London Stadium.

It’s been a sleepy start in east London and West Ham were caught napping there. They’re not a side who press with intensity every week some pressure on Godfrey there would have helped.
It was far too easy for the defender to play the ball through for Calvert-Lewin, who had made a fantastic run. The Burnley goal on Monday woke the Hammers up, lets see how they respond.
24min: So easy for Everton!
Godfrey spots Calvert-Lewin’s run and the striker rounds Dawson and beats the keeper.
21min: West Ham starting to get up to pace. Lingard has a pop from distance, but it’s blocked away from danger.
17min: Neither team have really clicked yet. Everton still on top but doing very little with the ball.
West Ham are yet to really settle here with Everton pressing them relentlessly on the ball.
Lanzini could be the key to asserting some sort of control over the visitors, the midfielder was fantastic against Burnley and Moyes will be looking to him dictate things once more.
7min: Three corners in quick succession for Everton, but none are of big concern to Szczesny. Wasteful.
4min: A tame start here. Everton seeing more of the ball, which was perhaps to be expected.
Here we go!
The teams are out. It’s almost time.
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.
