Everton vs West Ham: Top Free Betting Tips

Everton will welcome West Ham to Goodison Park on Saturday, 2 March as the Toffees play their first match since their point deduction was reduced to six. The boost to their points tally has seen Sean Dyche's side move two positions higher in the table which should give them a spring in their step for this one. The Hammers will also be feeling good about themselves after beating Brentford 4-2 last weekend. Ahead of the match, check out our Everton vs West Ham predictions.

Match result prediction: Everton to Win

Everton came desperately close to ending their long winless streak last time out against Brighton but a last minute equaliser from the Seagulls meant they had to settle for a point. The Toffees played well at the Amex Stadium, however, and will be looking forward to this match now they are in less of a precarious position in the league table. West Ham's away record is poor (one win in their last seven matches on the road in all competitions).

Total goals prediction: Under 2.5 goals

Everton are rarely involved in high-scoring matches and we don't anticipate one here against a West Ham team that will be happy to sit back and play on the counter attack. Only one of Everton's last six matches in the Premier League have seen more than two goals scored while West Ham have only been involved in high-scoring games recently because their defence has been leaking goals for fun.

Correct score prediction: Everton 1-0 West Ham

We don't anticipate this being the most joyous return to Goodison Park for David Moyes on Saturday as his West Ham side look to finish inside the European places in the Premier League once again. Moyes may even have one eye on their upcoming Europa League round of 16 tie with Freiburg which only hampers their chances further this weekend.

Everton vs West Ham team news

Everton predicted lineup vs Chelsea

Everton's injury problems have cleared up in recent weeks with the return of Abdoulaye Doucoure ten days ago most welcome. Doucoure is still Everton's top scorer this season and you feel he is particularly important to their survival bid. Sean Dyche is still without Dele Alli, and there is now an expectation that he will miss the entire season. Danjuma is also ruled out but there is a chance that Andre Gomes will be passed fit.

Pickford – Coleman, Branthwaite, Tarkowski, Mykolenko – McNeil, Garner, Onana, Harrison – Doucoure – Calvert-Lewin

West Ham predicted lineup vs Man City

West Ham enjoyed a return to winning ways on Monday night against Brentford with the return of Lucas Paqueta unquestionably making a huge difference. The Brazilian had been missing for several weeks with an injury that stagnated the Hammers' attack. Kalvin Phillips is available again for this one after missing the match with Brentford due to suspension. The ex-Leeds man may have to settle for a place on the bench, though.

Areola – Coufal, Mavropanos, Zouma, Emerson  – Soucek, Alvarez, Ward-Prowse – Kudus, Bowen, Paqueta
