Everton vs West Ham: Goals galore expected at Goodison

Kick-off: 1400, 17/10/2021

Stadium: Goodison Park

TV: Sky Sports Main Event

Everton shade favouritism over West Ham for this clash between two of the Premier League’s most exciting sides this season.

Only Liverpool and Chelsea have scored more top-flight goals than the Hammers, while the Toffees are only one behind United, with 13 to their name.

We’re expecting plenty of action in this one and both teams to score in the first half kicks off our Everton vs West Ham betting tips at 3/1.

A Look At Everton’s Betting Odds

Everton have made a fine start to life under the stewardship of Rafa Benitez and currently sit in fifth, just two points off top spot.

Some would argue the Toffees’ record should be even better and they were unlucky not to take all three points from their trip to Old Trafford two weeks ago.

The resurgent Andros Townsend grabbed their goal in the 1-1 draw with Manchester United, as the men from Merseyside had the better of the chances over the course of the 90 minutes.

Unbeaten at home this season, Everton have already fired in eight goals at Goodison Park and can expect to add to that tally this weekend.

Two of the three games played at their famous home stadium so far have witnessed four goals, so looking at the Everton vs West Ham odds, we’ll back that trend to continue and go over 3.5 in total at 19/10.

Last Everton line-up: Pickford, Keane, Digne, Mina, Godfrey, Allan, Townsend, Doucoure, Gray, Gordon, Rondon.

Everton remain without injured forward duo Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison. Andre Gomes (calf) and Fabian Delph (shoulder) are also out but Seamus Coleman, Alex Iwobi and Lucas Digne are all available.

A Look At West Ham United’s Betting Odds

The Hammers set off like an express train, banging in eight goals in their first two games, but things have plateaued a little since and they have only won one of their last five in the league.

David Moyes’ side are now also met with the challenge of combining domestic efforts with European competition and the strength in depth of United’s squad could be tested in the upcoming months.

They suffered a 94th-minute heartbreak in their fixture with Brentford two weeks ago when a point was snatched away from them, but now look to maintain their unbeaten away record.

Michail Antonio is responsible for over a third of West Ham’s league goals this term and could add to his tally here.

We like the 3/1 about him being the Hammers’ first goalscorer as our final Everton vs West Ham prediction.

Last West Ham line-up: Fabianski, Cresswell, Zouma, Coufal, Ogbonna, Fornals, Soucek, Rice, Antonio, Bowen, Benrahma.

Moyes said he would make a late check on a couple of unnamed players after they returned from the international break with knocks. Ryan Fredericks could return after being sidelined with a groin issue.
