Michael Owen looks ahead ahead to Saturday’s Premier League clash between West Ham United and Everton at the Boleyn Ground.

Former Manchester United and Liverpool striker Michael Owen has predicted on Betvictor.com that Everton will win against West Ham United away from home in London this weekend.

The Hammers will host Everton at the Boleyn Ground in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon, and Owen has backed the Merseyside outfit to pick up all three points.

“This should be a cracker and I expect to see goals,” the former England international wrote on Betvictor.com.

“Everton have a good recent record at the Boleyn Ground winning six of their last seven in the PL and they might just shade it although the Irons look likely to be boosted by the return of the outstanding Winston Reid to the centre of their defence.”

A footnote added: “Michael’s recommendation: Everton to win and both teams to score at 19/5.”
