Predicted West Ham line-up to play Everton: Two changes from Bilic

Everton Goodison 3

Here is how we predict West Ham United and Everton will line up this weekend:

To be played on Saturday 5th March 2016 at 15:00. Venue: Goodison Park, Liverpool

Odds: Everton 3/4, Draw 13/5, West Ham 4/1

Everton welcome West Ham United to Goodison Park on Saturday with the Toffees looking to improve on their current position of 11th and the Hammers knowing they could climb into the top four if results go their way.

West Ham’s 1-0 victory against Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday evening means they are now just one point below fifth-placed Manchester United and fourth-placed Manchester City, and while manager Slaven Bilic has talked down the prospect of Champions League qualification it is definitely a possibility.

Everton won 3-1 against Aston Villa during the week and they will be looking to build on that against a Hammers side that have a great away record this season.

In early team news, Everton are without Tyias Browning while they have minor doubts regarding a whole host of players.

Tom Cleverley, Leighton Baines, Bryan Oviedo, Muhamed Besic and Darron Gibson have different ailments but they are all rated at 75 per cent to be ready if called upon.

As for West Ham, they are without James Collins, Sam Byram, Joey O’Brien, Winston Reid and James Tomkins while Enner Valencia is stepping up his own return to fitness but will not be ready for this clash.
