David Gold makes a confident prediction about West Ham's trip to Everton

The West Ham co-owner has been previewing his side's visit to the Toffees.

West Ham United co-owner David Gold is confident his side can win at Everton on Saturday afternoon, according to the club's official website.

And Gold thinks the east London team are very hard to beat when they're at their best.

The co-owner is enthused that the Irons have so many players back from injury and fancies his chances ahead of Saturday's visit of Goodison Park.

Gold told the West Ham site in his 'From the Boardroom' column: "We are going away to Everton on Saturday and that is going to be tough. But there is no reason we cannot go up there and get something.

"Can we win? Yes we can. We are good enough and have good players.

"It was good to see Andy Carroll come on in the second half and great to see Diafra Sakho back in action. Our players are back and at our best we are hard to beat."

Heading into the game, West Ham are a good eight points ahead of Everton. Of their last 10 games, the Hammers have won six, also winning three of their last five.

Roberto Martinez's men have won just four of their last 10 - but three of those have come in their last four games.

Everton will have home advantage, which was crucial for West Ham during their 1-0 wins over Sunderland and Tottenham Hotspur. But Gold is right to be confident based on the east London club's current form - and the ability possessed within their squad.
