Everton will take on West Ham at Goodison Park in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.
“You have to expect goals here, and plenty of them – Everton bagged another three at Villa on Tuesday night – and I just favour the home side to win a lively game 3-2,” Owen wrote on Colossusbets.com.
Former Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jamie Redknapp has also backed Everton to pick up all three points from the game against West Ham courtesy of a 2-1 victory.
“West Ham have spent a lot of energy in midweek against Tottenham, brilliant result for them, but I think Everton with Barkley, Lukaku as well, will just edge this one,” said Redknapp on the Sky Sports Now show on Sky Sports News HQ on Friday morning (March 4).
Playing at home will give Everton an advantage, and the Toffees will fancy their chances of picking up all three points.
West Ham are in good form at the moment, tough, and the win against Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday evening is certainly going to increase their confidence.
The Hammers have a chance of finishing in the top four of the Premier League this season, and Slaven Bilic’s side will be determined to win at Goodison Park.
Everton are 11th in the Premier League table at the moment, while West Ham are currently sixth in the standings.
