Everton v West Ham Predictions- What do the pundits say?

The Premier League resumes after a two week international break and West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini will be desperately hoping for a change in fortunes. His side have lost their first four games of the season, and this clash, away at Goodison Park, is shaping up to be a very important one, with Chelsea and Manchester United their next opponents after the Toffees.

Everton have won more games against West Ham than any other opponent in the Premier League.

What did the pundits have to say about West Ham’s chances at Goodison Park?

Mark Lawrenson: Lawro reckons Everton will do just enough to continue West Ham’s winless run, and predicts Marco Silva’s men to run out 2-1 winners.

Lawro’s celebrity opponent this weekend, actor Mark Wahlberg, thinks West Ham will get their first points of the season on Sunday afternoon, and has gone for a 1-0 win to Manuel Pellegrini’s side.

For what it’s worth, Lawro had predicted a win for West Ham against Wolves in Round 4, while his celebrity opponent had gone for a Wolves win.

Paul Merson: Merson reckons the absence of key players like Richarlison will hurt Everton, and has backed West Ham to draw 1-1 at Goodison Park.

Michael Owen: Owen reckons the “points will stay at Merseyside”, although he admits that Everton were disappointing in their last game against Huddersfield.

Summary

Lawrenson: Everton 2-1 West Ham
Wahlberg: Everton 0-1 West Ham
Merson: Everton 1-1 West Ham
Owen: Everton will win
