Comedy Double Act
With all due respect, these are two big clubs embarrassing themselves. Everton have conceded at least 2 goals nine times in a row while West Ham are winless in six league fixtures.
Predicting a winner between two sides in so much disarray seems like a thankless task so let’s dodge that one and back over 3.5 goals in the match again at a best price of 11/4 with WilliamHill. It paid off when Everton travelled to Southampton at the weekend.
The last 5 Toffees’ games in all competitions have produced 23 goals. West Ham have calmed slightly since David Moyes arrived but we’re still looking at the side with the joint second-worst defensive record in the Premier League having conceded 26.
Everton are the only side worse at the back having seen 28 goals bulge their net in their 13 top flight outings.
The news is that Sam Allardyce might take the reins at Goodison Park today but he surely won’t have time to make an impact this evening.
David Unsworth will be desperate to go out as caretaker with a win while Moyes will see this as a golden opportunity for his first on his old stomping ground. That means two sides going for it and the likelihood of more defensive calamities.
