Taking The Michail

The 31-year-old Jamaican international should be far and away the most dangerous striker on the pitch. There won't be many others around to be fair.

Two teams with realistic hopes of gatecrashing the top six this season, meet at Goodison Park. Rafa Benitez deserves huge credit for the job he is doing at a club he was never meant to go to, and without either of his main strikers for most of the campaign to date.

But with Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison still missing, you wonder how sustainable it is to rely on the goals of Andros Townsend. We’re looking the other way in this one - a West Ham win with Antonio to score is a boosted 4/1 with Skybet.

Nobody in the Premier League is averaging as many shots per game (4.5) as the West Ham striker. He has 5 league goals from his six appearances and everything points to him having far and away his best goalscoring season of his career.

The Hammers are unbeaten on the road (W2 D1), and won here last season so the score/win price looks more than reasonable.
