Everton hosts West Ham United in round 8 of the English Premier League. The match will be played on Sunday, October 17th at Goodison Park (Liverpool)
In the summer, Everton underwent some changes. Coach Carlo Ancelotti accepted the offer to head Real Madrid without hesitation. The place of the Italian specialist was taken by Rafael Benitez, whose last club in England was Newcastle United. So far, things are going well. The Toffees are on the 5th line of the Premier League standings and are on the same level with the leading group in terms of points scored. Due to the high density, the situation at the top of the table may change at any time. Before the break for the matches of the national teams, the Blues beat Norwich City (2-0) and took points from Manchester United at Old Trafford (1-1).

David Moyes had a successful previous season at the helm of West Ham United. The Scotsman continued to work with the Londoners. The core of the team has been preserved. Moreover, the Hammers spent a substantial amount on purchases during the transfer window. For Kurt Zouma and Nikola Vlašić, the club paid a total of 65 million euros. The French defender immediately became an important player in the system of Moyes. The Croat is still adapting and does not play full matches. The Irons are now playing on three fronts at once. Everything is good in the Europa League — six points earned, four goals scored, and zero goals conceded. In the EFL Cup, West Ham beat Manchester United in the 1/16 finals. As for the Premier League, the Hammers are in the middle of the standings. They started the new season well, but the misfires appeared when the calendar became more complicated.
We expect at least three goals in the upcoming game. West Ham is number one in arranging goal extravaganzas in the current Premier League. Over 2.5 goals scored were recorded in six out of seven rounds (86%). Everton is fifth in the league in terms of this indicator — 4/7 (57%). After the games of the national teams, one should hardly expect zeroes on the scoreboard or reliable play of defenders. Both teams have good attacking lines. We are waiting for high production.
Prediction for the match: Over 2.25 goals scored
