Everton vs West Ham live stream: How to watch Premier League fixture online and on TV today


Everton host West Ham United on New Year’s Day as the Premier League moves into 2021. The Toffees’ most recent match was due to be against Manchester City, but the postponement through Covid-19 concerns meant Carlo Ancelotti’s side missed the chance to go second with a win – and to play in front of fans, who will no longer be in attendance after Merseyside was moved into Tier 3 on Wednesday.

Even so, Everton can still keep the pressure on they local rivals and league leaders Liverpool by winning this game, which would again see them up into second place, while a draw would be good enough to move into third, behind Manchester United on goal difference.

Everton have won four on the spin of late and have kept three clean sheets in that run.

As for the Hammers, they drew with Southampton just prior to the turn of the year to make it four games without a win – yet the mood remains optimistic around David Moyes’ team, who sit in mid-table. A win will push them into the mix for European spots, level on points with each of Chelsea, Spurs, Man City and Saints – albeit having played up to three games more than those teams.

What is the team news?

Everton are still without Fabian Delph, Allan and Lucas Digne, while James Rodriguez is also confirmed as not back for this game. Richarlison is a doubt but may be rushed into action on account of the other absences.

West Ham’s only injury worry is Arthur Masuaku so David Moyes will likely revert to his strongest side.

Odds

Everton – 42/41

Draw – 11/4

West Ham – 31/10

Prediction

If Everton have Richarlison fit they should pose problems for the Hammers’ back line and could edge a tight game. Everton 1-0 West Ham
