Everton v West Ham United: Match Preview

David Moyes in front of Everton fansTeam News

David Moyes will be without club captain Phil Neville (knee) for his final game at Goodison Park as Everton manager. Otherwise the Toffees have a clean bill of health.

After three games out with a groin complaint James Tomkins could return for West Ham. George McCartney (hamstring) won’t play again this season. 

David Moyes pre-game…“I wasn’t planning on leaving. My contract was running out but we were planning for pre-season. All we’ve ever done here is keep planning. People said it (the deal) was sorted a month ago but that’s completely wrong. I have to be honest and say ‘no’. The chance to succeed Ferguson was too momentous an opportunity to turn down

Sam Allardyce pre-game…“In terms of the last home game of David’s reign as Everton manager, it will be an emotional affair for him. But I’m sure, knowing David as well as I do, that he’ll be professional enough and calm enough to control his emotions and do his very best to prepare the team to go and win. So I don’t expect any favours whatsoever.”

Match Statistic: Everton have failed to score in their penultimate game of the season for three seasons in a row.

Prediction: Everton 3-0 West Ham
