How Everton must line up when they face West Ham on Sunday
Everton will look to finish what has been a generally disappointing campaign on a high when they face West Ham United at the London Stadium on the final day of the Premier League season on Sunday.
The Toffees would have expected to challenge the top-six clubs following a big summer of spending, but a disastrous start under Ronald Koeman saw them battling towards the relegation zone instead, before Sam Allardyce came in and dragged them away from the bottom three.
Despite looking likely to finish the season in eighth position the Goodison Park faithful are not happy with the 63-year-old and his style of football and want change this summer, and they let their feelings be known by booing their team at half-time and full-time in their 1-1 draw at home to a struggling Southampton last weekend.
It seems more and more apparent that this could be Allardyce’s final match in charge of the Merseyside outfit – who were linked with a move for FC Porto coach Sergio Conceicao this week – despite the fact that his contract isn’t due to run out until next summer, and if that proves to be the case there will be a lot of relieved fans when the full-time whistle is blown in east London.
The former England boss made two enforced changes from the win against Huddersfield for the visit of Mark Hughes’ men last time out as Yannick Bolasie and Tom Davies replaced the injured duo of Theo Walcott and Wayne Rooney, and he could be considering making further alterations on Sunday.
