Whilst Everton still have an outside chance of finishing in the top four this season, West Ham United continue to look over their shoulder in the Premier League table.
It would take some collapse from this position for the Hammers to be relegated, although defeat against Everton at the London Stadium on Saturday afternoon would leave Slaven Bilic’s side vulnerable to the teams below them.
West Ham have struggled to keep strikers fit all season, but in Romelu Lukaku, Everton have the leading marksman in the division this season, with the Belgian international scoring finding the back of the net on 24 occasions in England’s top flight this term.
Everton will also enter the match having won four of their last six in the league, whilst West Ham have lost five of their last seven during a difficult period for the London outfit.
On Friday, West Ham’s official Twitter account posted a tweet asking supporters to ‘make their predictions’ for the clash at the London Stadium this weekend.
There was not a great deal of confidence among the home fans, however, with many predicting that Lukaku would register in an Everton win.
Less than 2️⃣4️⃣ hours to go!
