West Ham United is ready to entertain their home fans come Saturday 30th March 2019 when they host Everton. The match which will be played at the London Stadium starting from 17.30GMT will be an entertaining one owing to the fact that both teams are fighting to finish among top 10.
After a marvelous come-from behind to defeat the rock-bottom Huddersfield Town 4-3, West Ham is ready to prove that such a victory was not sheer luck but hard work. After scoring a brace on substitution, Chicharito will be the main man to watch has he looks forward to make his home fans happy. The Hammers are currently at number 9 in the table standings.
The Toffees also come into the match with some pride having humbled Chelsea 2-0 in their last premier League action. However, their away record is not all that impressive. It is therefore going to be an uphill task for them to emerge with points from the London Stadium.
The Hammers have made their London Stadium a fortress over the years. They are expected to extend this good record this weekend. Based on Everton’s away record and West Ham’s performance so far, we find great value in putting our money for West Ham to collect all the three points during the fixture. It is worth noting that West Ham won their first leg match of the season at Goodson Park way back in September.
