After overcoming some scares this season, West Ham United have confirmed their Premier League status. However, it has been an underwhelming season overall, and the Hammers would want to finish it on a high.
West Ham are placed 15th in the table with 39 points, and they are undefeated in their last two games.
The Hammers managed a decent goalless draw against Manchester United at home on Thursday. The game against the Toffees comes too soon, and we expect David Moyes to bring in some changes on Sunday.
Everton have also picked up some form in the closing weeks of the season. The Toffees are without a defeat in their last five games, but in their last game, they could only manage a 1-1 draw with Southampton at home.
The Merseysiders are placed eighth on the league table with 49 points. A point more on Sunday will see them touch the 50-mark, which is not so bad for Sam Allardyce’s credentials considering he took the job in November.
Everton will certainly be hard to beat on Sunday, and we think both sides will settle for a draw in the end.
Earlier this season, Everton claimed a comfortable 4-0 win in the reverse fixture at Goodison Park.
