West Ham United are due to face off against Everton in a Premier League clash at Goodison Park on Saturday.

The Hammers may be playing away but they will fancy their chances of beating the Toffees, who are currently in poor form.

Everton boss Marco Silva is under fire as they Merseysiders have lost their past four Premier League games and find themselves in the relegation zone.

In good news for West Ham, they will have Declan Rice available for the game, according to a report which was published by Sky Sports. 

This comes after the Hammers player struggled with a virus while he was on international duty with England.

Goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski is set to be out until next year after having undergone surgery on a hip injury.

West Ham duo Winston Reid and Michail Antonio are also still out of action due to their long-term injuries.

West Ham won the corresponding fixture last season 3-1. Should they win on Saturday, it will mark the first time that they would have claimed successive away victories against the Toffees since March 1930.

West Ham have however not been in exactly great form at home this season.

Both of their Premier League defeats to date have been at the London Stadium.

West Ham are currently looking good overall even though they lost their last game against Crystal Palace.

The Hammers can certainly beat Everton if they put their minds to it and especially if in-form Sebastien Haller continues to deliver the goods up front.

The absence of Fabianksi will take a toll on West Ham but fortunately, Everton’s attack has not really looked potent so far this season.
