West Ham finds joy again
West Ham is in poor form with a series of 3 consecutive unwinning matches in all competitions. Welcoming Everton is an opportunity for “The Hammer” to find joy again. The reason is because in both times they received the Port City team at home in the Premier League, coach David Moyes’s team won.
According to Sportmole writer Devesh Jaganath, West Ham is not playing well, but Everton is no better. Welcoming an opponent who has just lost 2/3 of their past matches is a good opportunity for The Hammers to regain the feeling of victory.
