Kevin Campbell predicts Everton will lose in clash v West Ham

We’re delighted to welcome former Everton striker Kevin Campbell as our exclusive columnist. Each week the former Toffees captain will be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Goodison Park…

Kevin Campbell predicts that West Ham will overcome Everton at the London Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Everton were underwhelming when they faced Aston Villa last week in spite of their determination to keep their European dreams alive, while West Ham have been impressive in recent months.

David Moyes’ team are close to securing European football ahead of next season and the Hammers won’t want to slip up against an out of form Everton side.

Speaking exclusively to Goodison News, Campbell explained that West Ham will likely prove too much for Everton given their recent impressive run in the Premier League.

Campbell said: “I’ll be honest, I know Everton’s away form is a lot better than their home form, but I think their form in general hasn’t been great of late.

“While West Ham look like they’re really going for it. They look inventive, they look sharp, they look smart and full of pace; I think it could be a bad day at the office.

“I’m going to go with West Ham in this one, 2-1.”

Everton’s recent run of form has been disappointing and it has left them with little room for error as they chase down the final European spots.

West Ham are in a race of their own, with the Champions League still within touching distance, and that means they will be just as motivated as Carlo Ancelotti’s men.

It’ll take some doing for Everton to overcome the Hammers, especially in the absence of James Rodriguez, and the Italian will hope his side will give their all.
