West Ham United and Everton go head to head in the Premier League this weekend and both these sides have brought in a new manager during the past couple of weeks.

While the Toffees have gone with Carlo Ancelotti at the helm, the Hammers have chosen to replace Manuel Pellegrini with David Moyes.

While Ancelotti has brought in a huge reputation with him at Goodison Park but it’s safe to say that the West Ham United manager is the one who’s made the immediate impact.

The Hammers have picked up wins against Bournemouth and Gillingham but Everton, on the other hand, managed to suffer an embarrassing defeat at the hands of a second-string Liverpool side it the FA Cup third round.

And according to Charlie Nicholas, West Ham United will take the game to Everton this weekend and it will be the Hammers who should come out on top after the 90 minutes.

The pundit wrote for Sky Sports: “What a cracking game. David Moyes, who I thought would get the Everton job, comes up against his old club once more.

“I have to be honest; I thought Everton fans were tremendously cruel to Moyes.

“He walks in the door at West Ham and everyone wonders how he will get on. He does have to prove a point and keep West Ham alive, but I did the Everton match and they only just deserved to win against Brighton.

“In the end, they were panicking.

“Carlo Ancelotti has picked up a couple of decent results but the scar and embarrassment of losing to Liverpool’s schoolboys still lingers. He will want to prove a point to Everton fans and really, he believes he should be back there.

“It looked as though it should have been his job, but they went with the fabulous Carlo Ancelotti and he is a different man.

“West Ham will be aggressive and get in their face. Everton are a talented bunch and they are an inconsistent bunch. I am going for narrow scorelines this weekend, so Jeff Stelling may be worried about the £250,000 jackpot going!”
