West Ham United have been totally transformed under David Moyes and like last season, this season too they are bringing their A-game on the pitch.
Although they lost their previous Premier League game to Brentford still they are just five points off the top of the table. And they will get a chance to close this gap when they take on Everton on Sunday at Goodison Park.
West Ham are undefeated in their last 6 away matches in the Premier League but Everton are on a roll themselves(they’re three points ahead of the Hammers) meaning the away side will have to sweat it out if they wish to pick up a win.
Thankfully, Moyes has only a handful of injury concerns so he will be able to name his strongest side whereas Everton have a plethora of absentees so Benitez will be the one who’ll be under much more pressure.
West Ham United team news vs Everton:
The West Ham United manager is not likely to make too many unnecessary changes from the Brentford game so Fabianski will remain in goal and even the defensive line should remain the same.
Ogbonna will be partnered by summer signing Kurt Zouma in central defence with Aaron Cresswell operating as the left-back.
Vladimir Coufal had picked up a slight groin injury during the break but he should be fully fit in time to take on the Toffees on Sunday.
Declan Rice and Soucek are the obvious choices in defensive midfield with Benrahma playing as the attacking midfielder. The Hammers boss also has the option of using Manuel Lanzini as the No 10.

Nikola Vlasic has started only one game in the Premier League this season for West Ham United and he will have to be content with a place on the bench this weekend as well.
Jarrod Bowen and Pablo Fornals have made the wingers’ positions their own and they will be one of the first names on Moyes’ teamsheet. Michail Antonio will be leading the line.
West Ham United predicted line up vs Everton:
Predicted Starting line up: Fabianski; Coufal, Ogbonna, Zouma, Cresswell; Declan Rice, Soucek, Benrahma; Fornals, Bowen, Michail Antonio.
