Masuaku On The Left, Ayew To Lead The Line – Strongest 4-2-3-1 West Ham Line-up To Face Everton

Predicted West Ham United Line-up To Face Everton In The Premier League

West Ham United have picked up just 2 points from their last 5 league games and the new manager David Moyes has a huge task in front of him. They were held to a draw by Leicester City at the weekend and are back in action just days later, as they face Everton – another team struggling at the bottom end of the points table.

Both teams are in desperate need of some momentum and one team might come out victorious, which could define their season. Playing away from home, West Ham will have to be at their best to take anything from this game.

Team News

The likes of Sam Byram, James Collins, Jose Fonte and Javier Hernandez remain on the injury list for David Moyes, who can recall Marko Arnautovic to the starting XI, after the former Stoke City star returned to training at the weekend.

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Manager: David Moyes

GK – Joe Hart

The Englishman has remained Moyes’ first choice in goal and should keep his place in the side.

RB – Pablo Zabaleta

With very few options in the squad, the manager should stick with veteran full-back Zabaleta at right-back for this game.

Pablo Zabaleta

CB – Winston Reid

The skipper of the side, Reid will hope that his side doesn’t really get tested by a misfiring Everton attack at the Goodison Park.

CB – Angelo Ogbonna

The Italian has been preferred by Moyes at the back and he should partner Reid in an unchanged partnership for West Ham.

LB – Aaron Cresswell

Arthur Masuaku will provide the manager with options at left-back but first choice full-back Cresswell should continue to start on the left wing.

Cheikou Kouyate

CM – Pedro Obiang

Adding stability to the midfield should be Obiang, who had a decent outing against the Foxes at the weekend.

CM – Chiekhou Kouyate

West Ham have a genuine chance of picking up some points against the Toffees and Kouyate needs to have a solid game to help them there.

RW – Marko Arnautovic

The versatile winger came back from an injury at the weekend and started the game against the Foxes. He should retain his place on the right-hand side of the attack.

CAM – Manuel Lanzini

The Argentine playmaker remains the creative force for West Ham and he must be kept quite for Everton to take anything from this clash.

Andre Ayew

LW – Arthur Masuaku

After a splendid performance at the weekend, Masuaku deserves to keep his place in the side, on the left-hand side of the attack.

ST – Andre Ayew

Though Carroll troubled the Leicester City defence, Ayew, who is recently back from an injury, will be a better fit for the Hammers and he can have a bigger impact against a struggling Everton defence in this game.

Here is how West Ham might line up:
