Rooney to start, Walcott out – Strongest 4-2-3-1 Everton line-up to face West Ham United in Premier League

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

With a lot of reports surrounding Wayne Rooney’s future at Everton, the Toffees head into Sunday for the last game of the season, looking to finish on a high. The player will most definitely start the game and bid farewell to the Premier League while West Ham present a challenge after drawing against Manchester United.

Everton should stick to a 4-2-3-1 line-up spearheaded by Cenk Tosun. Allardyce should just let Rooney play up front for one last time.

Probable Everton starting XI

Manager: Sam Allardyce

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Jordan Pickford (Goalkeeper)

Fresh from winning Everton’s player of the year award, the Englishman will look to finish on a high and set the bar for the next season as well.

Phil Jagielka (RCB)

The ageing Everton captain could be playing his last season for the team if there is a major reshuffle next year and he’ll look to stop Arnautovic up front.

Michael Keane (LCB)

The youngster has had a decent season at the back and knows he will have to work extra hard to stop the dual threat of Carroll and Arnautovic.

Seamus Coleman (RB)

Coleman is Everton’s star at right-back and he’ll push forward and link up to get in those crosses to Tosun.

Leighton Baines (LB)

The veteran left-back will look to continue his usual job, moving up to help the team find a goal.

Morgan Schneiderlin (CM)

Will have to work extra to support the backline whilst also stopping the likes of Kouyate and Noble in the midfield battle.

Idrissa Gueye (CM)

Gueye will look to continue his relentless box-to-box work and try to contribute defensively against a strong West Ham attack.

Yannick Bolasie (RW)

Bolasie and his bag of tricks will need to come to the fore for Everton’s last game of the season and he’ll look to nail down a spot for next season.

Wayne Rooney (CAM)

Rooney should play just behind Tosun in a game that could be his last in the Premier League.

Nikola Vlasic (LW)
