Our football match prediction:
West Ham United have been having their ups and downs this season, but, as things stand now, they are likely to secure the Premier League survival. The Hammers sit in 13th place in the standings ahead of Matchday 34 and they are nine points clear of the relegation zone. Following a 1-0 win over Swansea City, the capital club played out a 2-2 draw with Sunderland at the weekend, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in Saturday’s football match against high-flying Everton. West Ham were beaten by Ronald Koeman’s troops in the reverse fixture at Goodison Park and, no doubt, the hosts are hungry for revenge. The Toffees outplayed Burnley (3-1) in their last home fixture, but seeing that their away record is anything but good, we predict that the two teams will share the spoils at London Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
Highlighted Player (Andre Ayew):
Andre Ayew is Ghanaian footballer who plays for Premier League side West Ham United as a winger. Ayew played for Olympique Marseille from 2007 to 2015 and he scored 44 goals in 160 appearances for the Stade Velodrome outfit. He won two Coupe de la Ligue trophies with Marseille (2011, 2012), but he failed to clinch the Ligue 1 title with OM. In 2015 Andre Ayew joined Swansea City on a free transfer and it has to be noted that he scored 12 goals in 34 league appearances for the South Wales outfit. At the end of the season the Ghanaian footballer signed a three-year deal with fellow Premier League team West Ham United for a club record fee of £20.5 million. Andre Ayew won the FIFA U-20 World Cup with Ghana and he participated in the Africa Cup of Nations final on two occasions with the Ghanaian national football team (2010, 2015). However, he failed to win the prestigious trophy with the Black Stars. His brother Jordan Ayew plays for Aston Villa as a striker.
Highlighted Team (Everton):
Everton are one of the two Merseyside giants that were formed back in 1878, with the club holding a long-standing rivalry with Liverpool. Everton have participated in the English top flight for a record 113 seasons, with the team competing in the English second tier in just four camaigns. The Toffees play their home matches at Goodison Park, the stadium that was opened in 1892. Everton have won the national championship nine times, with the team winning their last domestic trophy back in 1987. The Toffees have clinched five FA Cup trophies as well and it has to be noted that a victory over Manchester United in the 1994/1995 FA Cup final helped the team win their last title in the prestigious competition. Everton and Liverpool face each other in the Merseyside derby and the clash between the two local rivals has been called the Merseyside derby since 1955. In the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign Everton were hammered by Liverpool (0-4) at Anfield.
