Our prediction for this Premier League match:
There will be fireworks when West Ham United and Everton take on each other in a highly-anticipated relegation six-pointer. The Hammers have been performing below expectations in the 2022/2023 season, with the team collecting only 15 points in the process, but it seems as if they will not have a better chance than this to get back on course. Gianluca Scamacca is pushing for a start, whereas Maxwel Cornet should be the only absentee in the home team.
Meanwhile, the Toffees suffered a heart-breaking loss to Southampton at the weekend, and, as a result, boss Frank Lampard is under big pressure ahead of Saturday’s showdown. Anyhow, home win should be considered as the Goodison Park outfit experienced all sorts of problems at the back in the last league match. All Townsend, Garner, Patterson, and Keane are out of contention with injuries, speaking of the away side.
Highlighted Player (Saïd Benrahma):
Said Benrahma is an Algeria international who started his club career at Nice. The pacey winger made his Ligue 1 debut during the 2013/2014 season and after scoring 3 goals in 17 appearances for les Aiglons in the French top flight, he moved to the Championship team Brentford in the summer of 2018.
Said Benrahma was born in Ain Temouchent, Algeria on August 10, 1995 and it has to be noted that he played for the likes of Angers, Gazelec Ajaccio and Chateauroux on loan before joining the Griffin Park outfit.

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 campaigns.

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.
