West Ham United v Everton

28th March 2019, 22:46 by Warren Ashurst

The London Stadium is the venue for ninth against 11th on Saturday evening, when West Ham play host to Everton.

The Hammers go into the game unbeaten in their last seven home games in all competitions, including a 4-3 success over Huddersfield prior to the international break.

West Ham have won the last two meetings between the sides, which includes a 3-1 success at Goodison Park in September, and go into this fixture two points and two places ahead of their opponents.

Manuel Pellegrini is still having to deal with a lengthy injury list, with Samir Nasri the latest concern for the Hammers boss. Pellegrini admits the Frenchman may not feature after picking up a minor calf injury.

West Ham are still without Andy Carroll, Jack Wilshere, Andriy Yarmolenko, Carlos Sanchez and Winston Reid, but Manuel Lanzini is expected to feature and should be fresh after not featuring for Argentina in their recent friendlies.

Everton have also had their injury issues this season, with Yerry Mina the latest problem for Marco Silva. The centre-back suffered a hamstring injury, described by his manager as "serious", during Colombia's international friendly with South Korea.

There is some better news though for the Toffees, with Silva revealing that Lucas Digne "looks in condition to play", while the experienced Phil Jagielka is also back in contention.

West Ham are looking to complete a league double over Everton, something they have never achieved during the Premier League era.
