It wasn’t long ago that both West Ham and Everton hit their maximum, declaring their desire to fight for the 4th place “Champion of the League”. Now glorious clubs are hoping at least not to fly away from the Premier League – of course we have to win against a potential rival. Moyes experience against Lampard’s youth – whose arguments are more important? The service’s experts published their predictions for the match on January 21, 2023.
West Ham became the first big disappointment of the season
The Hammers have long had serious ambitions, and the owners have spared no expense on the players. But they only more or less proved themselves under Moyes, who was actually appointed in the “fire” order after Pellegrini’s dismissal. And he almost finished 4th in the first independent season! Yes, and the 2021/2022 draw brought a new entry to the European Cup, albeit with a step backwards. In the summer, they clearly wanted to add more by buying a lot of expensive newcomers. But it comes out very bad. Including in winter, after the break. A 0-1 to direct rivals Wolverhampton is their 12th defeat in 19 fights, and that has already pushed them back to 18th, which is the relegation zone.
Everton found themselves in the same stalemate a year later
The Butterscotch under Ancelotti struggled to return to the Champions League (where they only managed it once, just under Moyes). To no avail, but nevertheless Carlo left behind positive memories. Carletto’s development was expected to be taken forward by his successor, another experienced Varangian, Benitez. But he failed and a year ago Rafa was changed to Lampard to prevent him from being relegated to the Championship. This spring, Frank has succeeded, but the Englishman can’t take toffee even a little higher. Moreover, after October 1, there was only 1 win, and in the last 6 rounds, only 1 point at all. But what – they played 1-1 against Manchester City. But a draw with the “citizens” was followed by a home defeat to Brighton and a 2-1 defeat to direct rivals Southampton.
West Ham won both matches last season. However, in September Everton proved stronger – thanks to Mope’s only ball.
