Six games into the season and Frank Lampard’s side are still looking for their first three points of 2022/23, after following up defeats to Chelsea and Aston Villa with four straight draws in the Premier League.
The Toffees held arch rivals Liverpool to a goalless draw at Goodison Park last time out thanks to a heroic display from Jordan Pickford, who made eight saves against the Reds, the most by a goalkeeper in a Premier League game this season and the most he has ever made in a Premier League game whilst keeping a clean sheet. Based on the placement of the shots he faced, England’s number also one prevented 1.83 goals and earned his side a much needed point.
West Ham, on the other hand, find themselves in the bottom three after scoring just three goals in their opening six fixtures, with no side finding the net fewer times than the Hammers so far this term. David Moyes’ men are also the only side in the division yet to score before half-time in 2022/23 and are on a run that has seen them lose seven of their last nine away games in the league.
The Hammers have won each of their last three Premier League games against Sunday’s opponents however, doing the double over the Toffees for the first time in the Premier League era last season.

Everton vs West Ham match stats
Everton’s last 11 Premier League games at Goodison Park has seen just 20 goals, with under 2.5 goals landing in nine of those 11 matches and the Toffees scoring 2+ goals on just two occasions. 10 of those 20 goals came in just two games, a 3-2 win over Crystal Palace and a 3-2 defeat to Brentford. West Ham have also scored the joint fewest goals in the Premier League alongside Wolves in 2022/23, so another low scoring game is expected here.
Neal Maupay had the perfect opportunity to mark his Everton debut with a goal and become an instant club hero against Liverpool, but it was not be after Alisson denied the French forward with a superb stop. The Toffees’ latest striker signing had five shots against their arch rivals and finished the game with an xG of 1.06, which was at least 0.8 more than any of his teammates
The striker has had four or more shots in three of his last four Premier League home starts for Brighton and Everton (4 vs. Tottenham, 6 vs. Norwich & 5 vs. Liverpool) and is expected to let fly once more against the Hammers.
