Everton’s relegation boost

As the 2023/24 Premier League season continues, the question of who will be relegated to the Championship remains a mystery. Although Everton are still very much in the conversation, they have received a boost. After their draw with Brighton last weekend, the Toffees were just one point clear of the relegation zone, with Luton having a game in hand.

The draw extended Everton’s winless run to eight in the Premier League, with four defeats — though two of the losses came home and away against Manchester City. But the boost came when their 10-point deduction was reduced to six. Immediately, Everton jumped up to 15th, now five points clear of the bottom three. Crucially, there are now two teams between them and the relegation zone — though it’s worth noting there are reports of a second deduction coming. Nonetheless, it’s a time for Everton to be a bit more comfortable, and they will hope they can use this boost to end their winless run.

West Ham were also on a winless run in the Premier League. It wasn’t too long ago that the Hammers were in a very favourable position to secure at least Europa League football, even knocking on the door of the top four. Fans will have been dreaming following back-to-back wins over Man Utd and Arsenal.

However, since the 2-0 win over Arsenal just after Christmas, West Ham have been in free fall. The Hammers drew three consecutive games, against Brighton, Sheffield United and Bournemouth. They then lost three on the trot, with both Man Utd and Arsenal getting their own back — the latter in a 6-0 thrashing at the London Stadium. The third defeat was just as damning, losing 2-0 to relegation-battling Nottingham Forest. But, the Hammers finally got their first win of 2024 across all competitions last time out, beating Brentford 4-2 at home.

Jarrod Bowen to score anytime @ 15/8 by BetVictor

West Ham’s poor run coincided with Jarrod Bowen’s goalscoring struggles. The Englishman failed to score in seen Premier League games, but that run finally came to an end last timeout. Bowen was the hat-trick hero at the London Stadium against Brentford, taking his league tally for the season to 14. Seven of those goals have come away from home, including seven of his first eight in the campaign.

Despite West Ham’s position in the table, Everton are the slight favourites for this game. Although the Toffees are winless in their last four league games at home, three of those were draws, with the only defeat coming against Man City. At the same time, West Ham are winless in three on the road, with defeats to Man Utd and Nottingham Forest, alongside a draw with Sheffield United.
