Sutton’s Hammers v Toffees sneaky feeling


Chris Sutton

Chris Sutton really doesn’t appear to have a great deal of faith in West Ham .

It’s now been three weeks since he has tipped us for a win  and once again the Mark Lawrenson’s successor at the BBC website reckons we may not get the three points we really need.

Beyond saying we are a balanced side and well organised he reckons that Everton have the where withal to get at least a point from us.

To be fair Sean Dyche as manager has been doing a decent job in difficult circumstance at Goodison Park after being tipped as a possible replacement for our manager at one stage.

He has them in 16th place right now but let’s be honest, at our best we really should have the drop on them at the London Stadium.

Sutton see it differently and in their striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin believes they have a striker who can make us suffer.

Sutton declares: I just have a sneaky feeling that Everton are going to get something, especially with Dominic Calvert-Lewin fit and looking sharp.

Calvert-Lewin has obviously had a lot of injuries but I am not going to apologise for admiring him. Everton’s season depends on him, and he can definitely help them get a point here, for starters.

West Ham are a well-balanced side and Everton fans will know very well how organised teams are under David Moyes, but I can see the Toffees scrapping this one out for a draw.

Sutton’s prediction: 1-1
