Everton predicted starting XI - new Richarlison role and formation amid THREE changes vs West Ham

Everton take on West Ham United at the London Stadium aiming to ease their Premier League relegation woes.

Everton bid to claw further out of the Premier League relegation battle when they travel to West Ham United today.

The Toffees crashed out of the FA Cup in sobering fashion before the international break when beaten 4-0 by Crystal Palace in the quarter-finals.

But beforehand, Frank Lampard’s side moved four points clear of the drop zone with a 1-0 defeat of Newcastle United.

On Saturday, Everton were given a helping hand as 18th-placed Watford and 19th-placed Burnley were beaten by Liverpool and Manchester City respectively.

So if the Blues could get anything from their trip to West Ham, who are seventh, it would be a big bonus.

Lampard will be without the suspended Allan at the London Stadium, while Fabian Delph (thigh) and Yerry Mina (quad) are still sidelined.

But Everton have had the international break with the majority of the squad to get players up to speed.
