‘Incredibly difficult’ – Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson backs its up as he predicts the Everton v West Ham end score…

Merson’s prediction, made on October 26 and reported by Sportskeeda, suggests that the Toffees will be defeated at the London Stadium on October 29, with West Ham prevailing 2-1. He highlights West Ham’s strong performances this season as the reason behind his prediction.

However, Merson acknowledges the unpredictability of Everton’s season. He points out that Everton can be inconsistent, losing to teams they are expected to beat at home while also upsetting higher-ranked sides on the road. He describes predicting their games as “incredibly difficult.”

Merson explains, “You never quite know what you’re going to get with the Toffees – they are like a bag of revels. One day, they’ll lose at home to a team they’re expected to beat, but weeks later, they’ll show up away from home against a side gunning for a place in the top four, making their games incredibly difficult to predict.”


He also highlights West Ham’s strength as a decent team this season and believes they are likely to secure a victory at home against Everton.

While acknowledging West Ham’s formidable performances, the article mentions that Everton, after a positive 3-0 win before the international break, would have aimed to avoid consecutive defeats. Their recent loss at Anfield was considered challenging, and their upcoming match against West Ham presents another difficult test. The article suggests that if Everton can replicate their defensive work from the previous derby and if Dominic Calvert-Lewin regains his form, they might pose problems for West Ham in the capital.
