Everton face off against West Ham in a Premier League clash at Goodison Park on Saturday afternoon.

The Toffees head into the clash in the relegation zone following a paltry start to the season.

One could argue that Everton manager Marco Silva may be sacked if they lose their clash against the Hammers.

The Toffees head into the clash in poor form after having lost their previous four Premier League games.

Everton defender Djibril Sidibe, who is currently on loan with the Goodison Park outfit from Monaco, could be set to be handed his first Premier League start of the season, according to a report which was published by BBC Sport.

The report added that the versatile midfielder Fabian Delph is a doubt for the game due to injury, while Cenk Tosun and Jean-Philippe Gbamin are almost certain to miss out.

In spite of their poor form, Everton will fancy their chances of winning against the East Londoners.

The two sides at least on paper are very similar in terms of quality, many would argue that the Toffees actually have the edge over Manuel Pellegrini’s Hammers side on paper.

If Everton do lose the game, Silva will be judged negatively as the Hammers are a side whom they cannot be excused for losing against especially considering their current situation.

The Toffees need to tighten up defensively as well as in attack.

Everton have failed to score in four out of their last six Premier League games. They cannot continue to solely rely on Richarlison and Gylfi Sigurdsson for creativity in the final third.
