Everton vs West Ham - The Predictions

Sky make much of the fact that Everton need this win to catch up with Liverpool in fourth place, which will set the Toffees up for the Merseyside derby next weekend. Sky believe that Andy Johnson is almost certainly out of the game. Tim Cahill (hip) remains a major doubt, but Manuel Fernandes has overcome a groin problem and could figure.

Sky predicts a 1-0 loss for West Ham

Setanta think Everton lack options up front which could seriously curtail their game. With Cahill and Fernandes also looking uncertain they don't think they have goals from midfield either.

Setanta predicts a 1-1 draw.

Lawro seems to have been sacked (or has taken the weekend off). Damn Lawrenson managed to sneak back into broadcasting house. And he brings another classic Lawro - by claiming that West Ham are not good on the road - when nearly half our points this season have come from away games.

Lawrenson predicts a 2-1 loss for West Ham.

Everton v West Ham 1715 GMT

With Liverpool's difficult fixture list coming up, Everton know this is a game they must win to keep up the pressure on their Merseyside rivals.

West Ham won last week to stop a bad run but they're not great on the road so I think Everton will edge this.

Verdict: 2-1

Thanks Lew - for some reason I couldn't find them before.

I don't think Lawro watches any of the games. He makes generalizations and then picks a loss for whomever is lower in the table.

And I love that his predictions have to be dictated to someone. Seriously, couldn't take the time to type up a 100 words or less prediction?
