Everton He will look to keep his perfect start to the 2020-21 season intact while hosting West Ham at Goodison in the EFL Cup on Wednesday. West Ham will hope to bring momentum from his 4-0 lead Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League while they took the Toffees in the round of 16.
Everton’s new midfielders with James Rodriguez, Abdoulaye Doucoure and Allan have all transformed the side and are currently well complemented by their strikers, Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
However, it remains to be seen how many first-team players Carlo Ancelotti will camp against the Hammers in the cup competition. The same goes for West Ham as they try to kick off with their newly found form after starting the season on a sad note with defeats back to back.
Everton are currently the favorites to advance to the quarter-finals. In view of the pace at which both teams have scored goals in the cup competition, we can see a goalfest on Wednesday.
