West Ham welcome Everton to the London Stadium in a crucial match at the bottom end of the Premier League table. Both sides have slipped into the drop zone in recent weeks, and neither can really afford to lose this relegation six-pointer.

Everton and West Ham occupy the bottom two spots in the Premier League form table, and the actual league table doesn’t look much brighter for either side. Everton sit in 19th position, whereas West Ham are in 18th with only goal difference separating the two. David Moyes and Frank Lampard are under increasing pressure, and the manager of the losing side could pay the ultimate price. 

The West Ham vs Everton live stream likely won’t offer the quality levels of a clash between two title challengers, but the stakes are equally as high. Even neutrals will want to tune in, and the good news is that the West Ham vs Everton live stream is being broadcast in multiple countries, but we’ll show you how to watch from anywhere in the world down below.

West Ham vs Everton preview

West Ham come into this crucial match in horrific form. The East London side last won in the Premier League back in October, and since the league restarted after the World Cup they have taken just two points from a possible 15. Their most recent defeat came away to fellow relegation battlers Wolves, a result which saw them slide into the relegation zone.   

Most alarmingly for manager David Moyes will be his side's inability to score. The Hammers have managed only 15 goals in 19 games. This paltry sum has them ranked second bottom for goals scored, only Wolves have managed fewer with 12. The signing of striker Danny Ings this week from Aston Villa will hopefully help West Ham in regard. 

Moyes’ position is under increasing pressure and there have been media reports that should he fail to mastermind a win here, he will pay with his job. Frank Lampard, his counterpart at Everton, is also in the hot seat. And this match is being widely tipped as a must-win for both men.

Everton’s form is similarly bleak. The Merseyside club also hasn’t won since October. While a draw away to reigning champions Man City in December was viewed as potentially something to build on, it was followed by a thrashing at the hands of Brighton, and a disastrous defeat against bottom-of-the-table Southampton last weekend.  

Everton have struggled in front of goal as well. They’ve also only managed 15 strikes in almost 20 games while conceding 26 goals in the same timeframe (West Ham have conceded 25). Even worse, the atmosphere around the club has turned increasingly toxic. Last week the club was forced to put out a statement explaining that key execs had been advised not to attend matches going forward due to a “real and credible threat to their safety and security.”

West Ham have enjoyed more than a decade in the Premier League, whereas Everton are one of only six teams never to have been relegated from the division. However, it’s looking increasingly likely that one of these historic clubs will be playing Championship football next season. Making the West Ham vs Everton live stream the very definition of a relegation six-pointer.
