West Ham United’s squad have been pictured training before their trip to Everton for tomorrow’s lunchtime kick-off.

A win for the Hammers will put them third in the table.

But there was no sign of pressure if pictures from the pre-Everton training session are anything to go by.

The meeting at Goodison Park in the lunchtime kick-off is fast becoming a crunch clash.

West Ham have been widely backed to challenge the top six after a good start to the season.

West Ham trip to Everton a crunch clash

Everton were another club many predicted would be jostling with the likes of the Hammers to gatecrash the established Premier League elite.

But Toffees boss Silva is fighting for his job after four consecutive Premier League defeats. According to the likes of The Telegraph, Silva must beat Manuel Pellegrini’s West Ham to keep his job.

The pressure is all on the hosts.

And that showed as cameras caught West Ham’s happy camp in top form on Thursday afternoon.

Happy Hammers as pictures emerge from training

In-form stars Andriy Yarmolenko and Sebastien Haller were enjoying themselves.

Even unfancied goalkeeper Roberto was all smiles as he gave a big thumbs up to the cameras.

Mark Noble, Pablo Fornals, Declan Rice, Issa Diop, Aaron Cresswell, Ryan Fredericks, Jack Wilshere and Arthur Masuaku were also caught on camera looking in relaxed and jovial mood.

West Ham fans will be hoping that translates into a confident performance on the pitch at Goodison Park.

The Hammers won 3-1 there last season.

West Ham supporters will feel the game could go one of two ways for their side.


Some will believe Everton are due a win and it seems West Ham are always on hand to oblige in these situations.

The more optimistic Hammers will be hoping the pressure on Silva and his team plays into their hands.

Here is a gallery of pictures from West Ham’s training session before the trip to Everton.
