The Hammers are in the midst of a woeful run of form that has seen them win just three of their last 15 league games.
And they have slumped down to 16th spot in the Premier League table, just one point clear of the drop zone.
The Toffees haven’t experienced a great season either in truth, and Carlo Ancelotti’s side sit in 11th spot, a distant 11 points adrift of the top four.
Both sets of fans are far from happy with their respective teams this season.
The West Ham faithful have become so disillusioned with the ownership of the club that there is a planned protest march organised for today prior to the match.
Hopefully that won’t affect the players’ performance on the pitch against Everton today.
Whatever happens, it should be an exciting game of football on display at the London Stadium, with both teams in need of all three points.
