West Ham travel to Goodison Park on Sunday to take on Everton in the Premier League.

In the 4pm kick-off, West Ham will be hoping to pick up their first points of the season.

Ahead of the game, here is the Moore Than Just a Club away day guide for Hammers fans.


Everton play their games in Liverpool, North West England. They compete in the Merseyside derby with Liverpool, who are located close by.

Liverpool is, of course, home to “scousers”, the Beatles and is well known for its two major football clubs.

How to get there

You can access Everton by car or public transport.

The nearest train station is Kirkdale, which is about one mile from the ground. Trains to Kirkdale leave from Liverpool Central Station.

If you are getting the bus from the city centre, you would go to Queen Square bus station. Then, jump on any of the 19, 20, 21, 310, 311 or 345 services.

The ground

Everton play at Goodison Park – an old-fashioned ground which has been their home since 1892.

Goodison Park houses nearly 40,000 fans and the away team is usually allocated around 3,000 tickets.

Away fans are located on one side of the Bullens Road stand, which has a side-on view. You can get a ticket in the upper or lower tier for the Everton game.

Food and drink

There are plenty of pubs that allow away fans in. Most travelling away fans would drink in the city centre before heading to the ground.

In the ground, Everton serve a “Scouse pie” for around £3.30.

The opposition

Goodison Park is a notoriously difficult trip for West Ham. The Irons have only claimed three wins there in the Premier League era.

The most recent win away at Everton was two seasons ago. Trailing 2-0 against ten-man Everton, Romelu Lukaku missed a penalty before a remarkable turnaround saw the Hammers triumph 3-2.

Dimitri Payet scored the late winner in that game.

For Sunday’s game, Everton are without some key players with Theo Walcott injured, Richarlison suspended and several other absentees.

The Toffees have a new manager this season in Marco Silva and are unbeaten in four, although only one of those was a win.
