Everton midfielder Andre Gomes back on the grass

Everton will look to pick up their first win in 2024 when they take on West Ham in the Premier League at Goodison Park on Saturday (2 March). 

The Toffees are yet to win a single game in the Premier League this year, and they need to win some games now.

Earlier this week, Everton got back four points after a successful appeal, and as a result, they have jumped to 15th in the Premier League table.

The Toffees will be set for another hearing and they could likely face another point deduction, although it won’t be too severe. But, even losing a single point could make a big difference.

Ahead of the match, Sean Dyche has confirmed that Andre Gomes is progressing well on his fitness. The 30-year-old, however, is back on the grass, but he is still not fit enough to take part in full training sessions.

“André has been back out on the grass with us. He’s going well,” said Dyche in his pre-match press conference.

Everton need to win at Goodison Park

Dyche admitted that Everton players never lost focus and motivation but on the back of their mind, it had started to creep in. However, now they have clarity and can play with more freedom.

Everton should have picked up a win against Brighton in the previous game but they conceded a late goal, which felt like a defeat.

The Toffees need to find ways to score goals. Dominic Calvert-Lewin is going through a horrible run of form, and probably it’s time Dyche must find another alternative route.

Calvert-Lewin is lacking in confidence at the moment, and he is not contributing enough. West Ham are heading into this game on the back of a strong 4-2 win against Brentford where Jarrod Bowen scored a hat-trick.

David Moyes will be looking to pick up a win against his former club. Everton fans want to see a spirited performance from Dyche’s side, and this could be the perfect game for them to finally get back to winning ways.
