Sports Mole previews Saturday's Premier League clash between West Ham United and Everton.

West Ham United will be looking to end a run of eight games without a win against Everton when they welcome David Moyes's men to Upton Park on Saturday afternoon.

The Hammers are enjoying a decent season and currently sit mid-table, but a poor run of form has seen them take just five points from a possible 18.

Sam Allardyce will be without George McCartney, Alou Diarra and Mohamed Diame, but Yossi Benayoun and Jack Collison face late fitness tests on their knee injuries.

Meanwhile, the Toffees are looking for a victory that could launch them back into the top four, but will have to do it without Marouane Fellaini.

The Belgian starts his three-game ban for a headbutt on Ryan Shawcross in last weekend's 1-1 draw at Stoke City.

Thomas Hitzlsperger is likely to feature against his old side, while Steven Pienaar may be deployed in a more central role.

Phil Neville has recovered from a knee injury, but is unlikely to be fit enough to start.

Recent form

West Ham: DLLWLD

Everton: LDDDWD

Possible lineups

West Ham: Jaaskelainen; Demel, Collins, Reid, O'Brien; O'Neil, Noble, Taylor, Nolan, Jarvis; Cole

Everton: Howard; Coleman, Jagielka, Distin, Baines; Osman, Hitzlsperger, Gibson, Oviedo; Pienaar; Jelavic

Sports Mole says: 2-2
