Premier League: West Ham v Everton match preview
A look ahead to this week’s Premier League fixture at Upton Park
Friday 20 September 2013
Romelu Lukaku could make his debut for Everton against West Ham after being ineligible against parent club Chelsea last weekend.
Sam Allardyce admitted during the week that West Ham had tried to sign Lukaku during the summer, but the player opted to go out on loan to Everton on deadline day.
West Ham are still struggling in attack following the news that Andy Carroll faces more time on the sidelines with a foot injury. Striker Mladen Petric has been brought in on a free, but lacks match fitness, so Modibo Maiga is set to continue up front for the Hammers.
