Mark Lawrenson states his prediction for West Ham v Everton

BBC pundit Mark Lawrenson predicts West Ham’s game vs Everton.

What would have been a late equaliser was disallowed for handball, because those are the laws of game – it is a rubbish law, but you have got to stick to them.

I still think David Moyes has had positive start to his return as Hammers boss, and the same obviously goes for Carlo Ancelotti at Everton – apart from when they went to Liverpool in the FA Cup, they have been good.

I think this will be tight, and West Ham will be happy to keep it that way.

Moyes is not going to play open, expansive football because he doesn’t know some of his players yet, and they have not been playing well – you have got to understand that his priority will be to make it difficult for teams to play against them.

Lawro’s prediction: 2-1
