The London Stadium is the venue for ninth against 11th on Saturday evening, when West Ham play host to Everton.
The Hammers go into the game unbeaten in their last seven home games in all competitions, including a 4-3 success over Huddersfield prior to the international break.
West Ham have won the last two meetings between the sides, which includes a 3-1 success at Goodison Park in September, and go into this fixture two points and two places ahead of their opponents.
Manuel Pellegrini is still having to deal with a lengthy injury list, with Samir Nasri the latest concern for the Hammers boss. Pellegrini admits the Frenchman may not feature after picking up a minor calf injury.
West Ham are still without Andy Carroll, Jack Wilshere, Andriy Yarmolenko, Carlos Sanchez and Winston Reid, but Manuel Lanzini is expected to feature and should be fresh after not featuring for Argentina in their recent friendlies.
Everton have also had their injury issues this season, with Yerry Mina the latest problem for Marco Silva. The centre-back suffered a hamstring injury, described by his manager as "serious", during Colombia's international friendly with South Korea.
There is some better news though for the Toffees, with Silva revealing that Lucas Digne "looks in condition to play", while the experienced Phil Jagielka is also back in contention.
West Ham are looking to complete a league double over Everton, something they have never achieved during the Premier League era.
West Ham will be looking to add some consistency to their game when they host an in-form Everton side at the London stadium this Saturday night.
West Ham come into this upcoming fixture having won three of their last five games. However, none of those wins have come back to back. Manuel Pellegrini’s men haven’t won consecutive Premier League games since mid-December when they went on a four-match winning run.
One major reason for their inconsistency is their away form. The Hammers are without a win away from home since they beat Southampton at St. Mary’s stadium.
Their home form, on the other hand, couldn’t be any better in recent weeks. Five wins from six games, 13 goals scored and only five conceded shows that perhaps the London stadium is slowly becoming a fortress for the Hammers.
Everton have endured a similar consistency issue this season. Marco Silva’s side have won three of their last ten games however, their last victory did come against Chelsea.
When it comes to the head to head record, there is one thing we can say with certainty – this fixture produces a lot of goals. The last three encounters between these two clubs have seen 12 goals scored.
With that in mind, the betting recommendation is to back the over 2.5 goals market.
And while we’re at it, let’s also add ‘both teams to score’ bet to the mix at the current price of 4/7.
Over 2.5 Goals – 4/5 bet365
