West Ham entertain Everton at the London Stadium this afternoon (3pm kick-off) with both teams looking to climb the Premier League table with victory.

Slaven Bilic’s Hammers have picked up four points from their last two games to move away from the bottom three, with the East London outfit now nine points clear of the relegation zone with just five matches remaining.

West Ham picked up a 2-2 draw at Sunderland last weekend to move up to 13th in the table, with Andre Ayew netting their second on the day, and Bilic will once again look to the Ghana international to help inspire his side to victory this afternoon.

However, it won’t be easy against Ronald Koeman’s Toffees at the London Stadium today, who could move up to fifth in the division with all three points in East London.

The Merseyside outfit have won four of their last six league games to stay with the top six sides, who may still harbour ambitions of a top four finish this term given that they could go within four points of Manchester City with a win this afternoon.

And the Toffees will once again look to talisman Romelu Lukaku to get the goals against West Ham today, with the Premier League’s top-scorer looking to pull clear of second place Harry Kane by adding to his 24 goals this afternoon.

So, with these two key forwards set to go head-to-head this afternoon, here is how Ayew and Lukaku match up in the league this season…
