Everton’s first game of 2021 sees them clash with West Ham United on New Year's Day.

While fans will have to watch the game from their homes they’ll be hoping the extra rest caused by the postponement of Monday’s game with Manchester City will help them make a flying start to the new year.

Toffees boss Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed he will welcome back Richarlison to the side but James Rodriguez will not feature due to his calf injury.

Meanwhile West Ham’s David Moyes will be hoping his Hammers side can put an end to their 4 match winless run. A 0-0 draw last time out against Southampton provided the Hammers with some positives and with Michail Antonio now back from injury, the Moyes will be looking for more goals.

It’s the first of 2 games on Friday, this one kicks off at 5.30.
