Follow all the action as West Ham United host Everton in the Premier League this afternoon.

David Moyes’s side remain very much alive in the race for a top-four finish and can reduce the gap to Leicester to just two points with a victory today. A surprise defeat against Newcastle last month did somewhat derail the Hammers’ momentum, however, they responded last weekend by coming from behind to beat Burnley courtesy of a Michail Antonio double. What’s more, having navigated a tough run of fixtures, West Ham have a favourable run-in with this game, in theory, their hardest remaining, while Leicester are out of form and still have to face Manchester United, Chelse and Tottenham.

Everton, meanwhile, are still in pursuit of a Europa League spot for next season and trail the Hammers by just six points. However, they are in danger of squandering that opportunity, with just one win in their last seven league matches, and the Toffees performed poorly against Aston Villa last time out. “Fortunately for us, it is not the last opportunity, we have five more opportunities,” Carlo Ancelotti said afterwards. “But we have to show a different attitude at the beginning. Honestly, I am frustrated.” Follow all the action live below.

Carlo Ancelotti speaks to Sky Sports

“For all teams in this period the games are really important. We are not so far from West Ham and we have an opportunity to get a result here and be closer to them. We want to be in the fight for Europe until the end. It is important to be brave, consider this game and that West Ham are playing really well.”

David Moyes speaks to Sky Sports

“We’re in a good position, we can go again and try and get closer to the top. Once you feel like you’re up and amongst it you want to stay there. We’re getting players back from injury and hanging in there. This is a big game for us today and we know how important it is.”

Over to the London Stadium now, where the battle for a place in European competition continues. West Ham remain in contention for the top four, while Everton’s aspirations may now be limited to the Europa League. But this should be an intriguing contest.
