Everton register interest in American starlet Bello

  Everton register interest in American starlet Bello Everton are reportedly interested in signing United States youth international George Bello, according to Calciomercato. The Italian outlet claim that the Toffees are one of a long list of clubs to register an interest in the talented defender, who made his debut for Atlanta United at the weekend, aged 16-years and 224 days old. Bello has been tipped to have a big career in European football, and a move may not be far off for the teenage full-back. Everton are joined by Genoa, Roma, Schalke, Chelsea and Manchester City in having either enquired or registered an interest in the left-back. Bello was born in Abuja, Nigeria, before moving to the United States when he was young, joining Atlanta’s academy in 2016.

Manuel Pellegrini will be keen to put to bed any rumours of the sack with a good performance away at Everton this weekend.

The two sides meet at Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon and the Hammers need a good result.

The international break came at a good time for West Ham after four consecutive defeats in the Premier League.

Here is how we think West Ham will line up on Sunday.

Noble reveals how Pellegrini inspired West Ham's win over Everton .
West Ham United captain Mark Nobles has revealed that Manuel Pellegrini used three words during the half-time interval to inspire the Hammers to a 3-1 victory at Goodison Park, according to a report on HITC. The London club went into the break with a 2-1 lead and were on the back foot as Everton had scored just before the interval. But Noble revealed that Pellegrini made sure that the players kept calm and got themselves together again before the second period. Noble said: “What pleased me most, though, was the way we reacted in the second half after Everton scored to make it 2-1 right on half-time.” “We had played well in the first 45 minutes and the manager said, “Relax, calm down” and told us to keep playing the way we had been – and we did that.” The Hammers face a difficult test against Chelsea at the London Stadium this weekend but the players are in a confident mood heading into the London derby. After losing their first four Premier League matches, Pellegrini was adamant not to change the style of play and his players proved that his system will work by beating Everton. They will need to be more cautious against Chelsea but are expected to cause the Blues some problems at the back.
