Liverpool – West Ham (Premier League)

Liverpool and West Ham face each other on Saturday, at Anfield Road, for the 28th round of the Premier League. The Reds arrive here well rested, with their last competitive match being last week against FC Porto, for the Champions League, with the team leaving Portugal with an impressive 5-0 win, which leaves them almost in the quarter-finals. West Ham, on their turn, come here with just one victory in their last five consecutive matches in all competitions, and are not yet completely safe from the relegation battle.

Liverpool are in 3rd place with 54 points, from 15 victories, 9 draws and 3 defeats, with 61 goals scored and 31 goals conceded. The Reds are undefeated in their last four consecutive games, and have only suffered two defeats in the last 24 consecutive games in all competitions. The team are already out of the FA Cup and the EFL Cup, but are still in the Champions League where they are practically qualified to the quarter-finals after beating FC Porto at the Estádio do Dragão by 5-0. With 2nd placed Manchester United facing Chelsea a day after this meeting, Jurgen Klopp’s team sees a good opportunity to advance into 2nd place in the league table, which is 2 points ahead of them.

The Reds are yet to be defeated at home in a Premier League match, they have won 7 and tied 6, with 27 goals scored and 9 conceded. The team have also won 3 of their last 4 home matches in this competition, tying the other one, and scored 13 goals and conceded 6 in the process. Liverpool have the second best attack in the Premier League, and also have the second top scorer of the competition, Mohamed Salah with 22 goals scored.

In their last 5 official matches, Liverpool has a record of 3 victories, 1 draw and 1 defeat. This sequence of results started with a 2-3 defeat against West Bromwich, for the FA Cup. This result was followed by a 0-3 victory against Huddersfield Town, a 2-2 draw at home against Tottenham, a 0-2 victory over Southampton, and in their last match, a 0-5 victory against FC Porto, for the Champions League.

Probable Lineup: Karius – Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, Dijk and Robertson – Henderson, Wijnaldum and Can – Salah, Firmino and Mané.

premier-leagueWest Ham, on their turn, are in 12th place with 30 points, from 7 victories, 9 draws and 11 defeats, with 34 goals scored and 46 goals conceded. The London team arrives here with just one vicotry in their last 5 matches, 4 of them for the Premier League and the other one for the FA Cup, and despite being close to the top half of the table, they are only 4 points above the bottom three, an advantage a little uncomfortable. The Hammers have no more competition to worry about and have been defeated only once in their last 8 Premier League games, even though they have won only 3 of them.

Away from home the team shows difficulties in getting positive results, having won only 2 of 14 away matches in the Premier League, losing 7, with a total of 18 goals scored and 29 goals conceded. However, the Hammers are getting stronger as visitors and have lost only 1 of their last 5 away games in the competition, with a total of 12 goals scored and 8 goals conceded. The team led by David Moyes needs to continue to avoid defeat and to get more points in order to stay away from the battle of the relegation zone. Still, David Moyes has a poor record as manager against Liverpool, winning just five times in 30 attempts.

In their last 5 official matches, West Ham has a record of 1 victory, 2 draws and 2 defeats. This sequence of results started with a 1-1 draw at home against Bournemouth. This result was followed by a 2-0 victory against Wigan Athletic, for the FA Cup, a 1-1 draw at home against Crystal Palace, a 3-1 defeat against Brighton, and in their last match, a 2-0 victory against Watford. Masuaku, suspended, Edimilson Fernandes and Andy Carroll, both injured, are all out for this match.

Probable Lineup: Adrián – Fonte, Ogbona and Cresswell – Noble, Kouyaté, Zabaleta and Antonio – Mário, Chicharito and Arnautovic.

Each team has won 3 of their last 8 direct confrontations, tying the remaining 2.

The Hammers are unbeaten in their last three trips to Anfield, but now they are up against a Liverpool in an excellent form and with a huge offensive power. The Reds are well rested and will try to put pressure from the outset and it would be a surprise if Klopp’s side didn’t come away with all three points here.
