West Ham will be looking to cause another upset when they travel to Anfield to take on Liverpool in Saturday’s Premier League clash.
The Hammers have been in excellent form recently, thrashing Wolves and Leicester before earning impressive draws against Tottenham and Manchester City.
Liverpool vs West Ham Latest Odds
However, having lost six and won none of their last eight games against this opposition, they are 6/1 (7.00) outsiders with bet365 to extend their run with another shock win and priced at 17/4 (5.25) to claim a share of the spoils.
Jurgen Klopp’s men come into this match on the back of a three-game winning streak in all competitions and are clear 4/11 (1.36) favourites to make it four in a row in this one.
Liverpool vs West Ham Team News
Fabinho went off injured in Tuesday’s win over Midtjylland and is out for at least two weeks while Virgil van Dijk and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are also ruled out. Joel Matip, Thiago and Kostas Tsimikas are all absent.
Michail Antonio has lost a race against time to recover from the hamstring injury that forced him off in last weekend’s draw against Manchester City.
Liverpool XI: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Phillips, Gomez, Robertson; Henderson, Wijnaldum, Jones; Mane, Salah, Firmino
West Ham XI: Fabianski; Coufal, Balbuena, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Masuaku; Rice, Soucek; Fornals, Bowen, Haller
Liverpool vs West Ham Preview
Fabinho’s injury cast a major shadow over the Reds’ midweek Champions League victory, further diminishing the club’s already threadbare defensive options which leaves Joe Gomez as the only recognised senior centre-back.
They must now field a reshuffled and potentially inexperienced backline featuring youngster Rhys Williams – who played an hour against Midtjylland – for what is set to be a tough game against a confident opponent.
Indeed, David Moyes’ team will fear nobody after the last few results and is sure to pile pressure on whoever is asked with the tough job of filling in at the back.
Liverpool vs West Ham Tips and Predictions
Having lost just once in six league matches on the road stretching back to last season, odds of 2/1 (3.00) are surely worth backing on high-flying West Ham adding to their list of scalps by at least avoiding defeat against a weakened Liverpool.
