Liverpool vs West Ham United Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Liverpool enter into the Premier League after a huge 5-0 win over Porto in the first leg of the Champions League last 16 round. Despite being an away game, Liverpool were able to thrash their opponents with first-half goals from Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah. The second-half witnessed an even bigger flourish, as Sadio Mane completed his hat-trick by scoring either side of a Roberto Firmino goal. West Ham ended a four-game winless run with a 2-0 victory over Watford at home. Javier Hernandez’ opening goal in the 38th minute coupled with the returning Marko Arnautovic scoring in the first half led to a comfortable win for David Moyes’ men.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The Liverpool outfit are aiming for a third consecutive victory over West Ham, but they have surprisingly struggled against the hammers at home. Liverpool have managed only two wins in the last six home games against West Ham and the last of those victories came in 2015. Liverpool would have been challenging for the title if not for drawing almost 50% of their home matches this season. Even after the high in the Champions League, I would back a draw. Liverpool may have kept three clean sheets in the last four games, but they are up against a West Ham outfit that has scored at least a goal in the last six away matches. The return of Arnautovic coupled with Javier Hernandez being on good form raises expectations about West Ham scoring in the game. I would back both teams to score.

Liverpool Preview

Liverpool have had a decent run in the last couple of matches, but the club will be lifted by the mammoth victory over Porto. The 5-0 away win in the first leg effectively places Liverpool into the quarter-finals of the Champions League. Now, the Reds will be hoping to build on this result with four home games in the next five. In terms of finishing in the top four, these games could also hold the key, as a game against Manchester United awaits the Reds. Over the last five league games, Liverpool have averaged just over two goals per match. Mohamed Salah trails Harry Kane at the top of the Premier League scoring charts with 22 goals.

Liverpool Team News

Adam Bogdan (cruciate ligament) and Rhian Brewster (ankle) are the names unavailable for Jurgen Klopp.

West Ham United Preview

West Ham were able to breathe a sigh of relief after the victory against Watford, as a run of winless matches threatened to put the club back into relegation trouble. The absence of key players like Arnautovic over the last couple of matches was one of the reasons for the disappointing run, but it also brought about Javier Hernandez’ best form since making the switch to the London Stadium. Hernandez is now level with Arnautovic at the top of the West Ham scoring charts with seven league goals.

West Ham United Team News

Andy Carroll (foot), Manuel Lanzini (hamstring), Pedro Mba Obiang (ligament), and Edimilson Fernandes (ankle) are the players unavailable due to injury, while Arthur Masuaku is suspended for the game.
