West Ham United vs Liverpool Match Prediction

By Dean Carr

West Ham United host Liverpool at the London Stadium on 04/11/17 in what is close to a must-win game for both sides. West Ham lost a two-goal lead at Crystal Palace last weekend, while Liverpool were 3-0 winners at home to Maribor in the Champions League in midweek. Read on for a full match preview complete with betting tips and predictions.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The draw at Crystal Palace last weekend has intensified the feeling that Slaven Bilic could be on his way sooner than later. Liverpool can’t afford to drop yet more points this weekend and I can see them getting the win here - and potentially bring Bilic’s reign at West Ham to an end with it.

West Ham United Preview

If ever there was a result that signalled the beginning of the end for a manager, West Ham’s 2-2 draw away to Crystal Palace probably fit the bill after they allowed their two-goal lead to disintegrate in front of their own eyes. An excellent first-half performance saw the Hammers go in at the break 2-0 ahead, with Javier Hernandez and Andre Ayew both getting their names on the scoresheet, with the latter’s goal particularly impressive. However, a Luka Milivojevic penalty brought the Eagles within touching distance of West Ham and their pressure paid off when Wilfried Zaha scored a 97th minute equaliser. It was a devastating blow for Bilic, who had been told he had two games remaining to save his job, though their comeback win over Tottenham Hotspur in the League Cup appears to have given the Croat extra leverage. Now 16th in the table, should both Swansea and Everton better their result against Liverpool, West Ham would enter the international break in the relegation zone - a period of time some would consider to be the perfect time to execute a managerial change. With just one win in six in the Premier League, confidence looks to be at a real low at the London Stadium heading into this fixture.

James Collins (ankle) and Diafra Sakho (back) will both face fitness tests ahead of this game. Pablo Zabaleta is suspended.

Liverpool Preview

Liverpool may not have been quite so emphatic in their dismissal of Maribor this time around but did more than enough to get the job done after winning 3-0 at Anfield to stay top of their Champions League group. After a frustrating first half, the Reds quickly quicked into gear in the second as Mohamed Salah flicked in Trent Alexander-Arnold’s cross. James Milner then missed from the penalty spot - the fifth time in Liverpool’s last seven attempts - but he and Emre Can linked up to allow the latter to score an excellent second, before Daniel Sturridge smashed home the third in stoppage time. There has been somewhat of a positive response to their 4-1 defeat away to Tottenham Hotspur, bouncing back with successive 3-0 home wins, though they are games you would ultimately expect Liverpool to be winning. Now playing away from home, they will have no choice but to improve on a run of just one win from five games on the road in the Premier League - conceding fifteen goals already on the road. Despite their disappointing start away from home, Jurgen Klopp’s side remain just three points off the top four, with both Chelsea and Arsenal locked on 19 points at present and Liverpool could put real pressure on both going into their games on Sunday with a win here.

Liverpool Team News

Nathaniel Clyne (back), Gini Wijnaldum (ankle), Adam Lallana (thigh) and Philippe Coutinho (groin) are all set to miss out for Liverpool. Dejan Lovren (calf) is doubtful.
