West Ham United vs Liverpool Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

West Ham lost for a third consecutive match as Wolves picked up a comfortable 3-0 victory last weekend. Romain Saiss came up with the opener for Wolves in the second half but the game was given a flourishing score thanks to the late goals from Raul Jimenez. Liverpool were unable to make much of an impact after being held to a 1-1 draw by Leicester City at Anfield. Sadio Mane provided the lead for the hosts after just three minutes, but Liverpool were stunned by a remarkable Leicester response that yielded an equaliser just before half-time.

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

Betting Tips and Predictions

West Ham are struggling with a lack of confidence and there are far too many good players on the treatment table for the hammers to make an impact – even if they are playing at home. Liverpool have not been perfect over the last couple of games, but the Reds should capitalise on a defence that has conceded nine goals in the last three matches. However, all these three results have been away from home, but London Stadium has witnessed back-to-back clean sheets. Even then, I would back a Liverpool win and over 2.5 goals.

Mohamed Salah has scored the opening goal in two out of his last three appearances against West Ham. The Egyptian has become the top scorer in the division with 16 league goals this season. I would back an opening goal from Salah.

Liverpool win and over 2.5 goals – 20/21

Mohamed Salah to score the first goal – 3/1

West Ham United Preview

Pellegrini is struggling with a huge injury list that includes some key players. West Ham also lack confidence after suffering from a string of defeats. Apart from the goals scored against lower league Wimbledon, West Ham have had little going forward. The situation surrounding Arnautovic kept the club in the headlines, but there has been little activity from the club in the transfer market. It was not a priority to sign new players, as West Ham already had a large squad – albeit with a number of players injured. Felipe Anderson has been West Ham’s best player over the last few months.

West Ham United Team News

Luka Fabianski (arm), Samir Nasri (calf), Lucas Perez (ankle), Aaron Cresswell (hamstring), Marko Arnautovic (foot), Andriy Yarmolenko (Achilles tendon), Carlos Sanchez (ligament), Winston Reid (ligament), Jack Wilshere (ankle), and Fabian Balbuena (knee) are unavailable for West Ham.

Liverpool Preview

Liverpool have not been impressive over the last few weeks and the club could have easily dropped points in the games against Brighton and Crystal Palace – their only two victories over the last five matches. The Reds have had defensive issues during this period and it is unlike the team that was able to go on a run of 12 clean sheets in 20 matches prior to this run. The failure to establish a seven-point advantage over Manchester City will be a huge disappointment for the Reds. Mohamed Salah remains in contention for the Golden Boot title after grabbing 16 goals.

Liverpool Team News

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (cruciate ligament), Alexander Arnold (ligament), and Joe Gomez (broken leg) are unavailable for the Reds.
