West Ham United

West Ham United vs Liverpool

, KO: 12:30 Apr 27, 2024, London Stadium
Liverpool

Liverpool will have to lift themselves up off the canvas when they lock horns with West Ham United in the Premier League at the London Stadium on Saturday lunchtime.

Jurgen Klopp’s side were dealt a crushing blow in the title race when crashing to a 2-0 defeat at Merseyside rivals Everton on Wednesday night.

That bruising setback has left the Reds three points behind Arsenal, not to mention they have played two games more than Man City, who beat Brighton on Thursday night.

However, Liverpool cannot afford to feel sorry for themselves and must swiftly focus their attention on picking up a win at West Ham this weekend.

The Hammers season is in danger of petering out, with the capital club winning just one of their last seven league games.

Last time out, David Moyes’ men found themselves on the wrong end of a 5-2 pasting from London rivals Crystal Palace.

How the bookies view it: Reds to Rebound

West Ham, who have triumphed in just one of their last seven Premier League outings at the London Stadium, are big outsiders at 9/2 (William Hill), while the draw is an unfancied 15/4 (William Hill).

Despite losing two of their last three Premier League games, Liverpool are lowly 11/20 (Bet 365) favourites to return to winning ways this weekend.

Recent head to head: History against the Hammers

Liverpool have been a bit of a bogey team for West Ham in recent years, with the Reds ruling in nine of the last 10 meetings between the pair.

In fact, Klopp’s side have comfortably overcome the Hammers twice already in league and cup competition this season, running out 3-1 and 5-1 winners respectively.

Players to watch: Salah the scourge of West Ham

Mohamed Salah has scored more goals (10) against West Ham than he has against any other team in the top-flight and the Egyptian forward is an eye-catching even-money shot on PaddyPower to add to that tally on Saturday.

West Ham could look to replicate Everton’s physical approach on Saturday, so team news permitting,  it could pay to side with Hammers set-piece specialist James Ward Prowse to provide what would be his eleventh assist of the season at 5/1 (Boylesports).

Predicted lineups

After missing West Ham’s last two league games due to injury, David Moyes is hoping to welcome back leading marksman Jarrod Bowen to his matchday squad this weekend.

Klopp is likely to shuffle his pack on Saturday, with Wataru Endo expected to be restored to the starting line-up following Wednesday’s 2-0 loss at Everton.

West Ham: Fabianski; Coufal, Zouma, Ogbonna, Emerson; Alvarez, Soucek; Bowen, Paqueta, Kudus; Antonio

Liverpool: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson; Szoboszlai, Endo, Mac Allister; Salah, Nunez, Diaz

Anything else catch the eye? Tough-tackling duo make for tasty double 

Combining both Edson Álvarez and Alexis Mac Allister to commit a foul will bring about a backable 4/5 Bet Builder on Bet 365 that holds plenty of appeal.

Hammers hatchet-man Álvarez has already racked up a whopping 16 yellow cards across all competitions this season, two of which were picked up in his previous two encounters with Liverpool earlier this season.

That bone-crunching card return has coincided with the Mexican midfielder averaging 1.4 fouls per game this season, committing at least one offence in 19 of his 29 top-flight outings this term to date.

As for Liverpool’s Mac Allister, he received his ninth yellow card of the season on Wednesday night, and he should be kept busy here given the pace and flair that West Ham will possess on the counter-attack.

The World Cup winner is averaging 1.6 fouls per 90 in the top-flight this term, committing 2+ fouls in three of his last four outings.

This 4/5 (Bet 365) Bet Builder would have paid out in the reverse Premier League fixture between the pair at Anfield earlier this season, and that only adds to the appeal of siding with the same selection at the London Stadium on Saturday.
