West Ham vs Liverpool Predictions

Liverpool have promised and delivered one thing in almost every Premier League encounter; that is goals. The Merseyside outfit have been pure entertainment in every encounter that they have played in with 33 goals being scored in their 10 encounters played till date; and what makes up a terrible showing for them sitting in 6th spot is the 16 goals that they have conceded this season so far. However, that has improved with 4 clean sheets in their last 5 matches. But as an insurance for Klopp he knows his team has to go out in the pitch every week and keep scoring goals in order to have that 1 extra goal than his opponents. The last 4 games have seen them 14 goals; although it was 10 against Maribor and 1 against Tottenham; the performance against Huddersfield where they won 3-0; surely brought some confidence back to the Anfield faithful. Liverpool should look to start a attacking 6 including Firmino, Coutinho, Salah, Sane, Henderson and Can which could surely counter attack against any an all opponents. 

West Ham will be fearful of their right wing in this encounter especially with Antonio struggling to recover from injury and Zabaleta suspended leaving the likes of Coutinho, Sane and Moreno to attack at will on that end of the pitch. West Ham manager Bilic knows that his job could go at any time, but a victory against Tottenham in the Cup and a draw against Palace last time around could give him a stay of execution even if he drops this game. West Ham will be confident that their attacking strength is slowly showing netting 5 goals in their last 2 games, while scoring in 6 of their last 7 games including netting 4 against Tottenham in 2 games. The injury list at West Ham is something that twill not help them out in this encounter with the likes of Fonte and Creswell as major doubts, while Antonio, Reid and Collins likely to be out and Zabaleta suspended. West Ham have conceded 19 goals in 10 games so far this Premier League season.Manchester City vs Liverpool predictions, betting tips and match preview 

Liverpool know that West Ham are ripe for the taking; and with all their major contenders playing on Sunday, this could give them the opportunity, especially to overtake Arsenal to 5th spot. With Liverpools’ great attacking and West Ham struggling defensively, I am backing Liverpool to net over 1.5 goals in this encounter.
