LIVERPOOL V WEST HAM MATCH PREVIEW

Home » LIVERPOOL V WEST HAM MATCH PREVIEW

Fresh off the disappointment of losing to Atletico Madrid in the Champions League, Liverpool are expected to roll to another routine victory on Monday night when they take on relegation-threatened West Ham.

Premier League 2019/2020
Date: Monday 24th, February
Kick-off: 21:00 pm
Venue: Anfield
TV Channel: Sky Sports

Liverpool laboured throughout the course of the ninety last Tuesday, but yet failed to salvage a draw in Madrid. Once they went behind to that Saul Niguez’s early strike, it gradually became obvious they will get little chance of breaking through a very well-drilled and solid Atletico defence.

Back home for domestic duties, the Reds needn’t have to worry much though, as they continue to close in on an invincible topflight campaign. Jurgen Klopp’s side could even win the title as early as March, and will yet open up a 22-point lead with a win over their opponents here.

Meanwhile, West Ham have now claimed just two points from a possible 18 in their last six league games, going down 2-0 at Manchester City last time.

They are still a point from safety following Aston Villa’s loss to Southampton on Saturday, and unarguably the biggest upsets in recent years will put them three clear of the bottom three.

The Hammers were beaten 2-0 in the reverse fixture in January, and thus, have not won any of their last seven matches against Liverpool.

The duo of Jack Wilshere and Andriy Yarmolenko are also not available during to injuries.

Team form

Liverpool will be hurting after the latest setback in Europe, and will target a return to winning ways at their home. They are well placed to do so. Liverpool’s last five league games (WWWWW)

Suggested bets

There can be wiggle room to get value markets to bank on in a game such like this, as Liverpool’s supremacy makes it that simple a game to predict.

Very few will bet against them getting the job done as usual but I’d facetiously tip the Hammers to at least come away with a point from here. A odds for a draw is unsurprisingly 7/1.

Under 2.5 goals is 11/5, for those looking to bank another value tip from this game.
