  • Already met this season in the league, West Ham 3-2 Liverpool
  • Last season’s repeat fixture ended, Liverpool 2-1 West Ham
  • Liverpool have scored 2+ goals all their last 5 games vs West Ham
  • Liverpool have lost just one of their last 11 vs West Ham
  • 10 of the last 12 head-to-heads went OVER 2.5 GOALS (all comps)

In recent weeks Liverpool have closed the gap on their main title challengers – Man City – and as we head into this next set of Premier League games there is just 6 points between the two.

Next up for Klopp’s men is a home clash against West Ham and the match betting suggests an easy three points for the Reds.

Liverpool are on offer at 1.33 the draw 5.50 and West Ham at 8.00.

West Ham are having a decent season too though and come into this game with 45 points and are pushing for a European slot again.

The Hammers will also gain confidence here knowing they beat Liverpool at home in the league 3-2 earlier this season, while this clash last season only ended 2-1 to the Merseysiders – a repeat of that scoreline can be backed at 10.00.

That said, Liverpool have lost only one of their last 11 games to the Hammers – but that was the game this season!

It’s generally a fixture with goals in too – Liverpool have scored at least 2 goals in all of their last 5 vs West Ham – Liverpool are on offer at 1.33 to score over 1.5 goals in the game.

Over 2.5 goals has also paid out in 10 of the last 12 meetings between these sides, but this is reflected in the betting with 3+ goals in the game at just 1.50. If we add another goal at Over 3.50 Goals, the odds move up to 2.20.

Both teams have also scored in 9 of the last 12 clashes, so this might appeal at 1.80.

Liverpool’s Mo Salah to score in the game is certainly another option. The striker has netted 9 goals in his last 9 against West Ham – he’s on offer at 3.75 (1st) or 1.61 (anytime).

With just 2 draws in the last 17 head-to-heads it’s generally a game that we see a result in, but we are happy to stick with goals being scored in the game again and even though the 1.50 o Over 2.5 goals looks solid, we are happy to side with BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE at the slightly better 1.80.
