As we head into ‘week 11’ in the Premier League the final game to take place is a fascinating clash between West Ham and Liverpool on Sunday.

Both sides have made decent starts to the campaign, with the former champions – Liverpool – on 22 points, while West Ham are just two back with 20 points.

Liverpool will be reeling a bit from last week, having thrown away a 2-0 lead against Brighton to draw, but, in contrast, the Hammers will be full of confidence having seen off Aston Villa easily.

The match betting still has a one-sided look to it though, with Liverpool – despite being the away side – on offer at 1.66, with the draw 4.20 and West Ham as big as 4.75.

When the sides met in this fixture last season it ended in an easy 1-3 away win for Liverpool and the Reds took 6 points off West Ham last term. But you feel the Londoners are a better team this season and can make more of a game of it.

That said, Liverpool fans will know that they are 9 games unbeaten when facing West Ham.

For the neutral fans though, the good news is that this fixture tends to produce goals – both teams have scored in 8 of the last 11 meetings, while 9 of the last 11 went Over 2.5 Goals. You can back Both Teams To Score at 1.53 and 3+ goals in the game (Over 2.5 Goals) is a slightly worse 1.50.

Looking at the scoring markets, the in-form Mo Salah, who has netted in all of the last four head-to-heads against West Ham, is 4.00 (1st) or 1.66 (anytime), while the shortest-priced Hammer is Antonio at 8.00 (1st) or 2.87 (anytime).

Overall, it’s a game the layers expect Liverpool to get all three points from, but with West Ham having home advantage and heading here in decent form the 1.66 on offer on a Liverpool win looks short enough.

That said, West Ham have struggled to beat Liverpool in recent times, so the safe call is to stick with the goals theme and back BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE at 1.53.
