Liverpool v West Ham Match Preview, Betting Odds And Tips

Liverpool 1/3 – Draw 4/1 – West Ham 8/1
Odds shown are from William Hill and are subject to change

Liverpool hosts West Ham at Anfield in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon, with the hosts looking to maintain their good start to their top-flight campaign.
Liverpool have made a very solid start to the Premier League season claiming two 1-0 wins, before last time out claiming a very creditable goalless draw at Arsenal.
In truth though, Brendan Rodgers team had enough chances to win the game in north London and everybody connected with the Reds may see the game as missed opportunity to keep up their hundred per cent record this season.
Liverpool boss Rodgers will be pleased with his defence, who have kept clean sheets in all three of their Premier League fixtures so far. However, the likes of Philippe Coutinho and Christian Benteke have been wasteful in front of goal, so will be expected to be more clinical in this clash.
West Ham started their Premier League campaign in such a good fashion by winning 2-0 at Arsenal. That good start to the season now seems a distant memory after the Hammers suffered consecutive home defeats against Leicester and last time out Bournemouth.
The 4-3 reverse against the Cherries was made even worse by the fact that Carl Jenkinson was also dismissed with around ten minutes left on the clock. This could be a difficult trip for the Hammers and they will travel to Merseyside in hope more than expectation.

Liverpool v West Ham Team News

Liverpool are still without Daniel Sturridge and Jon Flanagan through injury, while captain Jordan Henderson is a doubt after missing the trip to Arsenal, as is Welsh midfielder Joe Allen and playmaker Adam Lallana. If Henderson recovers he is likely to come into the team instead of Emre Can or Lucas Leiva.
West Ham’s selection problems just get worse by the week. The Hammers are without the suspended Adrian and Carl Jenkinson.
Their list of likely injury absentees is also relatively long as well with Andy Carroll, Enner Valencia and Mauro Zarate ruled out though injury, while defenders Reece Oxford and Joey O’Brien are both doubtful for the clash.
Angelo Ogbonna could fill in at right-back in place of Jenkinson, while Darren Randolph continues to deputise for Adrian in goal.

Possible Liverpool line-up: Mignolet, Clyne, Skrtel, Lovren, Gomez, Milner, Henderson, Firmino, Coutinho, Lallana, Benteke

Possible West Ham line-up: Randolph, Ogbonna, Reid, Tomkins, Cresswell, Noble, Obiang, Kouyate, Payet, Nolan, Sakho
