Liverpool v West Ham United Match Preview & Best Odds

 

Liverpool and West Ham United won their respective Europa League openers in strangely similar circumstances on Thursday evening and they return to domestic action on Sunday afternoon when they do battle with each other on Merseyside. 

Kick-off: 2pm, Sunday 24th September 2023

 

Liverpool battled their way back from a goal behind to beat LASK Linz 3-1 in their opening Europa League match on Thursday evening, winning after finding themselves behind being something of a recurring theme for Jurgen Klopp’s side in the early stages of the current season. Indeed, in the West Midlands last weekend the Reds beat Wolverhampton wanderers by the same scoreline despite going a goal behind in the seventh minute while they also went behind against Bournemouth and Newcastle United earlier in the season but ended up taking maximum points from each of these games.

Fighting fire with fire has been very much Liverpool’s approach this term and it has rewarded them with a top three position in the Premier League table, the Reds currently level on points with second-placed Tottenham Hotspur and two points behind league leaders and defending champions Manchester City. Liverpool’s unbeaten run in front of their own home fans stands at 14 games and given that they have only failed to find the net in one of their last 44 outings at Anfield, the likelihood is that they will add to the scoreline this weekend.

Backa Topola took a shock lead at the London Stadium on Thursday evening but West Ham United managed to turn the tide with relative ease and claim the three points in their Europa League opener. The Hammers’ excellent start to the Premier League campaign was blemished with a 3-1 defeat at home to Manchester City in their last domestic outing – the Hammers taking the lead in the 36th minute – and as things stand the East London outfit sit in sixth position in the league table after five rounds of fixtures.

Moyes’ side have beaten Brighton and Luton Town on their travels this season but they haven’t managed three away wins on the bounce in the Premier League since October 2021 with all-but-one of their last eight meetings with Liverpool ending in defeat. Both managers will be able to recall some big hitters for this match and while the Hammers’ defensive frailties are there for all to see, they will give the Reds their biggest test of the season thus far and end the home side’s unbeaten start to the campaign.

 

Back West Ham United to win at best odds of 13/2
