Looking to bounce back from their Champions League disappointment out in Spain during the week, Liverpool will turn their attention back to Premier League duties when they host West Ham on Monday night at Anfield.
While the Reds might have been hit with what was a shock 1-0 defeat away at a well organized Atletico Madrid on Tuesday night, Jurgen Klopp’s side have marched towards their first Premier League title and still remain firmly on course for what should be a famous campaign on Merseyside.
On the flip side, hit with what was a routine 2-0 defeat away at the Etihad in midweek and continuing on what has been a woeful rut, West Ham find themselves in their own battle at the foot of the table.
Without a top-flight win since New Year’s Day and with an unenviable fixture list ahead, the Hammers have lost four of their last five appearances and David Moyes’ side also hold a worrying record against Monday’s hosts.
Hit with a 2-0 defeat at the London Stadium last month, Liverpool have won five of their last six matchups against the Londoners, including a 4-0 romp in the Hammers’ last trip to Anfield. You might be interested to know that another victory for Klopp’s side and over 3.5 goals can be found priced at 11/10 with Betfair.
Liverpool looking to make a statement?
While Liverpool were rightfully left frustrated in their 1-0 defeat at Atletico Madrid in midweek, Jurgen Klopp’s side are marching towards their first Premier League title and have the chance to once again extended their buffer to 22 points.
Although the former Borussia Dortmund boss may have seen his side fail to record a single shot on target in the Spanish capital on Tuesday, fans around Anfield will be excited by their side’s continued success at the back, especially on Premier League duties.
Recording another clean sheet in East Anglia last weekend, the soon to be champions have now recorded five top-flight clean sheets on the bounce.
In fact, Liverpool have kept a clean sheet in 10 of their past 11 Premier League matches, this after having only kept one shutout in the previous 11 such games before this.
You might be interested to know that betting offers like Klopp’s side can be found priced at 5/6 with 888sport to land another clean sheet on Monday night.
Elsewhere, Liverpool could welcome Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain back into the starting line-up against after an injury to Jordan Henderson.
A Premier League farewell for West Ham?
Setting up heavily defensive at the Etihad and appearing to be happy to just leave Manchester with a 2-0 defeat, West Ham find themselves firmly in the midst of an East London nightmare.
Still sat in the bottom-three and the mood in David Moyes’ camp growing more fragile by the week, Monday’s guests have not recorded a Premier League victory since New Year’s Day.
More worrying for the former Manchester United boss, along with his side losing four of their last five matches across all competitions, West Ham also came crashing out of the FA Cup at the hands of Championship outfit West Brom last month.
Despite spending over £100million during the summer on the likes of misfiring striker Sebastian Haller and Pablo Fornals, who wasn’t even on the bench at the Etihad, the Hammers can be found priced at 11/10 with Bet365 to be hit with a shock relegation this season.
Elsewhere, after injuring his shoulder on Wednesday, full-back Ryan Fredrick’s could be set to miss the remainder of the season and is set to be replaced by veteran right-back, Pablo Zabaleta.
