West Ham vs Liverpool 10 Feb 2016: FA Cup Preview and Predictions

USA TODAY Sports

West Ham will be at home this midweek to play Liverpool once again in the FA Cup. This is a rematch due the draw that played out between these two sides in the last encounter and this time they will look to settle a result. Both teams will want to play well although this match might favor West Ham more than it favors Liverpool since not only are the Hammers at home but they will be fresher since they have played one less game in the result hectic schedules.

West Ham are playing some really good football this season, and although their achievements have been overshadowed by the more impressive Leicester City side, they have still been playing at a really high level. This team might not have the most complex tactics in the world but nevertheless they are getting points and that is what is important at the end of the day. That being said they are coming off a loss but this team has quality and experience so I expect them to bounce back strong.

Liverpool on the other hand are really starting to struggle from the effects of all the matches they are having to play. This team failed to win against Sunderland and it was due to late goals and that shows that the Reds are struggle with the heavy workload.

Overall I think that this game will be too much for Liverpool and at home I expect West Ham to win. This should be a good fixture to watch but I expect the Hammers and their fans to leave a lot happier. As far as betting is concerned, we can bet on the outright result since we are getting a good price here and it is pretty safe in my opinion. 

Pick:
West Ham
