West Ham will have this honor this weekend as they host the first game of the English Premier League in 2016 as the face Liverpool in what should be a very interesting match. West Ham are an amazing side at home while they will be facing the Reds who are one of the best side in the league. Both teams will believe that they can get the three points and that is what will make this an interesting game.
Liverpool have been a different side under Klopp and although there are some problems defensively, this team is filled with a lot of talent and they will fancy their chances against any team. This team has managed to beat sides like Manchester City this season and when they are playing well they are very good. That being said, I don’t think that this Liverpool side are at the top of their game. There are a lot of injuries in the side and that has caused them problems so I think that they will let their opponents in with a chance this weekend.
West Ham will look to use their home ground advantage and get a result here. This season has been pretty good for the Hammers and they come into this match having not been beaten in over one month. This is quite a good record and I think that they will be confident that they can get a point or maybe even 3 points against an inconsistent Liverpool outfit. This will be a test for the Hammers but I think they can stand up strong.
This is going to be a cracking game and I think that West Ham will do enough to hold on for a draw. Liverpool are the better side but West Ham will be at home and they have showed a lot of heart lately so I think they will get a point. This is paying well also so this is the best bet in my opinion.
