Liverpool and West Ham United face off on Saturday in an English Premier League showdown at Anfield in Liverpool.
Liverpool won the Premier League last year and they have dreams of doing so again this year. Liverpool is tied with Everton atop the standings with 13 points but they do have some major injury issues that could creep up with them as the season goes on. Liverpool will be without Van Dijk for a while and they will also be without Fabinho for this match. Liverpool won 2-1 over Sheffield United in their last Premier League game, Liverpool also had a midweek game in the Champions League against Midtjylland, a game they won 2-0. Mohamed Salah is still the most important offensive player for Liverpool and he did put a goal in the back of the net in the last game. At times this season, Liverpool’s defense has been an issue and in this game it can’t be something that lets them down.
On the other side of this matchup is West Ham United who sits in 12th place in the standings with eight points total. West Ham has played to a couple of draws in their last two games, but there is nothing wrong with those draws. Two games ago against Tottenham they scored three goals in the last ten minutes to get the draw. In the last game against Manchester City the defense was strong and even though they only had 30 percent of the possession they still did enough to cover the spread. In the last game they only had two shots on goal, but one of them went in the back of the net. Against another good offensive team they are going to need the defense to be strong again.
West Ham doesn’t lack any confidence and they are going to find success again in this game. West Ham’s defense is going lockdown, and even though they might not win, they are going to at least get a draw. Back West Ham +1 which currently sits at around +150.
