Liverpool and West Ham United face off on Wednesday in an English Premier League showdown at Anfield. When these two teams faced off on March 5th it was Liverpool that secured the 1-0 victory.
West Ham comes into this game sitting in 12th place in the standings having picked up 11 points. In the last game against Southampton, West Ham secured a 1-1 victory. Declain Rice scored a goal in the 64th minute to secure the draw. West Ham had 61 percent of the possession and four shots on target. Kurt Zouma missed the last game because of an illness, but it’s expected that he might be able to go in this game. Maxwell Cornet and Nayef Aguerd are still dealing with injuries, and they aren’t expected to be able to go in this game.
On the other side of this matchup is Liverpool, who sits in 8th place in the standings having picked up 13 points. Liverpool got out to a slow start to the season, but it’s clear they are still one of the best teams in the Premier League. In the last game against Manchester City, the defense was elite, giving up zero goals and that was enough to secure the 1-0 victory. Mohamed Salah scored in the 76th minute. Diogo Jota suffered a calf injury in the last game, and he will be out a while. Luiz Diaz is also dealing with a knee injury and will be out.
Liverpool’s defense was elite against Manchester City over the weekend, and they are going to find success again in this game. West Ham is going to really struggle to score in this game, and that is going to be the difference. I’m not sure Liverpool will run up the score, but they will score at least one, and it will be enough. Back Liverpool -1
