West Ham Prediction

Firstly, let’s take a look at West Ham who sit in 12th place and a comfortable nine points clear of the relegation zone, but it looks like being another ordinary, dare I say, mediocre, season for The Hammers with seemingly little to play for.

There appears to have been a distinct lack of interest from the east London club in recent weeks as they’ve managed just one league win from their last five matches overall, which was a surprising 1-0 home win over London rivals, Arsenal, showing that Manuel Pellegrini’s side can upset the best on their day – and if they feel like it.

The on-off transfer speculation surrounding striker Arnautovic certainly hasn’t helped matters, but although a lucrative move to China has now been shelved, the forward is not doubtful for this clash through injury. Former Liverpool striker Andy Carroll could be in line to start up front here.

West Ham’s form at the London Stadium has actually been pretty steady as they’ve lost just once in their last five matches which was to Watford amidst an overall record of 5-2-5 17/18, but too many inconsistencies leads me to the goal markets – 7 of their 12 home matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals.


Key-Facts – West Ham v Liverpool

  • West Ham have lost just once in their last 5 home matches
  • 7 of West Ham’s 12 home matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals
  • The last 6 meetings between these two sides have produced over 2.5 goals


Liverpool Prediction

Although Manchester City suffered a shock 2-1 defeat away at Newcastle United during the week, Liverpool were unable to capitalise as they were held to a disappointing 1-1 draw at Anfield by Leicester City, so The Reds go into Monday night’s clash with West Ham holding just a slender two-point margin over Manchester City who beat Arsenal on Sunday.

The pressure is back on Liverpool then to deliver, but Jurgen Klopp’s side have generally responded in positive fashion to any questions raised from Manchester City as the title race starts to heat up.

It’s been a great season for Liverpool so far as they’ve lost just once in the top flight all season which was a recent 2-1 defeat away at Manchester City, but even so, they managed to bounce back straight away on their travels when they recorded a 1-0 win away at a stubborn Brighton outfit.

This match is expected to be a lot more open though which will suit Liverpool down to the ground and they still possess a decent away record of 9-2-1 23/7. Incidentally, 6 of Liverpool’s 12 away matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals.

Betting Tips Verdict

West Ham fans will be expecting their team to attack Liverpool on home turf as the Hammers like nothing better than to put one over the ‘Big Six’, while Liverpool won’t sit back knowing they now only have a two-point lead over Manchester City. There should be a few goals in this one.
