West Ham News and Form

There was a lot of transfer speculation surrounding Marko Arnautovic before he signed a contract extension with West Ham. But did that unsettle the dressing room? It has been back-to-back league defeats for West Ham after a heavy loss against Wolves on Tuesday. West Ham suffered a 3-0 defeat in the game. They do get back to home soil on the weekend, but they will face a very tough game there.

West Ham have produced a home record of W5 D2 L5 this season. To be fair to them they did produce a wonderful defensive performance in their last home game to beat Arsenal 1-0. That is four points which West Ham have collected from their last two league home games.

West Ham have done alright against some of the top sides in the division this season. For example, they have taken wins over both Arsenal and Manchester United and they got a point out of the visit from Chelsea. West Ham have produced 17 goals in their home games, conceding 18. They are currently running on a five-match scoring streak at home.

Defensively they have not been great because they have only managed two clean sheets at home in the EPL this season. Exactly half of West Ham’s home games this season have gone over 2.5 goals. The Hammers have been level the halftime break in exactly half of their dozen home fixtures. West Ham have scored 76% of their home goals this season after the halftime break.

Liverpool News and Form

On Tuesday night Manchester City suffered a shock of a defeat at Newcastle. Liverpool were fully expected to take advantage playing the following evening at home against Leicester. Liverpool only managed a 1-1 draw in the game against the Foxes. That was just the second time this season that Liverpool have failed to win a home game. They go out on the road on Monday evening with a trip to London.

Away from home, this season Liverpool are W9 D2 L1 for the term. After suffering a defeat at Manchester City at the start of January, Liverpool responded in their following away game by scraping out a 1-0 victory over Brighton. Really since the turn of the New Year, Liverpool have been finding the going just a little bit tougher.

But then they do have a tremendously strong record behind them this season. They have shown that they can grind out away wins and they may have to do so in this one. Liverpool have scored 23 goals away from home this season, which is just shy of an average of two per game. Their improved defence has been a big feature of their season, and Liverpool have only conceded seven goals in 12 away games.

Liverpool have taken a clean sheet in exactly half of their away games. Exactly 50% of their road games have made it over 2.5 goals. And here comes another one. 50% of Liverpool’s away games have seen the Reds win to nil in. The Reds have scored in all away games played this season. Liverpool have scored 75% of their away goals after the half-time break, but then they had conceded 71% of away goals in the second half of games too.

West Ham v Liverpool Predictions

Liverpool to win: There is really no reason why Liverpool couldn’t go and get the away win in this one. They are so defensively strong that it’s worth considering the low-scoring game in this one. That will be to the point of backing Liverpool to win to nil.
