Liverpool vs West Ham United Match Preview
Liverpool have a glorious chance of overtaking Manchester United to the second place in the English Premier League, albeit for some hours, when they host a West Ham side coming out of the relegation scrap. This Liverpool vs West Ham United fixture will be played at Anfield on Saturday, February 24, so check out our Liverpool vs West Ham United prediction and betting tips.
There is no doubt that Liverpool are one of the most attractive attacking teams in the Premier League, Manchester City included. That said, they are also one of the vulnerable ones at the back, which makes their contests enjoyable for a neutral. Ahead of this Liverpool vs West Ham United contest they are third after 27 games (54 pts, W15, D9, L3) which is just two points behind second-placed United who play later on Sunday. With a win, the Reds can move to second, but the inconsistent back line which has already conceded 31 goals – the highest among top-five – is a concern. They are unbeaten in four games, winning three of them, coming into this game and should be confident of their chances ahead of this match.
West Ham United
David Moyes will not have happy memories of Liverpool, as Everton manager and as United manager, with the Scot picking up just five wins in 30 attempts. However, he has been doing a great job with the Hammers having helped them stave off the relegation threat for the time-being. Ahead of this Liverpool vs West Ham United game, the visitors are 12th in the table after 27 games (30 pts, W7, D9, L11) which is four points above the drop zone. Although the difference isn’t much, this West Ham side is showing that they can stay away from danger. They have lost only two of their last 11 matches (W4, D5) in all competitions. Away from home, in the Premier League, the Hammers have lost only once in their last five trips (W2, D2).

Liverpool vs West Ham United betting tip
West Ham may boast of a great recent record on this ground, but it is difficult to see Klopp’s men faltering in this fixture. They looked great in the midweek in their Champions League fixture and should once again be the favoured team. That said, there should be goals in both nets and we are also backing a double chance on Liverpool.
