West Ham vs Liverpool Match Preview and Team News
Hosts West Ham has not lost in their last eight matches, and six of them are wins. The London side has hit top form and can dream of a top-four finish a season after struggling to avoid relegation. In their last 15 matches, they have ten wins and just two losses. They have scored 11 goals in their previous five games and conceded only three, and at home, they are unbeaten in the last five. Being at home, West Ham will hope to add on Liverpool’s woes. However, they don’t have a very good run against Liverpool, with an eight-game winless run. Manchester United forward Jesse Lingard is on his way to West Ham United, and should he feature here, it will boost their attack. Declan Rice has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. Jarrod Bowen is also a tremendous player, and in the one-on-one game, he is unstoppable. Much is expected of this guy this season, and he is the future of English football.
Liverpool finally came alive in the Premier League in 2021, with a 3-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur on Thursday. That ended a run of three straight losses and was also the first time in 2021 they scored a league goal. It has been tough for the reigning champions, who now have one clean sheet in six matches and the win in London was also their first in six league matches. The Reds have suffered partly due to injuries to key players, and it will not be any better against West Ham. Fabinho was ruled out just before the Spurs game, then Joel Matip was withdrawn at half time with a reported ankle injury. Liverpool has one loss in eight away league matches and is on three straight wins over West Ham United. Georginio Wijnaldum plays well in the middle of the pitch, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Sadio Mane plays excellently, he is fast in the one-on-one game, and he is unstoppable.
