West Ham vs Liverpool Match Preview
West Ham will hope for better luck when they take on Liverpool at the London Stadium. This West Ham vs Liverpool fixture will be played on Saturday evening, November 4. Here are the predictions for the match between West Ham vs Liverpool.
It has been a consistently poor performance from West Ham so far in the Premier League. They currently are 16th in the table with nine points from 10 games and are a hare breadth away from the relegation zone – one point separates them from Everton in 18th. Manager Slaven Bilic must be feeling all the pressure in the world as his side looks to get out of the woods. Although the 3-2 win over Tottenham Hotspur in the League Cup has given him a lifeline, the 2-2 draw to Crystal Palace was once again frustrating. With two wins and two losses in their home matches, West Ham aren’t getting anywhere with their home form either! With some tough games waiting in the wings – Leicester, Chelsea, and Arsenal to follow – Bilic will hope to pick up something in this fixture.
It won’t be easy though, as Liverpool are a tough proposition, even though they are as unpredictable as the Hammers themselves. Jurgen Klopp’s men have faltered to deceive this season with 16 points from 10 games that places them 6th in the table. Having started the season as title hopefuls, the Reds find themselves 12 points off the table-toppers Manchester City. Premier League title already looks out of reach while the more practical target would be top four, which is currently three points adrift. But, Liverpool come on the back of some free-flowing performances in their last four matches. During this period, they have won three, scored 14 goals and conceded four. However, the Reds need a win as much as the Hammers as they push to move closer to the top four.

West Ham vs Liverpool Predictions
It may look a surprising pick, but we believe the Reds’ inability to shut down teams outside top four could haunt them in this fixture. There are goals on either side and we may see more than 2.5 goals. Liverpool winning the game is a more popular pick but West Ham’s desperation for points could see them fight tooth and nail.
