West Ham vs Liverpool Match Preview

Such has been Liverpool’s domination this season, that they are actively seeking other records along with the first league crown in three decades.

The immediate objective would be to tally the longest unbeaten run in the league by Arsenal 17 years back. The Invincibles, managed by Arsene Wenger had gone 49 PL fixtures without a defeat, and as of now, the Reds are unbeaten in their previous 40 league games.

Along with that, Jurgen Klopp could also target the records of most points and most wins in a season, both of which is in possession of Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.

West Ham vs Liverpool Prediction

West Ham had taken on Leicester the last match-day, and the frustrated Foxes pulled a 4-1 home win over them. At no point in the game did West Ham seem to be in control.

Meanwhile, Robert Firmino appeared savior for the Reds against the Wolves the prior game day. They were on the road, and had taken on giant-killers, Wolves. Still, Klopp’s men managed a 1-2 tough-fought win.

As things stand, Liverpool are easily the overwhelming favorites to record the three points this Wednesday. They have been unbeaten in the toughest league in Europe for over a year, and this whole season they have dropped a total of two points.

They are on course to break several records which were thought to stand the test of time, and in spite of all this, Klopp’s men seem to have no thoughts of stopping.

They have in fact won 21 of their previous 24 match-ups, and 12 of the last 15 on the road. Importantly, the Reds are also easily the best defensive outfit in the whole league, and they have conceded a total of just six goals till this point away from home.

On the other hand, West Ham are placed 17th in the table, sharing the same number of points as that of the 19th placed Watford. Keep note that only two teams have conceded more goals than West Ham, and they are on a winless run of four matches, of which three were losses.

In addition, West Ham were also winless in 16 of their last 20 overall fixtures, and were so in eight of their previous nine in front of the home crowd.

Going on, Liverpool had won four of the last five h2h clashes, and they had recorded a combined scoreline of 17-3 in the process.

Also, it’s been four years since the Reds have lost against this opponent, and at this venue, in the last 12 years, only once have Klopp’s men failed to find the back of the net.

Considering all these observations, we are inclined to pick out Liverpool as the favorite to post a huge win.

Also, after seven PL clean sheets in a row, the Reds finally conceded a goal against Wolves the previous game week, and they will be raring to get back to their defensive best.

Likely, expect a clean sheet as well from Liverpool.
