Liverpool vs West Ham match preview

Liverpool’s attacking trio is one of the best in world football and The Reds have no problem scoring. Their defence, however, has not been brilliant this year.

Jurgen Klopp’s team have kept consecutive clean sheets in their last two games. They had conceded 12 goals in their previous 8 games.

Virgil Van Dijk was brought in from Southampton to tighten up Liverpool’s defence but he hasn’t been overly impressive thus far.

West Ham have only won one in their last 7 away matches in all competitions and have struggled on the road this term.

Liverpool were rampant when the two sides met earlier in the season. Mo Salah of course, scored twice whilst Joel Matip and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain added goals later on as Liverpool won 4-1 at the London Stadium.
