Liverpool vs West Ham Prediction: Premier League Match on 31.10.2020
It has been another damaging week for Liverpool, as they have lost yet another crucial player. However, they will be looking to overcome that and claim all three points against an improving West Ham United side at Anfield.
Premier League Preview
Liverpool were just getting over the loss of Virgil van Dijk throughout injury before their Champions League fixture in midweek against Midtjylland. However, they will once again be sweating over the fitness of another important player for the team as Fabinho limped off in that Champions League fixture at Anfield. There hasn’t been news yet relating to how long he could be out, but it is the last thing that Jurgen Klopp needs at present.
The Reds went on to win that European fixtures 2-0, but it wasn’t an impressive display by the Premier League champions. They needed to wait until the 55th minute to get their noses ahead, as Diogo Jota scored for the second game on the bounce. The win was confirmed in the final stages, as Mohamed Salah tucked away a penalty in the 93rd minute. However, this will be a much bigger challenge against West Ham United this weekend.
The Hammers are getting better with every passing week at present, and they will come into this fixture having not lost in four Premier League games. They got their season back on track with consecutive wins against Leicester City and Wolverhampton Wanderers, before they continued that decent form with draws against Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City. That draw against City was their last game in the league, with Michael Antonio scoring the opener for the Hammers. Raheem Sterling levelled the scores for the Citizens, but West Ham will still take confidence from a competitive performance against one of the best teams in the league.
Liverpool vs West Ham United Head To Head
The Hammers have a miserable record against the Reds, as they haven’t won in eight Premier League meetings. Their last win against Liverpool came back in 2016. The Reds have won six of the last seven fixtures against the Hammers.
Liverpool vs West Ham United Prediction
Liverpool will be difficult to stop at Anfield this season, but the Hammers may fancy their chances after picking up draws against Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City. Our pick for this fixture is for West Ham to pick up a shock point against the Reds.
