After Manchester City’s win over Arsenal on Sunday, it’s Liverpool‘s turn to respond as they take on West Ham.
The Reds did look nervous against Leicester on Wednesday, and against Crystal Palace the game before, but those where both at Anfield where expectations are high. Their form away from home has been impressive, with defeat at Manchester City the only recent blemish.
West Ham, by contrast, have lost their last three matches in all competitions and have a poor recent record against today’s visitors, conceding four goals in each of their last four clashes.
We think Liverpool will have a tough match here, but expect them to blast out the blocks to try and put the game to bed early. If they don’t get this early goal then the upset is on.
We note that the last big side to come here was Arsenal, who lost. And we think the atmosphere surrounding a televised evening game could push the Hammers to new heights. We’ll take a punt on a surprise home win.
Recommendations: West Ham to win, 1 pt, at 8/1, widely available
