West Ham – Liverpool Predictions and Tips and Odds for April 26, 19:45 PREMIER LEAGUE.

West Ham – Liverpool Preview

  • West Ham capped off a magical week that saw them reach a European semi-final in style by blasting past struggling Bournemouth 4-0 last time out to open up a six-point gap over the bottom three in the Premier League (PL) standings. It was a real team performance by David Moyes’ men who saw eight different players score or assist, the most ever in a PL game for the club.
  • The Hammers return to the London Stadium in fine form, having lost only once in their last ten matches in all competitions (W6, D3). They’ll now be looking to secure consecutive PL wins for only the second time this season, which will be a tall order when they welcome Liverpool, considering only two of West Ham’s last 20 encounters with opposition starting the day in the top-half ended in victory (D5, L13).
  • That task is made all the more difficult considering Liverpool are unbeaten in 12 of the last 13 H2Hs (W10, D2), although that singular loss did come in this fixture last season. That H2H record bodes well for manager Jürgen Klopp who claimed “things have changed” after his side won back-to-back PL matches of their own, most recently beating Nottingham Forest 3-2.
  • Prior to that, the Reds marked their return to form with a resounding 6-1 win away at Leeds, equaling the amount of goals they had scored in their last 11 matches on the road before (W2, D2, L7). They’ve dragged themselves back into contention for a European spot as a result, although there is still work to be done to salvage something tangible from the season as they currently sit seventh in the table.
  • Players to watch: The London Stadium faithful will be hoping for another Jarrod Bowen masterclass, considering 13 of his last 14 goals have come at home. Meanwhile, Diogo Jota is fresh off scoring a brace in his last two games and will be looking for more. Interestingly, Luis Suárez back in December 2013 was the last Liverpool player to score two or more goals in three successive PL matches.
  • Hot stat: West Ham are one of three PL teams this season yet to experience a 0-0 draw.
