Liverpool vs. West Ham Prediction

Liverpool vs. West Ham
  • When: Saturday, March 5, 2022
  • Where: Anfield Road, Liverpool, England

Liverpool hosts West Ham in one of the most interesting matchups of EPL round 28. The Reds are second in the standings, six points behind the leaders, Man City, but with a game in hand and a massive swing generated over the past few days. On the other side, Hammers are chasing the UEFA Champions League ticket and have solid prospects of reaching the same. All this makes Saturday’s contest highly interesting.

Liverpool vs. West Ham Preview

Liverpool

The Reds have 10 straight wins, including the one over Chelsea in the EFL Cup finals following the penalties. It appears that Jurgen Klopp’s crew caught the rhythm in the best possible moment and that they await the closing part of the year, fired up and ready for all the challenges.

Liverpool didn’t concede a single goal in five of the past six events, once again reminding all of us that apart from a fantastic offense, they have one of the best defenses in the world, led by Virgil Van Dijk. The Dutch center-back is probably the best defender in England following Nemanja Vidic. 

When looking at L’pool’s games at home, one thing is noticeable – they haven’t lost any of them. At the moment, they have five consecutive triumphs, in all of them scoring at least twice and keeping three clean sheets.

West Ham

The Hammers had a slight drop in the quality of their performances, but they didn’t lose too many points during this, let’s say, minor crisis. They have only two wins in the last six Premiership contests, but the victory over the Wolves this weekend, 1-0, presents a great boost of morale for David Moyes’ guys.

West Ham plays more efficient games on the road than at home, where we rarely see three or more goals. When they appear away from London, the situation is different.

For example, five of the last six events saw them both scoring and conceding goals, and four of them were with over 2.5 hits. Over the past five road contests, the Hammers won three times (including the Kinderminster’s elimination from the FA Cup after extra times) and had one loss and draw.

Liverpool vs. West Ham Head to Head

The Hammers won the opening clash in this campaign, 3-2, in London. Though they lost the preceding four, and in all of them, the Reds managed to net at least twice.

Liverpool vs. West Ham Prediction

The Reds are in fantastic shape, and regardless of the Hammers’ solid form, we simply have to back up the hosts to win this one. Klopp’s machinery is on the rampage; therefore, anything other than their victory would be a sensation here. For those who want to increase the profit and take some risk, go with Liverpool, covering a -1.5-goal spread.
