On Monday the 4th of February West Ham United are at home to Liverpool in the Premier League with a kick off time of 20:00.
West Ham United F.C
West Ham is currently in 12 places on 31 points and 4 points from 7th place Wolves who hammered them 3-0 in their last EPL match. Prior to that game they were knocked out of the FA cup by Wimbledon and were beaten by Brighton in the league so their current form is not good. In their next 3 EPL matches, they play away at Crystal Palace, at home to Fulham and then face Manchester City.
Liverpool sits top of the table on 61 points and is 5 ahead of 2nd place Manchester City and 7 ahead of 3rd place Tottenham Hotspur. In their last match, they dropped two points against Leicester City so cannot afford too many more slip-ups. They are at home to Bournemouth and then play away at Old Trafford against a resurgent Manchester United in their next 2 league matches after this. A lot is going to depend on if the players can cope with the mounting pressure of winning the EPL finally again. With the next round of the Champions League around the corner, they are going to have to cope with the pressure of trying to win both competitions so it is going to be a very difficult task but one that they have the quality to achieve.
Prediction – Liverpool Win
Liverpool may have not got all 3 points against Leicester but they did play well and were unlucky. If they are able to win their next 3 games it will make it very difficult for the others chasing but one more slip up could tilt the scales so its vital that they get back to winning ways against West Ham. The form Liverpool have shown for most of the season should be enough to get the job done by a margin of 1-2.
