Liverpool vs West Ham Betting Tips: Form Guide

Reds Aiming Even Higher

Another new season has rolled around and the expectations at Anfield are higher than ever, after a summer which has seen manager Jurgen Klopp strengthen his Liverpool squad with a clutch of new arrivals. Swiss international winger Xherdan Shaqiri has been signed to add to more depth in the attacking positions. The Reds have also added goalkeper Alisson Becker, midfielder Naby Keita and utility player Fabinho. Manager Jurgen Klopp has stated that his expectations are as high as those of anyone associated with the club, so it looks like the Reds are serious about winning the Premier League title this season.

If you are looking for Liverpool vs West Ham betting tips for today, then it is worth keeping an eye on Sadio Mane. He has scored in Liverpool’s last two opening-day Premier League fixtures. Only five other players have scored in three consecutive opening Premier League fixtures, so he could become part of a select group. Another stat worth noting is that the Reds have scored four goals in each of their last three games against West Ham. They have never scored four goals in four consecutive games against the same opponent, so there is a chance to set a record.

Hammers Hoping For Better This Season

West Ham’s new manager Manuel Pellegrini is in charge of a new era at the east London club. The fans will certainly hope for a fresh start, after last season descended, at times, into ill-tempered chaos, with fan protests turning ugly on occasion. A trip to Anfield is not the easiest way for Pellegrini to begin his reign at the club, though. West Ham have lost more top flight games against the Reds than any other club, having been defeated 61 times in their top flight history by the team from Anfield.

The Hammers have spent big this summer on new signings, with nine players arriving to boost the first team squad. England midfielder Jack Wilshere is one of those players, while Lucas Perez, Andriy Yarmolenko and Felipe Anderson are among the other players who have moved to east London. There are injuries for Pellegrini to deal with, when it comes to selecting the team, though. Yarmolenko is doubtful with a hip injury, while Andy Carroll (ankle), Winston Reid (knee), Manuel Lanzini (ACL) and Michail Antonio (ACL) will be missing. Edimilson Fernandes is also a slight doubt, but the rest of the squad is available for selection.

Liverpool vs West Ham Preview: Recent Meetings

Liverpool have won their last three Premier League games with West Ham, scoring four goals in each game. Last season, the first meeting between the sides was at the London Stadium  in November, 2017. Liverpool won the game 4-1. Mo Salah scored twice for the Reds, in the 21st and 75th minutes. Joel Matip also scored in the first half, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in the second. West Ham’s goal was scored by Manuel Lanzini.

The second encounter last season was at Anfield in February, 2018. Again, the final score in the match was 4-1. Emre Can opened the scoring for the Reds just before half-time, before Mo Salah and Roberto Firminho added second and third goals on 51 and 57 minutes. Michail Antonio pulled one back for the Hammers on 59 minutes, before Sadio Mane completed the scoring for Liverpool in the 77th minute.

Liverpool vs West Ham Prediction: Comfortable Home Win

Predicting the opening game of a league season is often tricky. It is hard to know how well new players have integrated, and how a manager’s new plans and ideas will work when they face contact with a committed and motivated opposition. Nevertheless, history tends to suggest that Liverpool will win this game. West Ham have endured a miserable recent history against the Reds, and a trip to Anfield is far from the ideal way to kick off a campaign.

The prediction is that Liverpool will win the game 2-0, with Mohamed Salah likely to score at least once.
