West Ham vs Liverpool by Marcelino
West Ham had a great start to the season! They were in the top 4 for a while, beating many of the top sides, but then started sliding down the table when they got a few injuries to key players. However, despite their loss of their key attacking players, they are still a very difficult side to beat! They haven't lost in their last 6 games in the league. However, they did win just 1. They got 5 draws, mostly with a lot of help from their great defense. They kept 4 clean sheets in their last 6 matches, conceeding just 2. Their injured players are returning and they may have back key player Payet for this match, as well as Cresswell and Jelavic. Their morale is very high after coming back from losing their 1st half to win their last match home against Southampton. Carrol scored the winning goal which will be a great boost for him!
Liverpool's odds are far too low in my opinion, and I think this match will end in a draw. West Ham drew 5 of their last 6 matches, winning the 6th. In their last 8 matches, they drew 6. West Ham won the reverse fixture 3-0, but the key is that they kept a clean sheet. Liverpool have not been free scoring lately, scoring just 2 goals in their last 3 league games. West Ham have been defending very well, with 3 clean sheet in last 5. I think West Ham will be able to keep Liverpool out and this match will likely end 0-0, but I will go for a draw because 1-1 is also a good possibility.
