Liverpool v West Ham Betting Predictions | Premier League BettingPublished December 8, 2016
That was a shock last week, right, boys and girls? Liverpool got Istanbullied by Bournemouth. Jurgen Klopp was graceful in defeat and congratulated the Cherries on their last-gasp 4-3 win to complete a comeback. Behind the scenes, however, he must have been raging. He’s an emotional man and his temper is as full-on as the manic joy he often exhibits from the touchline.
Liverpool can bounce back against West Ham this Sunday. The opportunity to learn from their mistakes, put them right in the next game and get their title challenge back on track. Their home record is impeccable and the Hammers are without a win in six matches in all competitions.
Slaven Bilic has been backed by West Ham co-owner David Sullivan after they were battered 5-1 by Arsenal last Sunday. Bilic claims that his players are even letting him down in training and seems at a loss to explain why his players have failed to deliver after such a promising campaign under his guidance. Playing away from home could end up bringing a sense of relief.
Speaking about the club’s Olympic Stadium, Bilic said: “The problem is when you say it doesn’t feel like Upton Park, it’s all kind of negative, like, why don’t you like it?
“It’s like a new home, you buy a new house or flat or whatever and you walk in and after a few months you say it doesn’t still feel like home but you love it.”
Liverpool will have Joel Matip back for this match. Philippe Coutinho is still injured.
Liverpool predicted XI: Karius, Matip, Lovren, Clyne, Milner, Wijnaldum, Henderson, Can, Firmino, Mané, Origi
West Ham predicted XI: Randolph, Collins, Ogbonna, Reid, Masuaku, Payet, Noble, Obiang, Lanzini, Fernandes, Fletcher
