Liverpool host West Ham in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon, and Jurgen Klopp will hope his side can continue their good form of late. They may have seen an 18-match unbeaten run ended by back-to-back losses to Swansea and then West Brom in the FA Cup a few weeks ago, but they appear to have recovered in all competitions. They eased through the first leg of their Champions League tie with Porto 5-0 with Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino all scoring, but not before the latter pair grabbed a goal and an assist each at Southampton in their last Premier League outing.
GAMBLE AWARE WITH BETFAIR!
West Ham will arrive at Anfield in decent but not spectacular form overall, but reeling from a poor performance and result at Brighton. David Moyes is returning to Merseyside, where he spent 11 years as Everton boss, but he will need to improve on his poor record since 2013. We think Salah will insure that he won’t, meaning a rather comfortable home win.
All teams below Manchester City have had their rough patches in recent weeks, meaning Liverpool are not only well in the race for the top four, but second place too. With Mane, Firmino and Salah all on song, the Reds are certainly not missing Philippe Coutinho, who joined Barcelona in January.
West Ham sit 12th in the league with 30 points, but that is just four points clear of the relegation zone. Picking up a point in this one would certainly be welcome for Moyes.

Liverpool have no fresh injury concerns but West Ham could feature Marko Arnautovic and Manuel Lanzini.
