West Ham vs Liverpool Preview and Prediction – April 27, 2024

Liverpool’s aspirations for the Premier League title are teetering after their defeat in the Merseyside Derby on Wednesday. They now face West Ham United at the London Stadium on Saturday.

Match Preview

With just four matches left, Jurgen Klopp’s team trails table-topping Arsenal by three points, with Manchester City also in contention.

West Ham endured a 5-2 loss to Crystal Palace in their last game, managing only one shot on target.

Not only have the Hammers lost their last two Premier League matches, but they’ve also won just one of their previous seven games.

Furthermore, West Ham has only won once in their last eight home games in the Premier League, with five draws and two defeats during that period.

Having conceded 14 goals in their last six home league matches, Moyes’ side will likely struggle to keep a clean sheet this weekend.

On the other hand, Liverpool suffered a 2-0 defeat to Everton in their recent outing, despite dominating possession with 77% and registering 23 shots at Goodison Park.

This defeat marks Liverpool’s second loss in their last three Premier League matches, with a 1-0 defeat at Crystal Palace coming before a 3-1 victory at Fulham.

In recent weeks, Liverpool’s performance has been inconsistent, with four wins, one draw, and four losses in their last nine matches across all competitions.

However, Liverpool has won seven of their last 10 Premier League away matches, scoring more than 1.5 goals in six of those wins.

Head-to-Head:

Liverpool has already defeated West Ham twice this season, winning 3-1 in the Premier League and 5-1 in the EFL Cup in December.

Unfortunately for West Ham, they have lost nine of their last 10 meetings with Liverpool across all competitions, with only one win in the previous 16 encounters.

Team News & Updates:

West Ham is without George Earthy due to injury, while Jarrod Bowen, Nayef Aguerd, and Konstantinos Mavropanos are doubts for Saturday.

Liverpool’s injury list includes Diogo Jota, Conor Bradley, Joel Matip and Thiago Alcantara, with doubts over the availability of Cody Gakpo.

Prediction & Analysis:

In head-to-head encounters, Liverpool has dominated West Ham, securing two victories this season with convincing scorelines.

With West Ham struggling to contain Liverpool’s attacking prowess and a dismal record against them in recent years, the odds are stacked against Moyes’ side.

Expect both teams to score, but Liverpool is poised to emerge victorious, aiming to reignite their title bid with a resounding performance at London Stadium.
