Admittedly, the defeat was Liverpool’s first in a long time but it is clear to see that Jurgen Klopp’s men cannot defend so poorly if they are to harbour aspirations of winning the Premier League title this season.
Now Liverpool prepare to square off against a struggling West Ham United outfit at Anfield on Sunday and one can be sure that Klopp will be demanding his players to claim all three points from the encounter.
Adam Bogdan, Philippe Coutinho, Danny Ings and Daniel Sturridge are all ruled out for the clash while the duo of Joe Gomez and Sheyi Ojo remains fitness doubts.
West Ham United Match Betting News
West Ham United succumbed to their second heavy defeat in the space of three days after going down to an embarrassing 5-1 defeat against Arsenal at the London Stadium and the result was perhaps a proof that the Hammers are set for a relegation battle this season.
It is clear to see that manager Slaven Bilic needs his side to claim a couple of victories soon in order to lift a bit of pressure off of his shoulders but doing so will not be easy this weekend as West Ham prepare for an encounter against Liverpool away from home.
Sam Byram, Cheikhou Kouyate, Reece Oxford, Diafra Sakho and Gokhan Tore are all definitely ruled out for the clash while James Collins is struggling with injury at the moment.
Liverpool vs West Ham United Match Prediction
West Ham United managed to beat Liverpool on both occasions last season before also dumping the Reds out of the FA Cup and that should give the Hammers confidence heading into Sunday’s clash.
However, the current Liverpool side is a completely different proposition while West Ham have taken a turn for the worse and a comfortable home victory should be on the cards.
