The visit of Brendan Rodgers’ Liverpool will hold no fears for a West Ham side who have lost only once at home this season. The Hammers have bagged 15 home points from a potential 24, and interestingly have fared better on home soil than Arsenal, Tottenham and Everton. Their defensive record holds up well in their own stadium too; only Man City, West Brom and Stoke have conceded fewer goals at home this season.
Liverpool are in a reasonable run of form but they just don’t win often enough. And that is of course why they lie in 11th place in the Premier League table. The Reds have lost only one of their last ten league matches, but have drawn five of the other nine. Tellingly Liverpool have won only once away from home in the league since the start of the season.
Recent meetings between the teams favour Liverpool, who have won four of their last five encounters with West Ham. However last time out at Upton Park, The Hammers ran out 3-1 victors. Sam Allardyce would no doubt be happy with the same again, although I can see a much lower scoring game this time. I do favour West Ham at the prices, especially given Liverpool may be tired from midweek Europa League action. At 2/1 West Ham look a decent bet, as does the 1-0 correct score at 15/2. Kevin Nolan is consistently among the goals for his side, and so a little nibble on him to score the first goal at 15/2 is recommended. And scorecast punters could do worse than take the 30/1 on offer for Nolan FGS and 1-0 West Ham.
