Sadio Mane is tipped to shine in our Champions League final predictions

West Ham vs Liverpool: Reds can burst Hammers’ bubble

Kick-off: 1630, 07/11/2021

Stadium: London Stadium

West Ham are doing incredibly well in the Premier League this season but have a tougher schedule coming up, starting with Liverpool on Sunday.

The Reds have won four straight head-to-head meetings and eight of the last nine renewals of this fixture – a record which is hard to ignore.

We think 23/20 for an away win and over 2.5 goals in the game is a solid West Ham vs Liverpool prediction.

A Look At West Ham United’s Betting Odds

West Ham are just two points behind their opponents after completing a hat-trick of league wins when prevailing 4-1 at Aston Villa.

Ezri Konsa’s red card early in the second half helped the Hammers but they still impressed, with goals from Ben Johnson, Declan Rice, Pablo Fornals and Jarrod Bowen.

“I’m really pleased with the players, they are doing a remarkable job,” beamed David Moyes. “We have really high standards at the moment and we are trying to keep doing the right things.”

Moyes has done a good job of also juggling Europa League and EFL Cup commitments, enjoying some great triumphs in both of those competitions.

However, there is still that nagging doubt about the fact that they have not played any of the top three teams in the league.

Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea are coming up in the next five Premier fixtures and we fear United could now have their limitations exposed.

Looking at the West Ham vs Liverpool odds, we like 16/5 for the visitors to prevail 2-1, 3-1 or 4-1 from the multiple correct score market.

Last West Ham EPL line-up: Fabianski, Cresswell, Zouma, Ogbonna, Johnson, Fornals, Soucek, Rice, Antonio, Bowen, Benrahma.

Nikola Vlasic and Andriy Yarmolenko will rejoin the West Ham squad after missing Thursday’s 2-2 Europa League draw at Genk due to minor injury concerns.

A Look At Liverpool’s Betting Odds

Liverpool suffered a blip when held to a 2-2 draw by Brighton at Anfield in a match packed full of end-to-end action.

However, Wednesday’s 2-0 Champions League triumph over Atletico Madrid got them back on track, even if the Spanish giants were reduced to 10 men on 36 minutes.

Diogo Jota and Sadio Mane had already put the Reds in control and they went on to qualify for the last 16 with two games to spare.

Following a fourth successive Champions League group victory for the first time in the club’s history, Jurgen Klopp said: “Pretty much from all our points of view, it was a good performance.

“I wouldn’t have expected that when I saw the draw. No one would have expected that, so doing it was pretty special.”

Losing Roberto Firmino to injury was a blow, especially with the likes of Naby Keita and James Milner already sidelined.

Klopp must be delighted with the form of Mane, though, with the Senegal ace now on eight goals in 14 appearances this term.

The German was keen to protect him from Atletico’s gamesmanship by bringing him off at half-time, so he should be fresh to go again here.

Let’s finish off our West Ham vs Liverpool betting tips by taking 6/1 for Mane to score first in an away win.

Last Liverpool line-up: Alisson, Van Dijk, Tsimikas, Matip, Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Henderson, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Mane, Salah, Jota.

Curtis Jones (eye) and Joe Gomez (calf) remain on the sidelines. Midfielder Fabinho will start his first Premier League match in a month after making his comeback from a knee problem against Atletico.
