|West Ham v Liverpool|
| Liverpool to win by one goal margin
|@ 13 / 5||
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool are under pressure in the race for a top-four finish after they could only draw 0-0 against Southampton last weekend. It was another abject failure against lesser opposition for the Reds at Anfield but they do have a decent record away from home, with Liverpool losing just four of their eighteen games on the road so far.
The visitors are 8/11 odds on for the win (Betfred) and they have won their past three away league games in a row, with all three victories coming by a one goal margin.
Liverpool to win by one goal is a stand-out 13/5 with Bet 365 this weekend and they are bolstered by the return of Adam Lallana, while Lucas Leiva and Roberto Firmino are doubts, with Jordan Henderson and Sadio Mane definitely out.
West Ham have injury problems of their own as Mark Noble is a doubt, while the influential Andy Carroll and Michael Antonio are definitely out, and we simply cannot back them at 4/1 (Betfred.com).
Slaven Bilic’s position as manager is reportedly under threat following a mediocre season and the 1-0 win over Tottenham is looking like an outlier as it was only their second win in their past twelve outings.
The Hammers will do well to rouse themselves for a second big performance in a little over a week and we are going to back Liverpool to edge to a valuable victory in London, with the Reds decent value to end a five-match winless run in this West Ham v Liverpool fixture (drawn two, lost three).
