Liverpool vs West Ham: Premier League preview

W

est Ham will be looking to extend their terrific unbeaten run in the Premier League to five matches when they face yet another tough assignment at Anfield this weekend. 

The Hammers have been in magnificent form in recent weeks, emerging from a horrible four fixture run against Leicester, Wolves, Tottenham and Manchester City with two wins and two draws. 

Liverpool have shown signs of clicking into gear after an iffy start to the season, winning their last three games in all competitions, including a 2-0 victory over Midtjylland in the Champions League in midweek.

Liverpool vs West Ham is scheduled for a 5:30pm GMT kick-off on Sunday, October 31, 2020.

The match will be behind closed doors at Anfield with no fans due to be present due to government guidelines regarding coronavirus.

TV channel: Liverpool vs West Ham will be shown live on Sky Sports’ Main Event, and is available via Now TV.

Live stream: Sky Sports subscribers can stream the match online via SkyGo and the SkyGo app.

Liverpool’s centre-back injury crisis worsened in midweek when Fabinho limped out of their Champions League game, meaning youngster Rhys Williams could partner Joe Gomez. 

West Ham will be without Michail Antonio after the forward suffered a hamstring injury in last Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Man City.

Prediction: Liverpool 3-1 West Ham

Antonio’s absence is a big blow for the Hammers, particularly given Liverpool’s weakened backline. 

Jurgen Klopp had the luxury of resting his front three from the start in midweek and the Reds should have the firepower to end West Ham’s unbeaten run. 

Head to head (h2h) history and results

The Hammers have not beaten Liverpool since early 2016, with the Reds having won six of the last seven meetings, including a 3-2 win in this fixture last season.
