West ham vs Liverpool: Preview, free tip and statistics
The eleventh round of the top English competition will conclude with a duel for the title between the attacking Liverpool and West Ham, who again this season aspire to finish on the rungs guaranteeing European Cups.
Background information, news and team form
West Ham managed to defeat Aston Villa at home in the last league round 1:4 at Villa Park, after Johson, midfielder Rice, Spaniard Pablo Fornals and striker Jarrod Bowen managed to assert themselves. England striker Ollie Watkins scored for the home side. West Ham managed to secure fourth place in the table with 20 points and the next match against Liverpool, who are in second place with a two-point margin, will be crucial for both teams in the fight for the European Cup. Experienced manager David Moyes was coaching his 1,000th game as a manager in the Europa League on Thursday, but his charges did not quite match him in performance. They could only draw 2-2 at Genk in Belgium after two goals from Benrahma. Overall, however, West Ham still holds the first position in the Europa League table, and all indications are that West Ham should not miss out on promotion. Liverpool has managed to time their form perfectly and now Jurgen Klopp's team are rocking both on the domestic scene and on the European stages. In their penultimate league game, the German coach's charges managed to scrape past home side United 0-5 and United suffered a historic debacle. For this reason, the subsequent draw with Brighton in the last league game must have come as a great surprise to many Premier League spectators. The Reds were 2-0 up in the 24th minute and all indications were that they would be able to win the game, but after some great individual action from Mwepuah, the visiting Seagulls managed to reduce the score to 2-1 and then in the 65th minute Trossard equalised to make it 2-2. In the Champions League, Liverpool at least managed to repair their reputation after beating Atletico Madrid 2-0 after goals from Jota and Mane. The interesting thing about this match is another red card, which the visiting Atletico picked up, and just like in the home match with Liverpool, Diego Simeone's charges played with ten players and could be glad that they didn't bring more goals from Anfield.
