Liverpool v West Ham Premier League Preview, 24th February 3.00pm

Liverpool News and Form
Liverpool have the chance on Saturday to ramp up some pressure on Manchester United in the race for second place in the League. The Reds are W7 D6 L0 for the season on home soil and they have won three of their last four at Anfield now (D1). In their last four outings in the league at home, they have scored a total of thirteen goals so they are likely to produce well in this one. Liverpool are averaging two goals per game at home and in the Paddy Power correct score market a Liverpool 2-0 is the shortest-priced option at 6/1 with a 3-0 at 7/1* (Betting Odds taken at 8.49 p.m. on February 20th, 2018). Liverpool have shipped just the nine goals on home soil this season, but they are without a clean sheet in any of their last three. 31% of Liverpool’s home games this season have gone over 3.5 goals and 67% of Liverpool’s home games this term have come after the break and they have also conceded 67% of their goals after half time as well. Mo Salah is up as the first goalscorer favourite at 5/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 8.49 p.m. on February 20th, 2018). Liverpool have scored 2 goals or more in each of their last 4 home matches.
West Ham News and Form
The Hammers will be looking to improve their away form, which has seen them win just twice this season on their travels in the top flight. They have however gone W2 D2 L1 in their last five away from home, but their last away game ended up being a disaster for them as they crashed heavily in a 3-1 loss at Brighton. Overall home and away that loss against Brighton is their only defeat in their last eight played now. They picked up a 2-0 home win over Watford last time out in the league and that snapped an eight match sequence of games without a clean sheet. So there is a decent probability that they will concede. West Ham have conceded an average of two goals per game away from home this season and 60% of their road games have seen at least four goals. Over 3.5 goals at Paddy Power for this game is at even money odds* (Betting Odds taken at 8.49 p.m. on February 20th, 2018). As a positive though West Ham have scored in each of their last ten league games home and away and both teams to score is at 8/11* (Betting Odds taken at 8.49 p.m. on February 20th, 2018).
Liverpool v West Ham Head to Head
Liverpool are easy winners out on the road over West Ham earlier in the season and that have gone W2 D1 in their last three league games against the Irons, scoring a total of ten goals in those fixtures. The Red are actually winless in their last three home games against West Ham though in all competitions (D2 L1). Each of the last four meetings have gone over 2.5 goals.
