Liverpool v West Ham preview

Filed under: Betting,Football,Latest Previews,Match Day |

Liverpool begin their Premier League campaign on Sunday when they welcome West Ham to Anfield.

The 28-year wait for the top-flight league title could finally be coming to an end this season for Liverpool. A lot of momentum has been carried over from the end of last season and the addition of three key players makes this likely to be the season that the glory returns to Anfield.

Can the Liverpool trio score another 57 Premier League goals?

New additions Alisson, Fabinho and Naby Keita will replace weak links in last season’s team and Virgil van Dijk will begin his first full season as Liverpool’s main centre-back.  The Dutchman has made a significant difference since his arrival in January and now the arrival of a top-class goalkeeper, Alisson, will surely mean no more soft goals and dropped points in their quest for the title.

Jurgen Klopp will almost surely start Alisson and Keita on Sunday and has a strong squad to choose from particularly in attack with Mane, Firmino and Salah looking to better their return of 57 Premier League goals from last season.

Last season was disappointing for West Ham as they were drawn into a relegation battle and had a lot of dissatisfaction amongst many of their fans.

A new manager has arrived, and the owners have backed Manuel Pellegrini in the transfer market with some decent signings. They’ve had a strong pre-season campaign, scoring in each of their 7 club friendlies, so there is plenty of reason for optimism for the new season.

However, this is a very tough opener for the Hammers and whilst they may score it looks very highliy likely Liverpool will have too much firepower for them.

Liverpool are currently 1.27 in the betting, meaning if you bet €10 you would get €2.70 in profit should Liverpool win, but them odds are too short for us to get involved. Instead we will go with a bet on the Reds to win and both teams to score. Last season both their meetings finished 4-1 and expect a similar type score line this time.
