The Liverpool vs West Ham match will be part of the schedule for the 28th week of the Premier League.
Liverpool carry the mission of revenge in this match. They lost 2-3 in the first meeting against West Ham United, last November.
Mohamed Salah and colleagues are looking at this match with high confidence after going 14 matches without defeat. One of the victories they won was over Chelsea which led them to win the 2021-2022 English League Cup.
Now Liverpool is in second place in the standings with a value of 60. Their chances of winning are still open because they are only six points behind Manchester City.
On the other hand, West Ham United ‘s condition is not good after being knocked out of the FA Cup this midweek. The team made by David Moyes was forced to give up with a score of 1-3 when they visited St. Mary’s Stadium, Southampton’s headquarters.
Nevertheless, the three points certainly remain the main target in order to push into the top four of the Premier League.
Currently West Ham United is in fifth position with a collection of 45 points, 2 points adrift of Manchester United who sits in fourth position.
Instead of chasing Manchester City who are at the top of the table, Jurgen Klopp says he is only focused on the game he will face.
