West Ham vs Liverpool - The Predictions

According to the BBC Savio is back in the squad but Parker and Dyer are still out. After coming on as a reserve last week Kovac will presumably start this week.

For Liverpool Xabi Alonso is a doubt. Torres however should be back from his hamstring injury.


OMG, for the first time ever Lawro has predicted Liverpool to lose a game and West Ham to win a game. Only kidding. However he does think we will get a goal.

Lawro predicts a 1-2 West Ham loss


Sky think that the incentive of going back to the top of the league should be enough incentive for Liverpool in this game. However they say that West Ham are a tough nut to crack under Zola and are chasing a European spot.

Sky predict a 0-1 loss


Setanta point to West Ham's record against the big clubs this season. "Zola’s men do not fare well against the big sides. Of the top six, all five have won at West Ham."

No mention of the three recent away draws to the top 3 of 4 though? Sure, they beat us...but it was far from a right beating, and you could argue that with a decent finisher Chelski would have lost two weeks ago. Setanta have been entering Lawro territory for me.

With only 3 games left, they will want to keep the pressure on Manchester United. Without any other competitions to play for they would have had a week’s rest to focus on this game, and in truth I think Liverpool has rediscovered their early season form over the last couple of weeks and played some impressive football.

West Ham have also been impressive of late, and find themselves contending for a European spot. However, their injury list reads more like their teamsheet: Carlton Cole, Dean Ashton, Behrami, Gabbidon, Scott Parker, Kieron Dyer, and James Collins. Although they have a big squad and are therefore not stretched at the moment, I think they don’t have quality in depth, and against a pretty much full strength Liverpool side they will indeed struggle a lot.
