Our tipster thinks that a disciplined defensive performance could hold the key for Jurgen Klopp's men when they visit London Stadium on Monday night

Premier League leaders Liverpool travel to take on West Ham United on Monday night looking to extend their advantage at the top of the table to five points at the London Stadium.

West Ham have lost their last three matches and Manuel Pellegrini's men will be determined to bounce back against the Reds.

The Hammers will be heartened by their recent home record, though, as they have lost just one of their last six matches on their own patch.

Latest odds

West Ham took the scalp of Arsenal in their most recent outing at London Stadium so with that in mind, bet365's 15/2 (8.50) quote for Pellegrini's men to get the better of the Reds may appeal.

Jurgen Klopp's charges, however, have lost just once away from home in the Premier League this term - against Manchester City - and the men from Merseyside can be backed at 2/5 (1.40) with bet365 to come out on top in east London.

The same firm go 17/4 (5.25) that Monday's match ends in stalemate.

Team news

Both sides have had their fair share of injury problems to contend with this season. Jack Wilshere, Andriy Yarmolenko, Carlos Sanchez and Manuel Lanzini are all out for the Hammers and Marko Arnautovic is rated as doubtful.

For Liverpool, Joe Gomez and Trent Alexander-Arnold remain out. Fabinho and Dejan Lovren could return to the starting line-up whilst James Milner is back after serving a one-match suspension.

Solid visitors

Liverpool have kept a clean sheet in five of their last six away victories and West Ham have failed to score in their last two league matches.

Indeed, the Hammers did not even muster a shot on target against Wolves at Molineux last time out and as such, the even money (2.0) quote for Liverpool to keep a clean sheet against Pellegrini's men could prove popular.

Unhappy Hammers?

West Ham have been beaten by at least two clear goals in each of their last seven defeats and Liverpool (-1) can be backed at 10/11 (1.91) with bet365 to beat the handicap mark on Monday.

Prediction

Despite claiming just one clean sheet in their last six matches, Liverpool boast the best defensive record in the Premier League. with just 14 league goals conceded thus far this term.

The Reds' resolve will be further enhanced by the likely return of key personnel in defensive positions and it is the 5/4 (2.25) quote, then, for Klopp's charges to win to nil at London Stadium could represent real value for punters.

Odds correct at time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.

Liverpool to win to nil at 5/4 (2.25) for a 1pt stake at bet365
