Including an FA Cup extra-time victory last year, the Hammers have won three of the previous four encounters between the sides in their own back yard, and are on offer at 15/4 (4.75) with Betfair Sportsbook to extend that run by coming out on top in this one.
However, Jurgen Klopp’s men ran out 4-0 winners when the sides last met on this ground back in May, and can be backed at 3/4 (1.75) to secure all three points once again here.
None of the last 12 league meetings between the sides in East London have resulted in a draw, but there are odds of 16/5 (4.20) available on them cancelling each other out on this occasion.
After coming back from two goals down to win 3-2 in last week’s EFL Cup clash at Tottenham, Slaven Bilic’s men subsequently found themselves on the wrong end of a comeback when they surrendered a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 at Crystal Palace.
This combination of a leaky defence and enterprising attack should help to provide another high-scoring clash against the Reds, who have conceded a league-high 15 goals in five away matches this campaign.
However, the guests also have 14 goals to their name in their last four fixtures in all competitions and appear likely to ensure entertainment is not reserved to just one end of the pitch in the capital.
In fact, the price of 31/20 (2.55) is well worth backing on over 3.5 goals being scored for West Ham’s third game in a row, as well as six in seven league matches on the road for Liverpool - including that 4-0 win on this ground back in May.
