This Monday night sees Liverpool take on West Ham at Anfield. The Reds are looking to bounce back from a frustrating 1-0 defeat against Atletico Madrid whilst The Hammers will be looking to just hold on for dear life. Here are three reasons Liverpool will beat West Ham:
Jordan Henderson has been ruled out for about three weeks after picking up a knock against Atletico.
With the skipper absent we can expect Naby Keita to be reinstalled in the Liverpool midfield.
The fleet footed Guinean has been in impressive form when fit this season and he has struck up quite a partnership with Mo Salah, with the pair assisting each other in a run of games in December.
We can expect Nabs to drive at the Hammers defence with regularity tomorrow, they won’t have it in them to stop him.
Jürgen Klopp has had great success at Anfield because of the mentality he has instilled in his side.
This squad are incredibly strong in character, after losing to Atletico Madrid we can expect them to come out swinging against West Ham.
The last side you want to face at the moment is Liverpool, the last time you want to face them is when they’re out angry and on a mission.
Hopeless Homesick Hammers
West Ham have just one away win in their last six – they’ve lost the other five. Their one win came at Southampton.
With The Reds having last been beaten at home in 2017, David Moyes won’t be heading into this Anfield clash with much hope.
The crowd will also be up for it, with United displaying poor away form they will likely wilt in the Anfield cauldron.
