West Ham is on the 5th line in the standings with 45 points. David Moyes’s team has 13 victories, six draws, and eight losses. The Hammers are competing in two tournaments. They are close to the Champions League zone in the Premier League standings, and they reached the Europa League 1/8 finals, where they will face Spanish Sevilla. The Iron Ones also participated in the FA Cup, but on March 2, they completed their performance at the 1/8 final stage. They did not cope with Southampton at St. Mary’s Stadium (3-1). That defeat ended West Ham’s 5-match unbeaten streak in all competitions.
The upcoming game is a chance for Liverpool to get even with the Hammers for the defeat in London in the first round (3-2). Liverpool is the only Premier League team that has not yet lost at home, and the last eight games at Anfield invariably ended in victories. In four away matches in all competitions, West Ham gained only one victory over modest Kidderminster in the FA Cup (2-1 after extra time). A draw in Liverpool would be a great result for the Irons. In the match of the 1st round, the opponents scored five goals for two. A similar result can be expected from the upcoming game. West Ham scored in almost every game, regardless of the opponent’s strength, and Liverpool scored at least two goals in six of the last seven rounds. Beyond that, head-to-head matches between these teams are usually productive. Ten of the last 12 games ended with at least three goals scored.
