West Ham v Liverpool

Home WinDrawAway Win
Key stats
  • Liverpool have won 31 of their last 32 league games
Expert verdict
Most of Liverpool's big guns will return to face West Ham, giving them a strong chance of posting a 15th consecutive Premier League victory. Sadio Mane's injury is a blow for the leaders but they should grind out a low-scoring success over West Ham, who lost 1-0 at home to a largely second-string West Brom team on Saturday.
