LIV vs WHU : Liverpool will be looking to continue their red-hot form in the Premier League as they welcome a struggling West Ham United United side to Anfield. The Merseyside red sit comfortably at the top with 76 and are undefeated in the league so far. However, Jurgen Klopp’s men did get beat 1-0 to Atletico Madrid in the first leg of Champions League Round of 16 recently. With that being said, there is a possibility that some first-team players get rested against the Hammers.
Talking about West Ham, it has been nothing short of a poor season so far, and the recruitment of David Moyes as the new manager in place of Manuel Pellegrini hasn’t made much of a difference either. West Ham United occupy 18th position in the league and as a result, is in the relegation zone with 24 points.
