MATCH FACTS

Head-to-head

  • Liverpool have won their last four games against West Ham, winning two of those matches 4-0 and two of them 4-1.
  • The Reds are the second side in Premier League history to score four or more goals in four consecutive matches against a single opponent, after Tottenham against Stoke (from 2016 to 2017).
  • The last time an English top-flight side scored four or more goals in five successive games versus a particular club was from 1930 to 1933, when Arsenal did so in seven straight matches against Middlesbrough.

West Ham United

  • West Ham are looking to win three consecutive league and cup games at the London Stadium for the first time in what will be their 61st match at the venue.
  • They failed to register a single shot on target against Wolves – the last time that happened in a Premier League match was against Arsenal in December 2017.
  • The Hammers have scored 17 of their last 20 Premier League goals in the second half.
  • Manuel Pellegrini has suffered five Premier League defeats against Liverpool, more than versus any other club.
  • Pellegrini has lost all three of his previous managerial encounters with Jurgen Klopp in the Premier League.

Liverpool

  • The Reds have won just two of their last five games in league and cup (D1, L2), after winning the previous eight matches.
  • Only two teams have started February with a Premier League lead of five points or more and not won the title – Newcastle in 1995 and Arsenal in 2002.
  • Wednesday’s draw with Leicester ended Liverpool’s run of 17 consecutive league wins against sides from outside the established top six.
  • Mohamed Salah has scored four goals in three Premier League appearances against West Ham.
    Salah needs two goals to reach 50 for Liverpool in the top flight.
  • This will be Salah’s 61st league appearance for the Reds – the record for fewest games to reach 50 Premier League goals for a single club is held by Alan Shearer (66 matches for Blackburn).

Last time out
The Hammers last met Liverpool on the opening day of the season at Anfield, as Manuel Pellegrini took charge of his first West Ham game in the Premier League. New summer signings Lukasz Fabianski, Fabián Balbuena, Ryan Fredericks, Felipe Anderson and Jack Wilshere all started that day, while Andriy Yarmolenko came off the bench to make an appearance.

It turned out to be Liverpool’s day on that occasion, with the home side winning 4-0. Mohamed Salah scored the first for Liverpool on 19 minutes, while Sadio Mane bagged himself a brace, scoring on 45 and 53 minutes.

Daniel Sturridge then came off the bench to score in the closing stages of the game on 88 minutes and earn Liverpool the three points.

Best Odds & Predictions

If Hammers striker Marko Arnautovic is absent with his foot injury for Monday’s Premier League fixture with Liverpool at London Stadium then there can only be one outcome.
