Live on Skysports 1: Sun 13.30: Liverpool are 5/4 (Paddy Power) to collect all 3 points at Upton Park and continue up the table.
Unbeaten in eight all competitions, Liverpool still believe they can sneak into the Champions League places and they’re fancied to boost their chances in that department by collecting a maximum haul at struggling West Ham.
The Reds are 5/4 with Paddy Power to emerge triumphant at Upton Park. where Partybets offer 5/6 for both teams to get on the scoresheet, a bet made more attractive by the fact that the hosts have only failed to score once in their last seven league and cup outings.
The Hammers registered a confidence boosting 5-1 FA Cup victory on Monday and if the Reds’ laboured, midweek victory over Sparta Prague is anything to go by, Avram Grant’s charges can run the Reds close. Subsequently, Stan James’ 3/1 for Kenny Dalglish’s troops to edge it by a one-goal margin catches the eye and Coral chalk 17/2 against a 2-1 away win.
At Eastlands, Manchester City are emphatic favourites at 8/15 with William Hill to send former boss Mark Hughes’ Fulham home empty-handed but Roberto Mancini has a lengthy injury list to contend with and although they will still field a strong eleven, they’re too much of a risk against a Cottagers outfit, set up to keep things tight.
A draw, quoted by at 3/1, is arguably the best bet; it would suit the visitors down to the ground and City will find it difficult to break them down but it’s not a match to get heavily involved in and punters should wager with caution.
Liverpool to beat West Ham by one goal – 3/1 (Stan James)
Man City and Fulham to draw – 3/1 ()
