Liverpool vs West Ham predictions
Jürgen Klopp's men have dominated this fixture in recent years, especially at Anfield. While West Ham can actually hold their own, it doesn't look like they'll have a say away from home. Here are our predictions!
Prediction 1: Liverpool to Win
The Anfield giants have won eight times in the last ten meetings with David Moyes' side, losing in just one occasion. The last three clashes between them have ended in defeat for the Hammers. While the Reds have strung four consecutive league wins ahead of this matchup, West Ham have won three, still, we think they'll go back home empty-handed in this fixture.
Prediction 2: Both Teams to Score
Our second prediction for this clash is on both sides scoring. Analysis of previous matches between them has yielded both teams scoring results in five out of the last seven meetings. Interestingly, all six of West Ham's matches across all competitions this season have ended in both sides scoring. Similarly, five of Liverpool's six matches so far this campaign have seen goals at both ends five times. With both sides scoring and conceding, both teams' score market looks likely to occur.
Prediction 3: Over 2.5 Total Goals
Five of the last seven clashes between Liverpool and West Ham have ended with at least three goals. It's worth mentioning that the last five matches Liverpool have played this season have produced over 2.5 outcomes, the same thing goes for West Ham who are likely going to score at Anfield.
Liverpool vs West Ham Head-to-Head

Liverpool recent form
The Reds have been in scintillating form since their 1-1 draw with Chelsea on the opening day of the season. They've gone on to win five straight games across all competitions ahead of this encounter with West Ham.
West Ham recent form
David Moyes' side have picked four wins, a draw and a loss in their six games so far this season. The Europa Conference League Champions are on course to have a good campaign.
Mohammed Kudus will start at Anfield
On 27 August 2023, Mohammed Kudus left Ajax, signing for Premier League club West Ham United on a five-year contract for an undisclosed fee which was reported to be £38 million plus add-ons.
The Ghanaian international made his debut for West Ham in their 2-1 away win at Luton on 1 September. He scored his first goal for the club in a group stage game of the 2023/24 Europa League on 21 September at home to Serbian team, TSC Bačka Topola.
With West Ham tied 1-1, Kudus scored in the 70th minute before Tomáš Souček added a third in the 82nd minute as the game finished 3-1.
Kudus has been in scintillating form this season for both Ajax and West Ham and he will definitely start against Liverpool as his team looks to end their three straight defeat to Klopp's men.
