Liverpool v West Ham preview and tips

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez appears resigned to failure in his team’s quest to finish in the fourth Champions League position.

Given up 4th spot?

After the 0-0 home draw with Fulham in the Reds’ last game he said: “To finish in the top four is now very difficult. The [points] difference is maybe too much.”

With that in mind, as well as a Europa League trip to Athletico Madrid just three days after this match, the injured Fernando Torres is very unlikely to be risked against West Ham.

Meanwhile the Hammers have a terrible away record this season, their only win on their travels coming at Wolves on the opening day, but they fought hard to draw 2-2 at Everton two weeks ago and then achieved a vital home win over Sunderland.

It seems Gianfranco Zola’s men have finally decided to fight against relegation and the odds of 1.41 on a Liverpool win are not worth the risk.

With the Merseysiders drawing their last two Premiership matches another share of the points seems good value.
