Liverpool 8/13 to beat West Ham in Saturday’s Premier League battle
Competition: Premier League
Market: Liverpool to beat West Ham
Odds: 8/13 @ Bet365
The Premier League is back this weekend with a glut of exceptionally interesting games that could prove hugely influential in the outcome of the league this season. With this in mind, Liverpool take on West Ham on Saturday as two sides that have underperformed and underachieved this season go head-to-head.
West Ham have struggled massively this campaign and pressure is building on Slaven Bilic. Nine points from 10 games is a very poor return, and just two wins along with five defeats means that the London side are floating dangerously above the relegation zone, a single point clear of Everton in 18th. It shows the struggles of the Hammers that they were 2-0 up against bottom club Crystal Palace, only to draw the game 2-2. A victory over Liverpool would be absolutely massive for their campaign and it might just see the London side kickstart their failing season.
For Liverpool, this season has been a difficult one. They are already 12 points behind leaders Manchester City, while they have won just four games this season, meaning their win ratio is just 40%. Jurgen Klopp has seen his side play some very attractive football this campaign, but their defence has let them down as it so often has, with the Reds conceding 16 times this season, two more than Bournemouth who are 19th in the league. This game is therefore a battle of the underachievers, and neither can afford to lose it. With this in mind, Bet365 have given Liverpool odds of 8/13 to beat West Ham.
