West Ham will be seeking to return to winning ways when they entertain table-toppers Liverpool at the London Stadium on Monday night. The Hammers have suffered successive defeats in the top-flight and this sees them in the bottom end of the standings. Jurgen Klopp’s side, however, are right at the top of the table with a five-point advantage over Manchester City following their stalemate in midweek. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
West Ham suffered their third straight defeat in all competitions in midweek after they were outclassed by Wolverhampton Wanderers by a 3-0 scoreline on the road.
Liverpool, meanwhile, could not make the most of City’s defeat and they managed only a 1-1 draw against Leicester City in a game played under difficult pitch conditions at Anfield.
West Ham and Liverpool previously faced each other in the season opener which the latter won 4-0 at Anfield. The last game at the London Stadium also went in Liverpool’s favour with a 4-1 score. Our betting tips and predictions expect an away triumph.

West Ham are backed at 7.50 for a return to winning ways but they face a stiff challenge against a Liverpool side which has lost just one game through the league campaign. The east London side have shown that they can compete against the elite with victories over Manchester United and Arsenal in their stadium and their remains the inconsistency which the Reds should pounce upon. Liverpool have beaten West Ham comprehensively in the past four meetings and our preview goes with the same outcome.

Correct Score odds
West Ham and Liverpool have witnessed contrasting scoring fortunes with the latter scoring four times the number of goals (3) as the hosts in the past five games. This statistic clearly shows the difference in terms of the scoring prowess and the visitors should secure a solid win, but a shutout remains doubtful with their recent vulnerability at the back. Our correct score prediction is to go with a Liverpool 3-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The games between West Ham and Liverpool have mostly produced high-scoring encounters and the past five meetings have witnessed a minimum of four goals. A repeat seems likely with Klopp’s side averaging more than two goals in their previous five away trips. Our total goals prediction is to go with more than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Mohamed Salah has once more been the standout performer for Liverpool and he is currently leading the league scoring charts with 16 goals. The Egypt international recently drew blank against Leicester after scoring in successive games but he can be backed to find the net against West Ham after doing so in each of his previous three meetings while opening the scoresheet twice. Our first goalscorer prediction is to go with Salah.
