Liverpool FC Starting XI Prediction at West Ham United

Share

Liverpool gained another point on Manchester City in the league title race this past week, upping the margin to five, but they could see that deficit reduced to two by the time they kick off on Monday night. The defending champions host Arsenal Sunday in what is no doubt the weekend’s headline match-up.

Monday night brings another northwest of England vs. London club match-up as the Reds tangle with West Ham United.

Hammers boss Manuel Pellegrini believes his team can upset the current table toppers.

“Of course we can beat Liverpool on Monday because every team can win every match in the Premier League,” Pellegrini said. “I don’t know if they are nervous because I was not there in midweek. It will depend on their performance rather than the nerves.

“We want to beat Liverpool. We cannot play on nerves because they have top players who can change the game at any time.

“We need to play at high pace like we did at home to Arsenal and Manchester United and other clubs.”

  1. Again Klopp got it wrong about Gomez injury. An injury prone athlete will normally take more time to fitness after being injured. Why Klopp has been so optimistic about his recovery? Forget about Clyne being loaned out. If a player has no heart for a team better let him go. And so. No replacement? Three potential defenders have been struggling with hamstring issues(Fabinho, Lovren, Milner). On top of it Lovren was responsible of two goals we conceded against Arsenal and City. Enough reasons to seek reinforcement in defence in January. Any dude can develop such assessment. No, only Klopp think otherwise, and he put us in the mess we are today. I’m not here on a blaming contest, but after decades of being titleless I believe buying one decent (one) defender in January was the slightest and smartest move. I said it before, even if Liverpool win the PL title, we Kops will have an acid taste in the mouth. People can struggle for no reason like we do. For CL Final it was no different. We found ourselves we a skeleton squad after Can and Ox injuries. Last season we functioned with only 13 viable players. Not enough if you want to make history over Europe. Above all, Klopp is the only manager who change a win team, the reason we are always out of all domestic cups. Only luck can save Liverpool. Need to know when and how to catch it. We missed the 7 points lead twice…

  2. nicodemus says:

    klop must start benching sala coz he does not contribute less in the game even if he scores a lot of goals for us coz other team knows every time we play sala is in the team

  3. Klop will cost LFC the cup if he keeps playing Sala. To me Sala’s style is known to the opponents and it is declining.
