In the 5th game of this Premier League season, West Ham will host the freshly returned in Uefa Champions League formation, Liverpool. To me it seems like a game with a clear favourite and that is Liverpool.
They got a little lucky in the mid-week game against the Bulgarians from Ludogorets winning in the extra time by a penalty scored by Steven Gerrard and thinking that at 0-0 Ludogorets had hit the post once. Anyway, 3 points are 3 points and Liverpool can focus 100% on this game. Another important thing for Liverpool is that Balloteli has managed to score in UCL especially since Sturridge is still injured.
West Ham is on the 13th place after 4 games with 1win,1 draw and 2 lost games. They have scored 6 goals and conceded 7. The interesting thing is that they won all their 4 points on the road, at home losing both of their games. They have lost 1-3 vs Southampton and 0-1 agains Tottenham.
Liverpool have won 2 games and lost 2 so with only 6 points so far they are in a lack of points and are already way behind Chelsea in the fight for the title they will probably give their best and try to take all the 3 points.. On the road Liverpool have lost 1-3 to Manchester City and won 3-0 against Tottenham.
The last 5 meetings at West Ham between these 2 teams have ended with 4 wins for Liverpool and 1 win for West Ham. Also every single game of this last 5 have ended with over 2.5 games and thinking that Liverpool is a team that scores a lot but also concedes many goals (6-5 this season) is likely that this game will also end with both teams to score but with Liverpool scoring more than West Ham.
