The team from Merseyside had 10 days of rest after the victory over Porto (5:0) in the first match of the 1/8 final of the Champions League.
Such “window” had occurred because of the early Cup tournaments knockout and that is why the football players of Klopp have an opportunity to get ready to the match against West Ham.
In 3 away matches the Reds were destroying their rivals having gained the total score 10:0. But at home the team had ended the match against Tottenham in a draw (2:2) and lost to West Bromwich Albion (2:3) just after the victory over Manchester City (4:3). But if the defense is not always effective, the attack is creating the goal moments regularly.
According to expected points Liverpool had to have 3 points more than it has now. All this points the Reds haven’t gained during the home matches.
Thanks to the goals scored by rare participants Marko Arnautović and Chicharito Hernández, the Hammers were able to win over Watford (2:0) during the last meeting.
Several important draws, especially against grandees, have helped West Ham to stabilize its position at standings. But this position is still weak if we speak about ambitious team (12th line).
Chicharito who is experiencing pressure because of his big salary and low effectiveness, had score 3 goals in 4 last rounds. He had scored 7 accurate shots this season and this fact tells that the forward had used to the team at last.
The team of Klopp had destroyed the Hammers in two last matches with the score 4:1 and 4:0. But the matter is that these matches were spent in London. Home matches of the team from Merseyside are worse – 270 minutes without wins (2 draws and one defeat).
