Liverpool will be hoping to keep their title challenge on track when they welcome West Ham to Anfield on Saturday evening. Jurgen Klopp’s men have a game in hand over table-toppers Manchester City, and victory over the Hammers would take them to within three points of the Citizens.
West Ham, meanwhile, have dipped a little bit over the past six weeks or so, nevertheless, they are still in contention for a top-four spot, so the stakes are high for both sides.
We are looking forward to this encounter at Freebets, so we have picked out three juicy tips for you to get your teeth stuck into.
Can Mo get to 20?
Mohamed Salah has been prolific this season, and that might be a bit of an understatement. With 19 goals to his name, nothing is stopping him from breaking the 30-goal barrier this campaign, and he’s always hungry. Indeed, Liverpool’s front three are 1,2, and 3 in the Premier League scoring charts, and they have netted a combined 42 goals between them.
Salah’s confidence will be sky-high, especially after Liverpool’s EFL Cup triumph last weekend, and there’s rarely a game that goes by when he doesn’t find the target. He’s priced at 11/4 to score the first goal of the game with bet365 and we can have little arguments with that price, so it’s worth getting behind the Egyptian.
Even stevens after 60 minutes
In their last league outing against Leeds, the Reds were ruthless as they romped to an emphatic 6-0 win, and they were out of sight within the first 35 minutes. Klopp’s charges were breathtakingly brilliant, and Leeds couldn’t live with them.
However, in some games, Liverpool haven’t always been the fastest out of the traps. Nevertheless, for West Ham, they will be mindful of Liverpool’s attacking potency, and the key to getting a result on Merseyside, will be if they can negotiate periods of the game without conceding.
Paddy Power has an interesting minute by minute market, which could tempt you. They are offering a price of 12/5 for both teams to be level after 60 minutes. This may pique your interest, and depending on how the game pans out, you imagine David Moyes will be delighted if it is even stevens after the hour mark.
Liverpool to edge win
Liverpool are single-minded in their pursuit of the title, and they are still on course to win an unprecedented quadruple, as they could add the Champions League, Premier League and FA Cup to the League Cup that is already safely secured in the trophy cabinet.
While the correct score market can often be tricky, William Hill is offering a price of 8/1 for the Reds to win 2-1. In some of their most recent league meetings, games have been decided by the odd goal, so this could be worth exploring.
