A Final Flurry
Declan Rice has scored twice in as many matches and the West Ham midfielder will now lead the charge against Liverpool on Wednesday.
Rice Rice Baby
As we enter the midweek round of Premier League fixtures, the relegation battle has taken on a slightly different complexion. There are still nine teams that are desperately trying to avoid the drop, but they have now been split into two sub-sections.
Five teams can be considered to be in real danger, the four above can be marked as slightly safer and thankfully for West Ham, they find themselves grouped in the quartet rather than quintet of struggling efforts.
A status that has been cultivated after an uptick in league form. David Moyes’ men have flirted with the bottom three only recently but now seven points from the last nine on offer has managed to put considerable distance between themselves and the drop zone.
Distance that sees the Hammers start the midweek schedule lying 13th in the Premier League table (although this could be 14th by the time Wednesday comes around) and with a six-point buffer between themselves and Everton who are five places worse off.
While it is Everton’s Merseyside neighbours that make the trip to the London Stadium in just a few hours and there is no doubt that Liverpool have also found something in the way of resurgence in recent weeks.
The Anfield outfit are unbeaten in their last four league outings and have picked up eight points from the last 12 on offer. A run that has reignited their hopes of a European invitation and now it all depends on which one they want to accept.
A seventh-place finish would mean entry to the Europa Conference League, the two positions above would mean an entry to the Europa League instead and when you consider Tottenham’s current woes, fifth in the Premier League is still very much up for grabs.
As always, there is that slight conundrum as to whether a big six club really wants to be operating in one of UEFA’s lesser club competitions and Liverpool’s supporters would arguably rather finish eighth and miss out on the continent altogether.
However, there does not seem to be any signs that Jurgen Klopp and his players are chucking things away and with the additional carrot of extra prize money being afforded to higher finishes, Liverpool will treat this away day as important as any other.
With that in mind, our latest bet builder is now up for grabs, and it looks like this:
- West Ham win
- Jarrod Bowen to score anytime
- Both teams to score
For my latest bet builder offering, I have opted for Liverpool rather than West Ham to have their recent bubble burst. The Hammers are in the groove both home and abroad and the fact that the Reds made heavy work of Nottingham Forest last Saturday is tipping me towards a home win.
Not only that, but I think Jarrod Bowen will find himself on Wednesday’s scoresheet. He managed to find the net against Arsenal recently and I think he will adorn himself to the Hammers’ support once more. Add both teams to score into the mix as well and this one is priced at 11/1.
