EPL: LFC vs WHUFC


Injury issues in the Liverpool defense continue into the middle of the week and that means an exciting competition is underway as West Ham head to Anfield. Fabinho had to be substituted in a 2-0 home win over Midtjylland in the Champions League and is a doubt for this match. While West Ham kept Tottenham and Man City in the previous two rounds. 

The Red Brigade's latest defending defeat occurred around half an hour into the recent Midtjylland game when Fabinho - playing at center back again in the absence of Virgil Van Dijk and Joel Matip - had to be replaced. out early. Both Van Dijk and Matip were injured in a 2-2 draw against Everton on October 17 - a knee problem that previously could have kept him out for several months. Fabinho was replaced by 19-year-old Rhys Williams, who made his fourth appearance for The Kop and has yet to play in the Premier League. Klopp decided not to launch Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane or Roberto Firmino, so the attacking trio will be relatively healthy in this match even though they both came on the bench in the second half. Liverpool have scored 4 goals against West Ham in 4 times in the last 7 meetings and are the team that won 3-2 in this match last season. They have conceded in all three matches at Anfield this season, so a home win and both teams scoring seems likely. Rookie Diogo Jota, after 4 appearances in the Premier League this season, has had 2 goals and has also opened fire in 2 recent consecutive matches. The Kop welcomed the good news when Xherdan Shaqiri and Alisson Becker both returned from injury. Liverpool are believed to have identified Bayern Munich defender David Alaba as a top target, the 28-year-old whose contract expires next June, but Alaba will be free to sign a pre-contract with a club. abroad in January Rookie Diogo Jota, after 4 appearances in the Premier League this season, has had 2 goals and has also opened fire in 2 recent consecutive matches.

West Ham may be in the bottom half of the Premier League after six games but arguably one of the surprises. The Hammers have won 8 points so far despite kicking off the campaign with a tough schedule. Bold wins over Leicester (3-0) and Wolves (4-0) have caught the eye, while their firepower has also been excellent in draws against Tottenham and Manchester City. Only 3 teams had better first-half records and West Ham had the potential to capitalize on injuries in the Liverpool defense, so letting both teams score in the first half is easy. In the last round, they drew 1-1 with Manchester City at home with Michail Antonio (18 ') lead and coach David Moyes was aiming to extend the contract.
