Liverpool – West Ham – In the last match of the 15th round of the English Premier League will face two teams that are last to the end of the season led the fight for a place in European competition, but this season the Reds provide a much better party and are currently third in the table, while “hammer” from London are just one place above the relegation zone and have as many as 18 points behind their next opponents. But because the team West Ham boasts that last year had far more success in their struggles but are also first in the championship celebrated at home and on the side, and after that, they deserve in the FA Cup. Start: 11.12.2016. – 16:30 CET
Of course it will all now be only an additional motive chosen coach Klopp to their revenge on Sunday in the same way his Anfield, where else this season in the championship with effect from five wins and only one draw. But the Reds were the last two performances have brought only one point, and this is by playing against Southampton 0: 0, while the last weekend in the clash with Bournemouth twice led by two goals, 2: 0 and 3: 1, but the eventually defeated by 4: 3. That is why they now have four points behind leaders Chelseja, which actually means that it is now against the “hammer” only interested in victory.
Otherwise, the team of Liverpool before this defeat of Bournemouth had a great championship run of eight wins and two draws, while they certainly did a good job and the League Cup, because after the home win over Tottenham and Leeds and won a place in the semifinals. However, during that period they violated one of the key players Coutinho so Klopp is still looking for the right solution at the position of the third failed, especially because of the violations even before sidelined Sturridge and Ings.
Probable lineups Liverpool: Karius – Clyne, Matip, Lovren, Milner – Lallana, Henderson, Can – Mane, Origi, Firmino
Unlike the Reds this season, which look very good footballers West Ham could not manage to find a way out of the crisis, so after the last home defeat to Arsenal, and this is the result of 5: 1, come just a step away from the relegation zone, as they have all point more than 18th Sunderland and 19th Hull. And all this is even worse for coach Bilic, now they are one of the most difficult away games in the league, so it will be very interesting to see how the “hammer” set on Sunday at Anfield.
All the more so because Bilic still has big problems with absences, especially on the defensive where his missing Kouyate, Cresswell, Collins, Byram and Oxford, while due to injury also sidelined and midfielders Antonio and the Torah and striker Sakho. However, there is a chance that on Sunday, perhaps even danced Kouyate, Cresswell and Antonio, but we think Bilic will not take risks with this under-recovered players, especially because it wants to preserve for the next lot of important matches in which at home to welcome team Burnley and Hull .
Probable lineups West Ham: Randolph – Arbeloa, Reid, Ogbonna, Masuaku – Noble, Obiang – Lanzini, Payet, Ayew – Carroll
