West Ham v Liverpool: Will pair play out another draw in capital?

| 13.05.2017

Liverpool head to London Stadium with their top-four hopes hanging in the balance. A win is the only result which will do any real good for Jurgen Klopp’s men. But to do that, they’ll have to end their four-game winless record against West Ham United.

The last three clashes have been score draws after 90 minutes, with one of those won in extra-time by the Irons. Two of those finished 1-1 after normal time, and a repeat of that scoreline is 13/2.

So, who could we see among the goals?

With Hammers’ star Michail Antonio ruled out through injury, it could be Andre Ayew’s turn to step up again. The Ghanaian has netted in four of his last 11 outings, including being the last goalscorer on two of those occasions.

He’s 3/1 to grab another against the Reds, while 9/1 says he closes out the scoring once again.

For Liverpool’s part, it’s Roberto Firmino who’s doing the business on the road – netting in two of the Anfield outfit’s last three away games. And he’s 6/4 to score in the capital.

However, neither side have been especially high-scoring of late. Six of the Irons’ last seven games have produced three goals of fewer, and the same with all of the Merseyside club’s last five fixtures.

So while it may pay out with modest returns, the 2/5 for Under 3.5 Goals looks like an absolute banker.

However, if you’re looking for a plausible longer-odds shot, we’ve got one which could well come good.

West Ham have thrown away 22 points from winning positions in the Premier League this term, while three of the Reds’ last nine league victories have seen them come from behind to claim all three points.

So the 9/1 for Jurgen Klopp’s side to come from behind and win looks well worth a flutter.

In the match betting, there’s 11/4 on offer for the pair to produce another draw, with West Ham 21/5 shots and Liverpool priced up as 7/10 favourites.
