Liverpool v West Ham Odds

West Ham have been one of the busiest clubs during the summer transfer window and it will be fascinating to see how they fare this weekend at Anfield.

New coach Manuel Pellegrini could well chose to start both Andriy Yarmolenko and Felipe Anderson in the match who both arrived for big money and that could mean we see an entertaining clash against Liverpool.

Under Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool have been the great entertainers with Mane, Salah and Firmino expected to pick up where they left off in front of goal. Widely considered to be the best front three in the league, and there is a chance they can get even better.

Liverpool went through last season unbeaten at home in the Premier League at Anfield which is not a record to ignore With that in mind, the home team are as short as 2/9 with Bet Victor to claim the three points, with the same firm rating West Ham as big as 12/1.

Expect Goals in Entertaining Clash

Liverpool are always good value for goals given their attacking prowess and new signings Naby Keita and Alisson are also likely to start in front of their adoring fans which should mean we get a sizzling atmosphere.

The two games between these teams last term saw Liverpool win 4-1 both home and away but both matches were open affairs. Pellegrini is likely to play it tighter given his experience as a coach but there is more than enough talent on show to ensure both sets of players have enough confidence to attack.

Over 2.5 goals in the game is a no brainer at around 1/2 with Coral but the greater bet comes in the BTTS market.

Liverpool have looked excellent in pres-season and should win but the bet here is to back both teams to score at even money with Four of the last five meetings between the clubs have seen both teams hit the back of the net and that record can extend in the first game of the campaign at Anfield.
