Historically, the Hammers have had an abysmal report at Anfield, and certainly, prior to now 60 years, the Reds have solely been crushed twice on their very own patch by the east Londoners.
The final time they had been defeated at house was in August 2015, and earlier than that we have now to go all the best way again to September 1963, per 11 v 11, to discover a time when West Ham left Merseyside with the factors.
Due to this fact, on paper no less than, it needs to be a simple win for Jurgen Klopp’s aspect this weekend.
Nonetheless, if complacency creeps into the host’s play, it might show deadly to their very own possibilities of securing the three factors, and Klopp himself was filled with reward for his subsequent opponents.
“So many extraordinarily robust opponents and West Ham are one in every of them,” he was quoted by the BBC as saying to the media forward of the sport.
“It’s a very thrilling venture and I’m actually comfortable for David [Moyes]. Even with Declan Rice out they give the impression of being actually good. [James] Ward-Prowse was a brilliant signing, and [Lucas] Paqueta isn’t a brand new signing however he’s a brilliant participant.”
Ward-Prowse has been a delight to observe it’s true, nevertheless, all of West Ham’s summer season signings seem to have labored to date.
We’ve but to see the very best of Mohammed Kudus and Konstantinos Mavropanos, however neither have had as a lot sport time as the previous Southampton captain and Edson Alvarez.
They’ve carried out nicely within the time they’ve had on the pitch, nevertheless, seemlessly slotting into the squad and, over the course of the season, will certainly show to be studious purchases.
