Liverpool vs West Ham: What has been said?
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp: “It’s really from sunshine to hardest rain – and that’s how it should be.
“If you really want to be successful and if you could be successful – what we could have been in that game – then it has to feel really bad and that’s how it felt.
“So yes, we want to put things right, even when it’s a different competition.”
West Ham manager David Moyes: “It’s never an easy place for any manager or team to go but we’ll go there and do everything we can to get a result.
“We’ve been in a difficult period of games, which I think is quite noticeable, but the players have done a good job.”
Liverpool vs West Ham: Match stats
Liverpool have won their last two home Premier League matches against West Ham United, scoring four goals in each victory. West Ham have won one of their last 46 away league games against Liverpool, a 3-0 victory in August 2015 under Slaven Bilic; the Hammers have failed to score in 31 of those 46 games. West Ham have only led for 126 minutes in 23 away Premier League matches combined against Liverpool, with 87 of those in their 3-0 win at Anfield in August 2015. West Ham have won just two of their last 41 away top-flight games against sides starting the day top of the table (D8 L31), beating Manchester United 1-0 in May 2007 and Manchester City 2-1 in September 2015. Liverpool have won their last 17 Premier League games, just one shy of the all-time English top-flight record set by Manchester City between August-December 2017 (18). Liverpool have won their last 20 home Premier League games, scoring 58 goals and conceding just 12. A win in this game would equal the English top-flight record for consecutive home wins, set by the Reds themselves between January and December 1972 when Bill Shankly’s side won 21 in a row. This is Liverpool’s first Premier League match on a Monday since a 1-1 draw at West Ham in February 2019. That game was the last time Liverpool failed to win a Premier League match having scored the first goal. Liverpool have earned 76 points from their 26 Premier League games this season – a victory would see them equal the overall tally that Manchester United’s treble winning side earned in 1998-99. West Ham manager David Moyes is yet to win an away match against Liverpool in all competitions, failing in 15 attempts (D7 L8) and losing the last three in a row with Man Utd, Sunderland and West Ham. Liverpool’s Sadio Mane has been directly involved in seven goals in his last five Premier League appearances against West Ham (4 goals, 3 assists), scoring in each of his last three against the Hammers.
