      Pre Match: Liverpool v West Ham United (Monday 24.02.20 8PM K.O)

      Liverpool v West Ham United, Monday 24th February (20.00 KO)





      The Reds return to Anfield on Monday for what feels like the first time in about 25 years (19 days, to be exact). And depending on how City fare in a tricky away fixture to 3rd place Leicester, could very well have the opportunity to go 25 points clear at the top of the Premier League table, with 11 games left to play.

      The reverse leg of this fixture was played less than a month ago, having been rearranged due to the minor inconvenience of us being crowned World Champions. It was arguably our our easiest game of the season, looking more like an exhibition than a Premier League fixture, Liverpool coasted through the match and beat a lethargic West Ham 0-2 - And you'd be a brave man to bet against a different outcome this time around.

      Hendo could be a doubt, but apart from that I can't see anybody else from the first 11 being ruled out for this one. I don't expect Jürgen to rotate much having had a decent 5 day break after our European fixture in Madrid & I'm sure the players will have a point to prove after Tuesday's disappointment, so I'm going with a slightly conservative prediction, of 6-0 Liverpool

      Up the reds!

       West Ham are in for a hiding. Mismanaged club at boardroom level as well as the boot room. I believe they spent close on £100m on Fornal,Haller and Anderson. Wiltshire was signed on a free at £100k per week. Total mess. Noble is a decent player but I be very surprised if they keep the ball out of their net less than 5 times.

      I'm predicting a 4-0 win, we'll want to put the first leg defeat behind us.

      I think 5-0 simply because there will be a reaction after the frustration on Tuesday

      be more than happy with a 1=0 for the next 5 games there is only one aim now get this title won . Great opening post bringing back those memories of 2006 and a force of nature called Steven Gerrard once again doing what only he could.

      GERRRRRRAAAARRRRRRRDDDDD!!!

      Good game to get over the disappointment in Madrid.  Goalshooting practice required and I think we'll get it against West Ham.

      I'm sure Adrian will get himself out for some completely unnecessary warm-ups as well next to the away fans.

      Three or four goals for the redmen.  Keita to get a game.

      Not me, We need to start building some proper momentum before we next face Atletico, really find our scoring groove again, including from midfield.

      West ham in a bit of bother given their poor form over the past couple months and we should be looking to bounce back after lost in Madrid.

      Could see a couple changes but I think we will put out very strong XI, hopefully we can have very professional performance, put away a few goals and take one more step to the title.

      Don't want to be a party pooper but we can do the Harlem globetrotter stuff once we have the Silverware firmly locked up in the Trophy cabinet alongside the 18 others, the CL trophy, the super Cup and the  World Club Cup not a bad year so far.

      NB: Team no longer available

      Henderson will not be involved for this or the following three matches.

      I like Klopp's comments, talking about the Atletico loss stinging, compares to going from sunshine to hard rain. Hopefully the team's performance reflects this.

      Any reason why you think we need a defensive midfield against West Ham at home??  I want to see Fab, Ox and Keita start in midfield, hand out a proper arse kicking

      heavy metal football call it what you want, but pragmatic football until the title is ours is all we need we don't need to bulldoze teams and win 6-0
      Exhibition stuff can take place once we are crowned for the first time in 30 years League Champions.

      Has there been a game recently where you felt we were playing "exhibition stuff?" I think we've been as stingy re goals allowed as anybody for the past couple of months. But 2-0 is always better than 1-0.

      We should give this group a hiding. Especially after the disappointment of Madrid. Need to get back on track so we can wrap up this title sooner than later.

      Hendo will be out so I'd expect to see Keita, Ox and Fab in the midfield.

      With Hendo out I'm going for Gini, Ox and Fab. Not a huge fan of Keita and Ox in the same midfield as I find us lacking a bit of a combative presence. I know it's just West ham but I still like our midfield when they are a solid platform for the full backs to bomb on ahead.
