LIV vs WHU Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Liverpool’s title credentials face a daunting prospect as they face West Ham United in an away game in the Premier League at London Stadium, on Monday night (IST).
Manuel Pellegrini insisted in his pre-match interviews that his side can beat Premier League leaders Liverpool on their own patch.
The former Manchester City manager is not saying anything out of proportion as the Hammers have achieved some wonderful results at home against big teams. They played a 0-0 draw against Chelsea and beat Manchester United 3-1 the following week.
While the most recent game against a big team also reminds about a wonderful result as Declan Rice’s 2nd half goal proved to be the difference.
Those results are the exact contrivance that is expected from Hammers considering the quality they have this season. The Hammers spent some big amounts on new players and that’s the reason for their slow start to the campaign. Though the team can still improve a lot, West Ham are definitely not the tram which met Liverpool on opening day in the Premier League.
For the reasons above, Jurgen Klopp admitted that West Ham are playing like a top-6 team in the last couple of months. Liverpool must be on guard for the whole 90 minutes if they are to secure all three points in this match.
By the time Reds play this game, the gap at the top could reduce to just two points depending on the result between Manchester City and Arsenal.

LIV vs WHU Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Liverpool have dominated this fixture in recent years and are coming into this game on the back of four straight wins against West Ham. The corresponding fixture also ended in a one-sided 4-0 win for the Reds, taking their goals tally against the Hammers to 16 in the last four games.
Indeed, West Ham improved a lot since their opening day loss to Liverpool and they are more than capable of taking a big scalp in this game.
But Liverpool are aiming to stay clear in their pursuit for the first Premier League title in 30 years. Expect a thoroughly professional game from the Reds.
An away win is our call.
