Brendan Rodgers will be hoping to build on the 5-1 thrashing we handed out to Norwich City on Wednesday evening, when we host West Ham United at Anfield on Saturday – 3pm kick off UK time – in what will be our third match in the space of seven days. The Hammers suffered a 0-1 defeat to Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Tuesday evening and currently sit three points above the relegation zone with 13 points from a possible 42.
Despite only winning one of their seven away games (3-0 against Spurs) in the Premier League, the Hammers have the joint best defensive record (shared with Arsenal) on their travels having conceded just five goals, although their total of four goals scored is the joint third lowest in the league.
Following our Suarez inspired victory over the Canaries in mid-week, we’ve now picked up 18 points from a possible 21 at Anfield and only Manchester City – with 29 goals scored and two conceded – have scored more, conceded less and have a better goal difference than we do at home this season.
