West Ham host Liverpool at the London Stadium

Two sides scoring goals for fun meet at the London Stadium for an intriguing Premier League contest on Wednesday night, as West Ham United play host to Liverpool.

David Moyes‘s team ran riot in a 4-0 win over Bournemouth at the weekend, while their Merseyside counterparts scraped by Nottingham Forest in a five-goal Anfield thriller.

Given the seven-goal spectacular that unfolded in Newcastle United’s drubbing of Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, West Ham’s demolition job of Bournemouth went under the radar somewhat, but it did not make the three points any less vital for the goal-happy Hammers.

While having a game in hand on most of their relegation rivals, West Ham are only six points clear of the drop zone and are not home and dry just yet, but Moyes’s side have certainly kicked into gear at a crucial time, going unbeaten in their last five games in all tournaments and losing just one of their last 10.

With so much still on the line for two sides who have had few problems finding the back of the net in recent matches, an open and end-to-end encounter should ensue at the London Stadium, especially with Liverpool still prone to a defensive lapse or two.

As was the case in this fixture last season, clean sheets are unlikely to be on the menu, and we can picture West Ham holding out for a high-scoring draw as Liverpool’s inconsistency on the road continues.
