Liverpool currently sit eighth in the Premier League table and face 13th placed West Ham in the late kick off at Upton Park on Saturday afternoon. Last season Liverpool put six past the Hammers over their two matches and claimed the six points on offer.

This season however the Reds have only managed to score six goals in total over their opening four fixtures. Last year Liverpool had an overall scoring statistic of 2.6 goals a game.

If you compare that to their current stats of only 1.5 goals a game then you can assume that they’ll either need to start scoring more or become extremely difficult to score against if they hold any aspirations of lifting the league trophy.

West Ham are without Matt Jarvis, Andy Carroll, Kevin Nolan and Joey O’Brien while Liverpool’s Joe Allen and Daniel Sturridge will also the match, though Martin Skrtel returns to the defence.

With Mario Balotelli now off the mark having scored in the Champions league Brendan Rodgers will hope his form continues to improve and that Liverpool can get back to scoring ways. The Reds bagged over 100 goals last season and we think they’ll have no trouble in increasing their goal tally against the hammers this weekend. Our verdict: West Ham 0-2 Liverpool.
