West Ham's list of 'reasons to watch Liverpool game' is genuinely embarrassing

Liverpool v West Ham United - Premier League

West Ham will be the latest team tasked with halting Liverpool's incredible run when the two sides meet at the London Stadium tonight.

Nobody is banking on them, though. 

The strain of the job is already telling on David Moyes' face as he attempts to drag his new side out of a relegation scrap. 

The Hammers go into the game joint-18th with Bournemouth on 23 points and could be without Łukasz Fabiański and Robert Snodgrass - both will undergo late tests. 

All in all, it could be a very long night for the hosts, with Liverpool having won 14 on the spin in the Premier League. 

The Reds have also conceded just one goal in their last eight league games.

With all that in mind, it could be tough to convince West Ham fans to turn up to Stratford in their thousands especially as they continue to protest against the running of the club by David Gold, David Sullivan and Karren Brady. 

Fear not, though, as the club's official website have published an article listing 'five reasons' to watch the game. Fasten your seatbelts - here are their five. 

1. Adrian's return

Former West Ham goalkeeper Adrian - who David Gold once insulted on Twitter - will indeed be on the bench for Liverpool. Exciting stuff. 


Bored of VAR yet? West Ham aren't. They haven't forgotten how Sadio Mane's goal against them last year could have been ruled out, but wasn't. 


3. Michail Antonio

Now Antonio's record against the league-leaders is actually very impressive, scoring five. 


4. Reds on a roll...

Antonio may offer some hope, but for those who may be deterred by the thought of watching the rest of this West Ham team, there's always Liverpool. Jurgen Klopp's men haven't lost a league game in their last 40. Long may it continue!


5. Trent Alexander-Arnold 

Or should that be 'Terrific Trent Alexander-Arnold'? Plenty of us have visited Barcelona to watch Lionel Messi, so it's only right that the pilgrims are beginning to flock to see Liverpool's right-back in action. The 21-year-old has 11 assists in all competitions this season and nobody would bet against him adding to it tonight. 


Dear, oh dear. 

It's lucky we have these handy screenshots, as West Ham have amended the article since it was first written. 

The Liverpool references have been taken out and replaced with equally tenuous connections, such as back-up goalkeeper David Martin having been on the Reds' books for four years (without actually making a league appearance). 

It's very wise that they've changed it - but the internet does not unsee these things. 

Just when you thought West Ham's season couldn't get any more embarrassing...
