Michael Owen, the former Liverpool forward, predicts a 1-0 victory for his former club against Westham United.
Westham will today host Liverpool in the English Premier League, a game expected to be feisty.
Liverpool are 4th on the PL table, only two points ahead of the Hammers. Klopp’s side are coming into this game with a 3-1 victory against Mourinho’s side, Tottenham.
The win was a big boost for Liverpool, who have gone through a rough patch after losing to Burnley at Anfield. Klopp hopes that the win against Tottenham will get them back on form.
The Hammers have a had a smooth run winning their last four Premier League matches in a row. Winning today’s game against Liverpool will extend their winning form to seven in all competitions. The Hammers will also be unbeaten in their last nine games.
Westham are currently in good form under David Moyes. Winning against the Reds will see them move to the fourth position in the Premier League Table.
According to Michael Owen, Liverpool will emerge victorious against Westham.
“I think this could be tight. Liverpool will look to dominate possession, and I think one goal may be enough to clinch the points for the Reds.”
Liverpool to move to third position if they win
The Reds winning this game will see them move above Leicester, who are currently at position three on the table. Jurgen Klopp looks forward to closing in the gap between them and Manchester City, the league leaders.
Klopp’s side have had a poor run since late December. Their inconsistency led them to drop from the first to fourth position. The Reds have to improve in their performance if they are to be title contenders.
Winning against Spurs was a good sign that they are back to their best form. Klopp believes a lot has to change to improve their performance, especially with some of their crucial players injured.
The Reds will be happy with the return of Fabinho who was out due to an injury. His return will be a boost as they prepare to face Manchester City next week.
