Liverpool betting preview

With West Ham United playing host to Liverpool on Saturday, Hammers fans will be confident of seeing their team emerge with the points given the Reds' below-par performances so far this season.

Liverpool's two Barclays Premier League wins this season - over Southampton and Tottenham Hotspur - have both been followed by defeats for Brendan Rodgers' side as last season's league runners-up struggle to find consistency this season. Sam Allardyce's men will be keen to keep that pattern running following their midweek draw with Hull.

A nervy midweek win over European minnows Ludogorets will have done little for Liverpool's confidence - despite Steven Gerrard's late penalty wrapping up the three points.

Enner Valencia marked his Hammers debut with an absolute belter from distance against Hull and, if selected to make his home debut, the Ecuadorian is priced at 41/5 in the first goalscorer market.

Available to win both halves at 14/1, there is also value to be found in a half-time draw followed by an Irons win at 11/1.

In addition, with 15 goals scored in the last four meetings between the two sides, over 3.5 goals on Saturday is 6/4 with both teams to score at 18/5.
