Paul Merson is tipping West Ham United to hold Liverpool to a 1-1 draw in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Saturday evening.

The Reds head into the game fresh from their dramatic penalty shootout victory over Stoke City at Anfield as they booked their place in the League Cup final, where they will face Manchester City.

Liverpool have struggled to find consistent form since Jurgen Klopp was appointed as Brendan Rodgers’ successor at Anfield back in October.

The Reds were 5-4 winners over Norwich City in the Premier League last weekend and have only won four of their last 10 top-flight games.

And former Arsenal man Merson is tipping Liverpool to struggle to break down the Hammers at Anfield on Saturday evening, predicting a 1-1 draw.

Merson told Sky Sports: “I just can’t see Liverpool winning this game. West Ham have done the double over them and Liverpool have just played 120 mins plus penalties.

“I know they won and that puts more air into your lungs, but West Ham are a very good team. We saw that on Saturday Night Football against Manchester City.”
