Ian Wright is backing West Ham United to beat Liverpool at London Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The Reds played out a disappointing goalless draw with Southampton at Anfield last weekend after James Milner missed a second-half penalty.

Liverpool are still in the Premier League’s top four despite their inconsistent run of from in the past couple of weeks.

The Merseyside outfit have won their last three Premier League games on the road thanks to victories over Stoke City, Watford and West Bromwich Albion.

Jurgen Klopp hasn’t beaten West Ham since taking over the reins from Brendan Rodgers back in October 2015.

Indeed, Liverpool battled from 2-0 down to salvage a 2-2 draw with the Hammers at Anfield in the Premier League earlier this season.

West Ham were surprise 1-0 winners against Tottenham Hotspur at London Stadium last weekend.

Speaking to The Sun Goals podcast ahead of Liverpool’s trip to the English capital on Sunday afternoon, former Arsenal striker Wright said:

“I just can’t see Liverpool winning it. It’s a tough game.

“West Ham have found form and are starting to feel comfortable in their home. I think West Ham will beat Liverpool.”
