Paul Merson predicts West Ham v Liverpool
Paul Merson is backing West Ham to prove a serious challenge for Liverpool at the London Stadium on Sunday afternoon
Paul Merson says he is hoping West Ham United can emulate their win over Tottenham by beating Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
The Reds head into the game looking to claim victory and keep alive their hopes of finishing in the top four this season.
Liverpool have set themselves up for a nervy end to the season following their goalless draw against Southampton last weekend.
That result left Jurgen Klopp’s men having to win their last two games if they want to guarantee a place in next season’s Champions League via a top four finish.
West Ham all but ended Tottenham’s title dream when they sealed a 1-0 win at the London Stadium in their most recent game.
And Arsenal legend Merson is backing the Hammers to prove another test for Liverpool when they head to east London on Sunday.
Speaking on Sky Sports News HQ on Friday morning, Merson said: “I’d like to think West Ham are going to put on show and it wasn’t just for the Tottenham game.”
