Paul Ince states his prediction for West Ham v Liverpool FC
The Liverpool FC legend is tipping the Merseyside outfit to beat West Ham at the London Stadium on Saturday afternoon
Paul Ince is tipping Liverpool to secure a straightforward win against West Ham United at the London Stadium on Saturday evening.
The Merseyside outfit ended a three-game winless run in the Premier League with a 3-0 victory over promoted side Huddersfield Town at Anfield last weekend.
Liverpool made the breakthrough thanks to Daniel Sturridge’s stylish finish before Roberto Firmino and Georginio Wijnaldum polished off the Premier League win.
The Reds eased to a 3-0 win against Slovenian outfit Maribor in the Champions League group stage to cement their place at the top of their group ahead of Sevilla and Spartak Moscow.
West Ham squandered a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 with the Premier League’s basement club Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park last weekend to leave Slaven Bilic on the brink.
Former Liverpool captain Ince is backing Jurgen Klopp’s side to make it a third successive win in the English capital this weekend.
“That was a much-needed win for Liverpool against Huddersfield last week, as people had really started to ask a lot of questions about them,” Ince told the Daily Express.
“This week, I reckon they’ll follow that up with another relatively straight-forward win over West Ham. Though I do find it really tough to back their defence not to concede.”
Liverpool finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last term to secure a return to the Champions League.
The Reds signed four players in the summer transfer window to bolster their squad ahead of their European return.
Klopp was appointed as Brendan Rodgers’ successor in October 2015.
