Michael Owen is tipping Liverpool to ease to a resounding win against West Ham United at the London Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The Reds have managed to recover from a different run of results with back-to-back victories in the Premier League and the Champions League over the past week.

Liverpool ended a three-game winless run in the Premier League with a 3-0 victory over Huddersfield Town at Anfield last weekend thanks to goals from Daniel Sturridge, Roberto Firmino and Georginio Wijnaldum.

The Reds had to be patient in their mid-week Champions League fixture before Mohamed Salah finally made the breakthrough in the 49th minute to settle Liverpool’s nerves against Maribor.

German midfielder Emre Can and Sturridge polished off a 3-0 victory over the Slovenian side to cement Liverpool’s spot at the top of Champions League Group E.

The Reds were 4-0 winners against West Ham in their penultimate game of the 2016-17 season to help the Merseyside outfit secure a top-four finish.

Former Liverpool striker Owen is backing Jurgen Klopp’s men to ease to a comfortable win against the Hammers at the London Stadium on Saturday evening.

“This promises to be a terrific game under the London Stadium lights and I think Liverpool can follow up their 4-0 win from the corresponding game last season although the scoreline on that occasion flattered the Reds,” Owen told BetVictor.

Liverpool finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last season to secure a return to the Champions League.
