Our prediction for this Premier League match:
West Ham will look to make amends for a 2-0 loss to Tottenham when they take on Nottingham Forest in the Premier League round 25. The Hammers are desperate to escape the relegation zone, and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail in Saturday’s clash. Boss David Moyes is under big pressure ahead of the relegation six-pointer, but we do not believe that West Ham will have a better chance than this to get back on course. Lucas Paqueta and Maxwel Cornet should be the only absentees in the home team.
The Reds, on the other hand, did well to hold Man City to a draw at their City Ground, but given their poor away record (1-3-7), we do not believe that the visitors are capable of grabbing something from the London Stadium showdown. As for the away team, all Awoniyi, Kouyate, McKenna, Boly, Niakhate, and Biancone are out of contention, while Jesse Lingard is a major doubt.
