The below article is for a previous encounter. However, we will also be showing todays match live inside the members area!. Liverpool will be looking to put some early pressure on their title rivals with a comfortable victory over West Ham when the two teams clash on Saturday. Watch all the live Premiership action here on Live Sport Network.
The Reds have had a less than desired start to their new season losing two of their first three matches but look to have rallied around with two wins in their last two games. However the early setbacks have seen them go six points behind league leaders Chelsea and three behind arch rivals Manchester United.
After a nervous game against Bolton Wanderers before the international break, Liverpool put up an excellent performance to register a 4-0 win over Burnley with Yossi Benayoun scoring a hat trick while Dirk Kuyt added a fourth. Kuyt once again came to Liverpool's rescue in their Champions League match against minnows Debrecen with the Dutch striker scoring the only goal of the match to help his side start their European campaign with a victory.
Manager Rafa Benitez will be aware that his side will have to improve on that performance against a West Ham side that has always proved to be difficult to play against at their home ground. While Liverpool had dropped two vital points against West Ham at Anfield, they secured a comfortable 3-0 win at Upton Park with Steven Gerrard scoring a brace.
West Ham will be desperate for a victory after managing just four points from their first four games. After guiding the Hammers to a respectable ninth place last season, manager Gianfranco Zola will be aiming for at least another top half finish this season and will be aware that his side can ill afford to drop points at home after a poor start.
The Hammers suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat away to Wigan Athletic last weekend with Hugo Rodallega scoring the winner 10 minutes into the second half. Watch West Ham vs Liverpool Live online on Live Sport Network, the leading source to watch live Premiership action on the web.
