Make no mistake, this is going to be a tough game for Liverpool this weekend. West Ham have impressed so far this season and I believe they are a lot better than a 12th place position suggests. The Hammers have already faced Manchester City, Leicester, Wolves and Arsenal and deserved at least the seven points they gained from those encounters.

City did dominate the second half but West Ham created chances – aside from Antonio’s goal – and I expect them to be a threat at Anfield on Saturday afternoon.

Liverpool are going to be without Fabinho as well as Virgil Van Dijk and Joel Matip, which gives an opportunity to Rhys Williams. Facing Michail Antonio is not the easiest task for a 19-year-old on your Premier League debut and I expect West Ham to have some success as an attacking force. Ultimately though, I do believe that Liverpool will edge this one.

I did consider taking the 17/2 with BetVictor on a 2-1 home victory but will play it safe and simply back a home win and Both Teams To Score at 6/4 with Boylesports.

I wouldn’t be surprised if West Ham scored a couple but still lost this match and scoured the goalscoring market looking to back either Jarad Bowen or Tomas Soucek. However, I was really surprised with the 15/2 888 are offering on Pablo Fornals in the Anytime Goalscorer marker. The Spaniard has only found the net once this season but has started every game, had nine shots and has an xG of 1.87.

David Moyes clearly likes Fornals. He is a certain starter and has completed at least 77 minutes in each of his sides last five league games. The likes of Antonio, Bowen and Soucek are all half the price or shorter, so from a price perspective, Fornals is certainly the value.

I have loved numbers and sport throughout my life, so betting was a natural step. I started writing my own betting column at university and have continued throughout my adult life. I bet on football, golf and the NFL mainly but two flies going up a wall could also capture my attention. I am a West Brom fan and also follow teams in other sports but I think it's fair to say that no side compare with The Baggies!
