West Ham vs Liverpool 14th May 2017: EPL Preview and Predictions

Philippe Coutinho starred as Liverpool emphatically maintained control of its Champions League qualification hopes with a 4-0 win over West Ham on Sunday.

Substitute Robert Snodgrass volleyed narrowly wide in the final stages, but in truth, West Ham looked a well-beaten side.

"Nobody will go into this game and underestimate Middlesbrough".

Diafra Sakho's season is over while Michail Antonio and Pedro Obiang are still on the sidelines with hamstring and ankle knocks respectively.

The Hammers are on a good run of form against the Merseyside club, unbeaten in their last five games in all competitions, winning three of the same.

Pep and Jurgen will already be disappointed as they have no chance of a trophy and missing out on the top four would make that so much worse. It will not be easy, but if Klopp's men perform like they did today, there is no reason why they can not take the full three points to polish off a much improved season.

Bilic had called on his players to build on that performance to remain on track for a top-half finish, but Liverpool took them apart in the second half and came out on top comfortable winners at the London Stadium.

WEST HAM'S lap of honour is in front of an nearly empty London Stadium after thousands of fans left the ground following their heavy defeat to Liverpool. Following Arsenal's 4-1 win at Stoke City, both teams are on the same goal difference of +29 with the Gunners a point behind them.

Washington's Oubre suspended for key playoff game
The Wizards have no issue holding their ground or fighting for more, as they've shown nine games into the playoffs. The Washington Wizards and the Boston Celtics duke it out in a pivotal Game 5 at the TD Garden on Wednesday.

The win boosted the Reds two points clear of Man City and four ahead of Arsenal with a week to play in the season, handing the pressure back to their rivals.

Daniel Sturridge made only his sixth start of the season, taking the place of Roberto Firmino, who missed out due to injury. Sadio Mane is out for the season with a knee problem, but should be back before the start of next season. We always had to manage the intensity with him.in the game he actually didn't really feel it. But we don't care about their wishes or what aims they have.

"We were a really deserved victor".

As far as betting is concerned, we are not getting the best price on Liverpool so I would avoid that bet if possible.

"It was a fantastic game but hard". "I thought we did really well".

'I spoke to him about the future, ' said Klopp. "That is the way I'm thinking". He's an instinctive footballer and a fantastic striker.

A versatile midfielder who is blessed with an excellent vision and fantastic technical abilities, the Spaniard seems like a tailor-made player in Klopp's system at Liverpool but it is never easy to lure a player away from Real Madrid.

"After losing at Tottenham a few weeks ago I completely ruled Arsenal out of the situation for the top four".
