Dalglish Takes Reds To West Ham
Havin' a quid on him tomorrow i think, if i remember haha...
Liverpool travel to London tomorrow to face Avram Grant's struggling West Ham side. With the Hammers searching for a win in their pursuit to get out of the relegation zone and Liverpool looking for three points to strengthen their holds on 6th (and possibly breath some fear on the backs of Chelsea) it could be an interesting game tomorrow.
Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 8 matches and in that time we have only let in 3 goals. For any side coming up against a Liverpool team in that sort of form, they have to be weary.
A negative point for Liverpool however is the ever growing list of injuries. Andy Carroll, Steven Gerrard, Daniel Agger, Glen Johnson, Jonjo Shelvey, Fabio Aurelio and Martin Kelly all compile a list of doubtful options. Some players like Gerrard and Kelly could still feature but Dalglish i would think is going to be forced into playing a slightly different side tomorrow.
For West Ham they are without Upson, Dyer, Keane, Stanislas, Collison and Kurucz and Obinna is also a doubt for manager Avram Grant.
West Ham haven't managed to keep a clean sheet in 9 matches, put together with our run of form at the moment this has to spell goals. Luis Suarez should be able to start after sitting out the Europa League tie due to being ineligible.
The Reds have put three goals past West Ham in their last 4 meetings. Perhaps another indicator of a scoreline favoured to Liverpool tomorrow.
Whenever anyone thinks of West Ham at the moment, people always mention their talisman - Scott Parker. In order for West Ham to be in with any sort of chance tomorrow he needs to be on top form.
Dalglish I'm sure will instill the lads with some faith in the dressing room tomorrow whoever he chooses to field i think we have to be confident going into this.
