PL Match Preview : Liverpool vs West Ham

Liverpool were pegged back from 3-1 up to lose 4-3 at Bournemouth last week and Jurgen Klopp will demand a much-improved performance from his players on Sunday. The return of Joel Matip in defence is a huge boost for the Reds.

A 5-1 thumping at the hands of Arsenal last weekend means West Ham have failed to win their last five league games as pressure mounts on Slaven Bilic. They did, however, secure a 3-0 win in this fixture last season and Bilic would love nothing more than a repeat of the victory.

That is unlikely to happen, though, with Liverpool overwhelming favourites to secure the win. Naijabet.com

Joe Gomez and Sheyi Ojo are both available to Jurgen Klopp, though are unlikely to start.

PL Match Preview : Manchester United vs Tottenham

Manchester United are playing well but are being punished for their inability to convert the chances they are creating. They are six points behind Tottenham and a defeat here would surely put an end to their chances of finishing in the top four let alone the title.

Tottenham have started to find some rhythm in recent weeks and also need a win to keep pace with the four teams in front of them. Mauricio Pochettino’s side start the weekend three points behind Manchester City, although that gap could be more by the time they kick off on Sunday.

Jose Mourinho’s side haven’t won back-to-back games in all competitions since September but the need to beat Tottenham here is huge and Mourinho will ensure the players know that before the game.

This is a tough match to call, in which Tottenham should be very confident of getting a result. The way in which United are playing, they need to be at least two goals ahead with five minutes remaining to see out the win. Place your bet on Naijabet.com
