West Ham 13-6-8 lost its FA Cup match 3-1 to Southampton on Wednesday, but it is fifth in the Premier League table and beat the Reds 3-2 in the first meeting in November.
That is one reason for its prolific goal number, as it leads the EPL with 70.
Which will falter — West Ham's European ambitions or Liverpool's title challenge? Liverpool defeated Chelsea in the EFL Cup in penalty kicks in its midweek match.
They went into the game on the back of a long unbeaten league run and free-scoring record away from home, having scored at least three goals in each of their five away games in the Premier League prior to the trip to West Ham.
