West Ham vs. Liverpool: 6 Key Battles to Watch

The last time that West Ham hosted Liverpool, they defeated the Reds 3-0.

However, despite the Hammers' most recent home win against the Reds, they were beaten 3-1 at Anfield later in 2010-11 thanks to Glen Johnson, Dirk Kuyt and Maxi Rodriguez. Although two of those veterans who always managed to get goals when needed are gone, let's not forget Steven Gerrard's history as a Hammers destroyer.

If the Reds can manage to take all three points at home, they will be level on points with West Ham in the English Premier League table at 22 and potentially move up to eighth place.

It is sure to be a hard-fought battle.

Sam Allardyce's squad are expected to be riding their victory wave from the Chelsea match all the way, while Liverpool have recovered from their loss to Tottenham with two straight victories.

Upton Park will be rocking as the Reds come looking to make the most of their December schedule. Defeating West Ham at home is the next step in making sure they fight their way back up the table before the January transfer window.
