Liverpool will look to keep up their title challenge today with a win over West Ham United at Upton Park.

The Reds are in a sensational run of form this year, which has seen them win 11 of their 13 Premier League games, drawing the other two games, and that string of results has catapulted Brendan Rodgers' side into the title race.

A win over the Hammers today would be their ninth consecutive victory, and spearheaded by strikers Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge, Liverpool certainly have the firepower to notch another win, which would see them return to the top of the table.

But Sam Allardyce's West Ham have also experienced a fine run of results since the turn of the year, and Monday's 2-1 win over Sunderland all but secured their status as a Premier League team for next season.

Their record against Liverpool doesn't lend itself to success today though, as the Hammers have won just two of their last 21 meetings with the Reds - but with confidence high and in front of their home crowd, West Ham will believe they can grab a result against Liverpool.
