Michael Owen predicts Liverpool v West Ham FA Cup tie

Liverpool will face Premier League rivals West Ham United in the FA Cup on Saturday evening.

Michael Owen has predicted on Colossusbets.com that Liverpool will win against West Ham United this weekend.

The Reds will take on West Ham at Anfield in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Saturday evening.

Former Liverpool striker Owen has backed the home team to win the encounter and progress to the fifth round of the prestigious cup competition.

“West Ham have already done the double over Liverpool this season by an aggregate of 5-0, and are a place and two points above them in in the league too, but I just favour the home side 2-1,” the former Manchester United striker has written on Colossusbets.com.

Both Liverpool and West Ham will take on the game seriously, and one suspects that the two starting lineups will be quite strong.

Playing at home will given Jurgen Klopp’s side an advantage, but the Hammers have done better than the Reds so far this season.

Slaven Bilic’s side will head to Anfield with confidence, and one should not be surprised if the London outfit win against the Merseyside outfit.

Liverpool are seventh in the Premier League table at the moment with 34 points from 23 matches, while West Ham are a place and two points above them.
