West Ham United vs. Liverpool: Premier League – Match Preview

Liverpool know they realistically need to win both of their final two games to secure a Champions League spot next term.

They travel to West Ham United on Sunday, who ended Tottenham’s title hopes last weekend.

Manuel Lanzini’s second winner was the difference as the Hammers recorded a narrow win over their London rivals.

Liverpool were held at home by Southampton in a very poor fixture.

James Milner missed a late penalty which would have all but secured a top four birth for Liverpool.
