Liverpool travel to London on Saturday evening as they aim to thrive off their Champions League win over Ludogorets earlier in the week. Brendan will face Sam Allardyce's West Ham side who currently find themselves 13th in the league.
The injury list for Liverpool is still a pretty long one.
Ecuador striker Enner Valencia made a dream full debut for West Ham against Hull tonight scoring this 30 yard screamer in a standing position as the Hammers drew 2-2 with the hosts!
Valencia 24 who moved from Mexican top-flight side Pachuca in the Summer for around £12 million could prove to be a steal, however should he continue to bang in goals like this on a weekly bases it won't be long before clubs come sniffing around for his signature!
Liverpool fell to a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Sam Allardyce's West Ham team on Saturday after a ruthless start from the home side. The Reds barely had chance to compose themselves before the Hammers found the back of the net and things quickly went from bad to worse for Brendan Rodgers' side.
Hull City manager Steve Bruce has a perfect opportunity today to put himself more into the "shop window" for his chances of becoming the next manager at Newcastle United. Of course, this is all conjecture, but if Hull City beats West Ham United today and then defeats Newcastle this weekend, Bruce could end up being the favorite to replace Alan Pardew if the manager is sacked.
The daredevil pitch-invader who sprinted onto the pitch during West Ham's recent Premier League tie against Tottenham has been fined for his troubles.
The fan in question, 22-year-old Jordan Dunn, appeared atThames Magistrates' Court in East London on Monday in order to answer for his heinous crimes, with his decision to invade the pitch described as a "drunken moment of madness".
West Ham always plays Spurs tight and this match was no different. While many Hammer fans decried the weak attacking lineup for West Ham, Spurs gave them hope with an early harsh red in the box as Naughton was called for a handball in what should have been a no call as the shot was going over and it was a reactionary block.

Regular frequenters of this corner of the interweb will be well aware that here dwells no particular fan of Kyle Naughton, primarily for the crime of simply not being Top Four/Five/Six standard (although in addition to this he also spent most of last season convincing me that he was still a whippersnapper with plenty of time to improve, rather than being 25 years of age – 25!
Jordan Dunn, the West Ham who was finedon Monday for scampering onto the pitch and taking a free-kick during the Hammers' opening game of the season, has opened a crowdfundingaccount in the hope of raising enough money to pay off his court debts.
After having his set-piece technique complimented by the judge, 22-year-old Jordan was stung for £350 for his "drunken moment of madness" and, being an intrepid kind of guy, took to Go Fund Me to invite fellow West Ham fans to donate towards paying off his fine.
New Southampton boss Ronald Koeman is still looking for his first Premier League win having seen his side lose to Liverpool and drawing with West Brom last week, while Big Sam will be hoping to continue where thy left off last season with a 3-1 win against Crystal Palace.
Despite having lost almost half their team from last season Ronald Koeman's men were unlucky not to have gotten at least a draw at Anfield two weeks ago and if the can emulate that performance tomorrow the 7/4 on offer for a win is pretty good value to me?
Tony Pulis would have been proud of his former sides performance last week against Arsenal despite going down 2-1 with just a few minutes left on the clock while todays opponents West Ham were also denied a share of the spoils against Tottenham in the final moments last week!
Can't see past the draw @2/1 in this one with both sides equally matched by spirit and battling prowess!
