Liverpool vs Fulham - Match Preview
⚽ 3 May 2023 - 19:00 GMT +0
Just a few weeks ago, the prospect of Liverpool not featuring in European competition next season was a genuine reality, but a remarkable turnaround has seen them win four Premier League (PL) matches on the bounce to quash those fears. The latest of which was their dramatic 4-3 win over Tottenham Hotspur, where, despite going 3-0 up after just 15 minutes, the Reds required substitute Diogo Jota to net a 94th-minute winner to secure all three points.
The match seemed to take a psychological toll on manager Jürgen Klopp, who should be revelling in the fact that Jota’s winner was the sixth time one of his substitutes has scored a 90+ minute winner in the PL, the joint-most of any manager. Instead, Klopp got booked after celebrating the goal in the face of the fourth official before seemingly pulling his hamstring, too! He also made accusatory remarks about referee Paul Tierney after the game, landing himself in hot water with the FA.
Visitors Fulham will aim to capitalise on their hosts’ potential emotional fatigue, as they aim to snap a two-game losing run and extend their recent unbeaten run against Liverpool to four matches (W1, D2). Marco Silva’s men showed their fighting spirit despite going down 2-1 to title-chasing Manchester City last time out, although that was the seventh time in eight matches they’ve lost to a team starting the day above them in the standings (W1).
That will be something they look to overcome when travelling to Anfield, with the Cottagers currently tenth in the PL table. The odds will be stacked against them, however, having lost four of their last five away assignments (W1).
📋 Players to watch: Trent Alexander-Arnold has assisted a goal in each of Liverpool’s last five matches (A6), and could become just the third player to ever do so in six successive PL matches. He’ll also find himself defending against former Red Harry Wilson, who has scored nine of his last 12 goals for Fulham away from home - including one on Merseyside against neighbours Everton three weeks ago.
⚡ Hot stat: Liverpool have scored a PL-high 220 goals in Wednesday fixtures while winning their last eight matches on this day.
Manchester City vs West Ham - Match Preview
⚽ 3 May 2023 - 19:00 GMT +0
Manchester City beat Fulham 2-1 on Sunday as Erling Haaland notched his 50th competitive strike of the season – the first man to do so in England since 1931. Back then, Man City was beginning an eight-match winless H2H streak against West Ham United, but these days things are very different as they’ve only lost one of the last 16 meetings (W13, D3).
Last week’s potentially Premier League (PL) title-deciding 4-1 win here over Arsenal was the Cityzens’ seventh successive home league victory, the last three of them all seeing them net at least three times. But West Ham has proved worthy opponents in recent times, as although Man City have won their last six meetings at home, none of the last five saw them score more than twice.
Unhappy West Ham manager David Moyes may face the wrath of the FA for suggesting his side has been “disrespected” by officials recently, so ahead of a gruelling set of fixtures including both Manchester clubs and the UEFA Europa Conference League semi-final against AZ Alkmaar, the last thing he needed was Saturday’s 4-3 defeat by Crystal Palace – their first ever PL away defeat after scoring three times!
They’re still looking nervously over their shoulder towards the relegation zone despite winning two of their three league away fixtures last month (L1), but the Hammers have travelled poorly this term (W3, D3, L10). This is therefore another daunting task for them, highlighted by the fact that their leading scorer in away H2Hs remains Sir Geoff Hurst with three goals!
📋 Key battle: Even Hurst couldn’t match Haaland’s feat of 50 goals in a season (his best was 40 in 1965/66) with three of the Norwegian’s last four PL strikes coming inside the first 30 minutes. Trying to stop him will be Łukasz Fabiański (WHU), who has kept clean sheets in two of his last three appearances on the road.
⚡ Hot stat: West Ham has scored five goals in their last six PL games from corners.
