Just one game tonight in the Premier League and Liverpool were excused boots against Inter and have taken the opportunity to nip in their game in hand on Everton to play mid-table West Ham.

Wednesday, 05 March 2008; Barclays Premier League

Liverpool (5) vs West Ham United (10), KO 20:00

The battle for fourth place in the Premier League is now between Everton and Liverpool, with Aston Villa close enough to be considered strongly. Liverpool, as David Moyes pointed out at the weekend, are deserved favourites of the three due to their season on season consistency. And it is in games like this that Liverpool will look to legitimise their claims. Home games against mid-table sides are the circle-in-red fixtures at this time of the season and if West Ham defend like they did at home to Chelsea at the weekend then the result will not be in question - merely the size of the home win. Alan Curbishley will expect a reaction from his players - Rafa Benitez will expect a win from his.
