*Odds correct as of 14:50 on December 20
After a 0-0 draw against rivals Manchester United at the weekend that saw the Reds drop below Arsenal and into second in the Premier League table, their attention now turns to the EFL Cup. Despite having 34 shots, the second most in a Premier League game without scoring since 2017/18, Jürgen Klopp’s side could find no way past Manchester United at Anfield as the Red Devils became the first side to leave Anfield with a point across all competitions this season. They now welcome West Ham to their historic stadium looking to get back to winning ways and reach the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup for just the second time in the last seven seasons after 2021/22, where they took home the trophy for a record ninth time in their history.
West Ham, meanwhile, made it seven wins from their last nine games across all competitions with an impressive 3-0 victory over Wolves last weekend to put their recent 0-5 defeat to Fulham firmly behind them. The Hammers, who have also qualified for the last 16 of the Europa League, will be hoping to make it to the semi-finals of the League Cup for the first time since 2013/14 and go all the way to lifting the trophy for the very first time. If they are going to reach the final four however, David Moyes will have to do something that he has never done before in his managerial career and win away at Liverpool, having lost 13 and drawn seven of his 20 away matches across all competitions against The Reds.
