Liverpool have never lost in six previous FA Cup meetings with the Hammers (W4 D2), most recently in the 2006 final, when the Reds won on penalties after a 3-3 draw. However, West Ham have won three of their last four meetings with Liverpool, including two league victories this season – a 3-0 win at Anfield back in August and a 2-0 victory at home in January.
The Reds’ last seven all Premier League FA Cup ties have ended in a 2-1 scoreline, with four wins and three defeats. The Hammers have won just one of their last eight FA Cup games away from home (D1 L6). In all competitions, West Ham have won just two of their last 10 away matches (W2 D4 L4).
The movement on both teams lines has been hugely influenced by their form against each other this season, with the Hammers completing a league double over Liverpool 5-0 on aggregate. This is shown by Liverpool drifting to 2.15 from opening 1.66, with West Ham backed into 3.63 having opened at 5.83.
