West Ham United host Liverpool in an EPL encounter on Sunday, May 14 at the London stadium. The Hammers go into the match high on confidence after their victory against title contenders, Tottenham, last weekend. However, the Reds are seeking to secure a spot in the top four.
Coming off from a loss in their previous league fixture, Tottenham will be hoping to salvage three points against Manchester United on Sunday. However, United are also seeking to secure maximum points after they also suffered a defeat in their last match.
La Liga title contenders, Real Madrid, will host Sevilla on Sunday in a must-win league encounter. Los Blancos are on joint points with Barcelona at the top of the log standings and will be hoping to continue with their winning form against a tough Sevilla-side.
West Ham v Liverpool (Premier League)
League rankings: West Ham 12th & Liverpool 3rd
Useful facts: West Ham’s shock win over Tottenham last weekend will strike fear into Jurgen Klopp’s men, especially considering that the Hammers are a real bogey team for them, with the Reds winning just one of their last six against the East Londoners. But, three wins from their last six makes the Champions League hopefuls’ form better off than West Ham, who have won just twice in that timeframe and have won just seven of their eighteen games in their new stadium this season.

Tottenham v Man Utd (Premier League)
League rankings: Tottenham 2nd & Man Utd 5th
Useful facts: With the Red Devils winning three of their last four against Spurs, this game appears to be in their favour. But 13 consecutive home wins for the London-based side will make for an interesting encounter. Both sides suffered defeat last weekend, breaking lengthy winning and undefeated streaks for Spurs and United respectively and both will be looking to return to winning ways at this crucial point of the season.
Matthew Booth: Draw
Real Madrid v Sevilla (La Liga)
League rankings: Real Madrid 2nd & Sevilla 4th
Useful facts: A must win encounter for Zinedine Zidane, with defeat effectively taking the title race out of his hands. Sevilla are by no means an easy team for them to take on with the stakes so high, especially considering that the Andalusians were the team to break Madrid’s long winning streak in the league in January with a pulsating 2-1 home win. But Madrid won six consecutive home games against them and will fancy their chances of continuing their three-game winning streak in all competitions.
