Ex-Liverpool star Michael Owen believes Liverpool will have too much for West Ham in Saturday's evening kick-off. 

Owen played for Liverpool between 1996 and 2004, making 297 appearances and scoring 158 goals for the club. He also played for the likes of Real Madrid, Newcastle United, Manchester Untied and Stoke City during his career.

The now BT Sport pundit believes his old team are going beat the Hammers in what he thinks will be a 'terrific' game.

Liverpool won back-to-back games for the first team since August this week, when they beat Huddersfield 3-0 in the league last weekend, then followed that up with a midweek 3-0 win over Maribor in the Champions League. 

West Ham, on the other hand, dropped two points in the league against Crystal Palace last weekend after conceding an equaliser in the 97th minute in the 2-2 draw. But before that match they did win 3-2 against Tottenham in the Carabao Cup.

Writing on Betvictor.com about the game, the former England international said, "This promises to be a terrific game under the London Stadium lights and I think Liverpool can follow up their 4-0 win from the corresponding game last season although the scoreline on that occasion flattered the Reds."

Speaking about Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge, Owen added that it was a good sight to see the England star scoring goals again for the Reds. 

The former Balon d'Or winner said that it's "great to see Daniel Sturridge back among the goals against Huddersfield last weekend and the England international has a good record against West Ham scoring five times in seven PL games against the Hammers. I expect to see goals with my old club getting the lion's share."

As a tip for the match, the 37-year-old added "Liverpool to win and both teams to score."

Heading into the match, Liverpool find themselves sixth in the Premier League table, three points off the top four. Whereas West Ham are just one point above the relegation zone in 16th place.
