In a Premier League season in which the evergreens have restored normalcy after Leicester Citys stunning run, Liverpool stands out as the team whose losses have hurt their prospective title chances the most. Nike Roshe One Print US .The Reds hope to avoid another such letdown Sunday at Anfield, where they will try to inflict more misery on a West Ham United side that has been out of sorts the entire campaign.Through 14 matches, the top six teams in the table have 11 defeats. Eight of them have come in contests between the six sides, and Liverpool (9-3-2) are the only squad among the six yet to lose a match to the other five.The Reds have wins over table-topping Chelsea and Arsenal to their credit, victories that easily burnish any title credentials they have. But they also have two of the three losses to teams outside the top six, the second a shocking 4-3 capitulation at Bournemouth last weekend.The other came to Burnley, and those teams are ranked 10th and 15th in the table, respectively.Liverpool twice threw away two-goal leads against Bournemouth, and goals in the final quarter-hour as Ryan Fraser, Steve Cooke and Nathan Ake provided a historic victory for the Cherries at Vitality Stadium. It also left the Reds third in the table, three points adrift of Chelsea heading into this weekend.The loss prompted some introspection by Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, who dismissed talk the team would enter this match with a hangover from the loss.No concern, he said. When you win a game like this, like Norwich or Dortmund, its not sure that you are prepared for the next situation. I think I said it after the game that we played good enough to win the game until it slipped through our fingers. That was wrong judgment, we did the wrong things, we were getting passive -- whats not really usual for us.If theres any influence on the next game? No idea. What we will be more than maybe we were before Bournemouth, we will be angry again -- angry about ourselves, thats important. But West Ham will be a really tough challenge. An interesting game.Liverpool showed little ill effects offensively without injured playmaker Philippe Coutinho -- Emre Can had a goal and an assist -- and oft-injured striker Daniel Sturridge will miss at least the next two matches. While Klopp is hopeful the England international can return in time for the Merseyside derby versus Everton on Dec. 19, he also wants Sturridge 100 percent.He will be back as quickly as possible, but I have no idea at the moment, he said. If he is not training with the team at the moment then we dont have to think about him for West Ham, or think about him for Middlesbrough.I learned pretty early I (shouldnt) make pressure by making timelines so why should I do it?As Liverpool deal with their lack of depth entering the busy December schedule, West Ham United continue to battle to simply stay above the drop. The Irons (3-3-8) are one point above the relegation spots and in 17th place entering this weekend while going winless in their last six contests (0-2-4) across all competitions.West Ham are dealing with hangover issues of their own.After being bounced from the EFL Cup by Manchester United in midweek, the Hammers were run out of Olympic Park by Arsenal 5-1 last Saturday in a London derby.The Hammers conceded four times in the final 18 minutes, unable to contain the irrepressible Alexis Sanchez as the Chilean torched Darren Randolph for three of those four goals and helped Arsenal inflict West Hams heaviest loss of the season to date.The good news for manager Slaven Bilic is he will have starters Michail Antonio and Aaron Cresswell back for this match. They missed the Arsenal contest after picking up injuries in the Cup loss to United, and Bilic is hopeful they will bring some stability to a side that has shipped 17 goals in the last seven matches.We were one-down after 70 minutes so to lose 5-1 left us disappointed, frustrated and angry, but you have to get over it, which we have done and we have a big game Sunday, he said. I have told the player we have got to be positive and Ive had a great reaction from them this week in training.Bilic is also optimistic about his teams chances following Bournemouths comeback over Liverpool, claiming his side has the potential to find holes to counter against a team that flows forward, sometimes at the expense of their still-shaky defence.Of course that result gives us heart because they are conceding goals, he explained. OK, they are an attack-minded side, but first of all you have to be solid and stop them from creating and scoring and even coming into those positions where they are very dangerous.But of course because they attack with such numbers, they leave the back open and there is a lot of space that, although they have good offensive and defensive transitions, you can use.Veteran striker Andy Carroll scored in his first start of the season after an injury layoff, and his aerial threat could pose problems for a Liverpool team that has struggled to contain opponents on set pieces.The Hammers can also point to last seasons success against Liverpool in which they did the double in the regular season by a combined 5-0 scoreline and then eliminated the Reds in a fourth-round replay of the FA Cup with a 2-1 victory after extra time on a goal by Angelo Ogbonna right before the match was slated to go to penalties.West Hams 3-0 victory at Anfield last season was their first in the Premier League era, ending a 19-match winless drought (0-5-14) there. Roshe Two Womens . This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. Nike Roshe Black And White . Newcastle dominated in the early stages but City weathered the storm and then raised its game in extra time. Negredo broke the deadlock from close range after a simple move in the 99th minute before Dzeko took the ball round goalkeeper Tim Krul to seal the victory in the 105th. .
