Top Liverpool Pick

Luis Suarez

The divisive Uruguayan has yet to feature on Picklive in a Liverpool shirt. However during the World Cup he was consistently one of the best performers. Deadly in front of goal, willing to drop deep to receive the ball and armed with blistering pace; he is never far from the action. Furthermore he should have a field day against a leaky West Ham defence.

Top West Ham Pick

Scott Parker

The England midfielder has been by a huge margin the best West Ham performer all season, and this has been reflected in Picklive points. His great quality – like Suarez – that he never disappears from view. Regardless of the score or the pattern of the game, Parker will be at the hub of everything that the Hammers do. This makes him an essential pick.

One to Avoid

Carlton Cole

The polar opposite of Suarez. Cole has very little impact on the game outside of the opponent’s 18 yard box and even there it is very difficult to see him getting much out of Skrtel and Agger. He has the added detraction that his cumbersome style sees im committing far too many fouls. In the Hammers Carling Cup semi-final at St. Andrews he lost 21 points for the fouls that he committed.
