Archant’s Dave Evans, Ned Keating and Jacob Ranson discuss the latest topics affecting our clubs

Under-fire West Ham boss Slaven Bilic takes his team to Anfield to face free-scoring Liverpool in the Premier League this weekend.

The Hammers was thrashed 5-1 by Arsenal at London Stadium last weekend and are hovering just above the relegation zone, with pressure mounting on their manager.

Archant’s West Ham correspondent Dave Evans saw them produce a stunning 3-0 win over the Reds on Merseyside last season, their first victory there since 1963, but is not too confident of a repeat.

But winnable relegation six-pointers against Burnley and Hull are looming on the horizon for the Hammers.

Meanwhile, Leyton Orient return to League Two action after a free weekend with a home match against Accrington Stanley at Brisbane Road.

And O’s fan Jacob Ranson discusses his hopes for Andy Edwards’ side in the absence of our holidaying correspdonent George Sessions.

Dagenham & Redbridge switch their focus from a National League promotion push to the FA Trophy as they look to avoid a giantkilling against Ryman League outfit Worthing.

It’s a particularly interesting tie for Brighton loanee Jordan Maguire-Drew, who spent time with the Rebels last season, and Ned Keating looks ahead to the action at Victoria Road, as well as other talking points from the non-league scene, in the latest our new regular podcasts, presented by Archant London’s executive digital editor Matt Withers.
