The Hammers footballer says his team will have to play a perfect game if they want to do some damage against the Reds.

Liverpool is currently sitting in the first position of the English Premier League table with 61 points.

Meanwhile, West Ham United is very far in 12th position with just 31 points.

But these two teams will meet tomorrow in the afternoon in Matchday 25 of the 2018-2019 season.

And for Hammers footballer Pablo Zabaleta, his team can do Liverpool some damage, but they have to be focused and play perfectly.

“Of course it is is going to be difficult because it is a team that’s top of the league. We need to try 100 percent in every single game,” he told the club’s official website.

“Against the top teams, we’ve been playing really well, we have maybe seven points from four or five games.”

“But we’ve failed three or four times to get that seventh position,” he added.

“That’s something we’ve been talking about, how good it’d be to finish seventh, and to try and play in the Europa League next season.”

“If you want to have a good season, you just need that consistency and be able to play well enough week in week out,” Zabaleta continued.

“Every player needs to be on it, they have to feel proud to play for West Ham. And to make this club better.”

The Argentinean veteran footballer started his professional career in San Lorenzo de Almagro in his native country in 2002.

In 2005 he moved to Espanyol, in the Spanish La Liga tournament.

But he played so well that he was seen by Manchester United, where he spent nine years from 2008 and 2017.

And two years ago, he moved to West Ham United, where he has registered over 55 appearances for the EPL team.
