Liverpool’s current run of form has established themselves as a prime ‘top four’ contender and a 5-0 thumping win on the road against F.C. Porto has made the Reds upbeat ahead of their weekend’s Premier League tie against West Ham United at Anfield.
The Hammers have revived to some extent after appointing David Moyes as Slaven Bilic’s successor and their 4-1 home defeat against Liverpool will make them determined to grab a result away from home in a difficult Saturday afternoon encounter.
Liverpool vs West Ham United Injuries And Suspensions:
Liverpool do not have any significant injury absentees as Nathaniel Clyne still remains the only unavailable name who, despite being back to the team training, is unlikely to be rushed this weekend.
West Ham, on the other hand, have double injury boosts as both Winston Reid and Manuel Lanzini are expected to be fit for the Anfield trip. But the Hammers will continue to miss out Arthur Masuaku due to suspension whereas ex-Reds Andy Carroll’s injury nightmare continues following a foot injury. Both Edimilson Fernandes and Pedro Obiang are ruled out for the rest of the season with their respective ankle and knee injuries.
Liverpool vs West Ham United Probable Lineups:
Subs: Simon Mignolet, Dejan Lovren, Alberto Moreno, James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Danny Ings, Adam Lallana.
West Ham United:
Subs: Joe Hart, James Collins, Sam Byram, Josh Cullen, Patrice Evra, Declan Rice, Manuel Lanzini.
Liverpool vs West Ham United Last Meeting:
Their previous Premier League meeting at Anfield ended all square. Adam Lallana earned the Reds an early lead but two first-half goals from Dimitri Payet and Michail Antonio put the visitors ahead. Divock Origi pulled the equalizer minutes into the second half but the hosts failed to grab a winner and had to settle with a point.
Liverpool vs West Ham United Key Players:
Liverpool’s front trio of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, and Roberto Firmino will trouble the Hammers defence, whereas in-form Marko Arnautovic, Michail Antonio, and Javier Hernandez will pose an attacking threat on Liverpool backline.
