Brendan Rodgers has been forced to make one change to the side that easily brushed aside Norwich City on Wednesday night after Daniel Agger pulled out with illness.

Mamadou Sakho has been drafted in to replace the Danish defender, while Luis Saurez starts against a West Ham side that he never scored against in the Premier League.

The Hammers are in search of their first win at Anfield since 1963 and Sam Allardyce has made several changes to the side that lost to Crystal Palace on Tuesday night.

Guy Demel and George McCartney replace full-backs Razvan Rat and Joey O’Brien, Matt Jarvis comes in for the suspended Ravel Morrison and Modibo Maiga gets the nod up front in front of Carlton Cole.
