Liverpool face West Ham at the London Stadium on Sunday afternoon, hoping to build on their impressive midweek victory against Tottenham.
Having failed to score in their previous four Premier League fixtures, Jurgen Klopp’s side travelled to the North London with a depleted and out-of-form squad, but came away with all three points thanks to goals from Roberto Firmino, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Sadio Mane.
The German manager will be hoping for a repeat performance and result on Sunday when they face an in-form West Ham side, who have won all of their games in 2021 so far.
Here’s how Football FanCast expects Klopp to line his side up against West Ham, with two changes from the side that started against Spurs…
Alisson keeps his place in between the sticks for the game at the London Stadium, having only been beaten by a superb striker from Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in midweek.
There’s one change in defence, as Nathaniel Phillips comes in for the injured Joel Matip, having replaced the Cameroon international after he was injured against Jose Mourinho’s side in midweek, and he partners Jordan Henderson at centre-back, with Fabinho also ruled out.
Trent Alexander-Arnold looked back to his best on Thursday, so keeps his place at full-back, with Andrew Robertson on the other side.
There’s one change in midfield, as the man Klopp once dubbed “exceptional“, Curtis Jones, comes in for James Milner, despite his impressive display in midweek, in the hope that he can provide some more creativity in this Liverpool midfield.
The front three unsurprisingly stays the same, but they will have to be at their best to unlock a West Ham defence that has impressed in recent weeks.
