Liverpool know that only a victory will do today against West Ham United. The Reds go up against Slaven Bilic’s side at the London Stadium with Arsenal breathing down their neck in fifth place. Just a point behind Jurgen Klopp’s side, the Gunners have two home games remaining and defeat would be a huge blow to Liverpool’s UEFA Champions League ambitions.
Having drawn against Southampton at Anfield last weekend, the pressure is on.
The bad news is West Ham United are in party spoiling mode having destroyed Spurs’ title ambitions last week, knowing a win against Liverpool could play a huge role in them finishing in the top half of the table.
It’s been a difficult season for Bilic, but if they can finish strongly then it gives them a bit of momentum heading into a huge transfer window for them
Liverpool fans want to see an attacking performance and with Roberto Firmino set to miss the match through match they are desperate for Daniel Sturridge to make his first start for the club since January.
Sturridge has found it difficult to force his way into Klopp’s plans but supporters reckon is the day to day for him to shine.
They took to Twitter to make a please for the striker to get his start this afternoon…

Put Emre Can in the holding role. Gini and Lallana with the licence to roam. Coutinho, Origi, Sturridge ahead of them. Diamond.
