Time: 22:00 Cairo Local Time | 15:00 ET Canada-USA
Venue: London Stadium
Referee: Kevin Friend (England)
Jurgen Klopp’s men are seeking to reinforce their place at the top of the Premier League with three more points.
Liverpool’s next stop in their quest for the Premier League title is West Ham’s London Stadium, which will play host to Jurgen Klopp’s Reds on Monday.
After Pep Guardiola’s men beat Arsenal 3-1 on Sunday, the Reds can re-establish a five-point advantage at the summit of the standings, having missed the opportunity to open clear water in midweek when they were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Leicester.
West Ham, meanwhile, have lost their last three fixtures in all competitions but did beat Arsenal 1-0 in their previous home outing and still have an outside chance of European football if they can string together a strong run.
Liverpool vice-captain James Milner returns from a one-match ban and will go straight into the squad.
Trent Alexander-Arnold, however, is still missing, with Jurgen Klopp hopeful he will return to full training in the next week. Joe Gomez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are absent, too.
Jordan Henderson is set to make his 300th Premier League appearance.
Liverpool starting XI: Alisson; Milner, Lovren, Van Dijk, Robertson; Wijnaldum, Fabinho; Shaqiri, Firmino, Mane; Salah
Marko Arnautovic faces a race against time to shake off a foot injury if he is to feature. The odds are stacked against the Hammers’ top scorer, however.
The Hammers also have doubts over goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski and Aaron Cresswell.
These add to a huge number of long-term problems, the most prominent of which are Fabian Balbuena, Jack Wilshere, and Andriy Yarmolenko.
Samir Nasri is also absent.
West Ham starting XI: Fabianski; Zabaleta, Diop, Ogbonna, Masuaku; Rice, Noble; Snodgrass, Anderson, Antonio; Arnautovic
