LIVE: Liverpool vs West Ham United | Salah Starts for the REDS!

The Reds and The Hammers will close a new matchday of the Premier League campaign in a match where Liverpool are massive favourites. West Ham enter this game on a negative run, so it’s unlikely to see them getting a positive result here. Kick-off for this match is slated at 20:00 GMT.

Liverpool

Liverpool have been the hottest team in Europe by a wide margin this season, and they enter this contest riding a 100% record at home and seven straight matches without conceding goals at Anfield Road. The Reds have won their 13 Premier League games at home during the current term, notching 35 goals and conceding just nine. However, The Reds are in dire need of a bounce-back performance following their 1-0 loss at Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday.

Jurgen Klopp’s men saw a four-game winning streak coming to an end with that defeat but if there’s one competition where they can turn things around, that’s the English Premier League. Liverpool currently sit at the top of the standings with 76 points out of 26 matches – they have won 25 while drawing just once. Can they extend that run Monday against The Hammers? A win here would put them closer to the title.

Liverpool have four absentees ahead of this contest.

Nathaniel Clyne (knee), Jordan Henderson (thigh), Yasser Larouci (thigh) and Xherdan Shaqiri (calf) have all been ruled out for this contest.

West Ham United

West Ham enter this game on a seven-game winless streak in all competitions. David Moyes’ men are coming off a 2-0 away loss to Manchester City the last time out, and they currently sit in 18th place of the standings with 24 points out of 26 matches. If the season ended today, Moyes’ team would be playing in the English Championship next season.

By all accounts, that would be quite a failure considering the strength of their squad and the presence of names such as Felipe Anderson, Declan Rice, and others. West Ham have gone winless in their last five Premier League matches as well, losing three of their last four contests and taking just two points of their last 15 available. West Ham have also conceded 45 goals – only three teams have allowed more goals against them.

The Hammers won’t have three players available for this match.

Ryan Fredericks is out with a shoulder injury. Meanwhile, Andriy Yarmolenko (thigh) and Jack Wilshere (groin) are also slated to miss this game.
