Liverpool play West Ham United at Anfield tonight in the Premier League. We’ve had a look at the likely starting lineup Jurgen Klopp will go with.
With Manchester City winning at Leicester on Saturday evening, Liverpool’s lead was cut back to 19 points. The Reds can restore their 22-point advantage with a win at home to David Moyes’ West Ham tonight.
Jordan Henderson, Xherdan Shaqiri and Nathaniel Clyne are all out due to injury while Jurgen Klopp has no suspended players to worry about for this game.
Alisson Becker will continue in goals for The Reds. In front of the Brazilian ‘keeper, Liverpool should have their regular back four of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez, Virgil van Dijk and Andy Robertson.
Fabinho is likely to start at the base of the midfield with Gini Wijnaldum just ahead of him. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Naby Keita and James Milner will be vying for that third midfield spot in place of the injured Henderson. I think Oxlade-Chamberlain will get the nod from the start.
The frontline should be a full-strength trio of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mané.
Predicted Liverpool lineup (4-3-3) Vs West Ham United: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Oxlade-Chamberlain; Salah, Firmino, Mané
