Is West Ham vs Liverpool on TV? Kick-off time, channel and how to watch the Reds’ Premier League match tonight
Following an unexpected upswing in form, West Ham will be keen to maintain momentum as they welcome Liverpool.
Two convincing victories against Fulham and Bournemouth, alongside a draw with Arsenal, have elevated the home side out of serious trouble.
David Moyes’s team are now six points ahead of Everton in 18th place and have a game in hand, suggesting that one more win might be sufficient to guarantee Premier League survival.
They face a Liverpool side that was given a scare by Nottingham Forest at the weekend and will be aiming to end the season on a high note and secure a European spot.
Here’s everything you need to know.
When is West Ham vs Liverpool taking place?
West Ham vs Liverpool is scheduled to kick off at 7.45pm BST on Wednesday 26 April at the London Stadium.
How can I watch?
Viewers in the UK can watch the match live on BT Sport 2, with coverage beginning at 1915 BST. Subscribers can stream the game via the BT Sport app or online player. Those without a BT Sport subscription will likely resort to official coverage with international IPTV providers such as Peacock, NBC Sports, DAZN, Bein Sports and so on, by using a VPN like Liberty Shield; or watch the highlights later on BBC One’s Match of the Day.
West Ham are still without Gianluca Scamacca, but Angelo Ogbonna returned to the bench against Bournemouth after recovering from injury. David Moyes may well select the same starting line-up following the significant away victory.
Roberto Firmino is expected to be absent once again for Liverpool, who count Stefan Bajcetic and Naby Keita among their long-term absentees.
