Prediction: What we should expect in Liverpool vs West Ham game

Premier League action resumes for Liverpool against West Ham United at Anfield on Saturday and the target is to secure a win to be able to make it four across all competitions.

Liverpool are still in a winning mood after their 2-0 victory over Midtjylland in the Champions League as they last game while West Ham United played a 1-1 draw against Man City in their last league game.

Discussing the Liverpool game without mentioning the injury crisis in the team will be incomplete as Jurgen Klopp lost Brazilian international Fabinho to injury in the Champions League. He has been a cover for injured Virgil Van Dijk who is out for the rest of the season.

The bid by the Reds to defend the league title now looks more difficult with the injuries despite enjoying a great good run so far. Their record at Anfield could also play a role in ensuring their victory against West Ham United.

Meanwhile, the London club have been unbeaten in their last four games in the Premier League and will be hoping to have the record stretched when they play at Anfield. The David Moyes team have proven, with the Tottenham game that they can always pull some surprises, especially against big sides.

However, with the return of Brazilian goalkeeper, Alisson Becker from injury, Liverpool youngster, Rhys Williams could be given the nod alongside Joe Gomez to mount the heart of the Liverpool defence.

Thiago Alcantara and Naby Keita are both doubts for the game but Jordan Henderson is confirmed to be available for the game while the presence of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, and Roberto Firmino will be felt in the game.

See possible starting XI
Alisson Becker, Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez, Rhys Williams, Robertson Jordan Henderson, James Milner, Gini Wijnaldum, Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane.
