Steven Gerrard and Mamadou Sakho are likely to miss out as Brendan Rodgers makes two changes…
Here’s the side we expect Liverpool to start with against West Ham United at Anfield on Saturday…
GK) Simon Mignolet
The Liverpool goalkeeper was excellent against Chelsea in mid-week, making several excellent saves to deny Diego Costa. He’s only conceded six goals in nine games since returning to the side and is growing in confidence.
RCB) Emre Can
The midfielder turned defender has continued to improve since his inclusion in the back three. While he’ll be pleased to see the back of Diego Costa, he could have his hands full with Andy Carroll.
LCB) Glen Johnson
Mamadou Sakho’s injury was thankfully not as bad as first feared and he’ll be back in training later today. The Frenchman is unlikely to be fit enough to start but he could still make the bench, with Johnson starting instead.
CB) Martin Skrtel
Liverpool’s most consistent defender throughout Brendan Rodgers time in charge, he was excellent again against Chelsea. He’ll have plenty to think about though as the Hammers load balls into the box.
