Liverpool will clash heads with West Ham United at the London Stadium on Sunday evening, hoping to pick up all three points away from home. The Reds will be coming into the match on the back of an encouraging 2-0 win over Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Champions League, whereas David Moyes’ men recorded a 2-2 draw with Genk.
Jurgen Klopp will probably opt for the 4-3-3 formation with a couple of tweaks from the last game. In midfield, Thiago Alcantara might get the nod over Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, whereas Andrew Robertson looks likely to make his way back into the starting eleven.
4-3-3 Liverpool Predicted Lineup Vs West Ham United
Alisson Becker will operate in between the sticks for the upcoming clash. The Brazilian shot-stopper will be hoping to put up a strong performance and secure a clean sheet on Sunday.
Joel Matip will continue to form the centre-half partnership with Virgil van Dijk at the heart of Liverpool’s backline.
Andrew Robertson is a guaranteed starter at the left wing-back position, whereas Trent Alexander-Arnold will fill in on the other flank as the right wing-back. The full-backs will be expected to stretch their side’s attack in the opposition half.
Fabinho might start in the holding midfield position and could be assigned with more of a defensive role to shield the away side’s back-four.
Jordan Henderson and Thiago Alcantara will slot into the central midfield roles. The duo would be determined to set up some clear cut goal scoring chances for the front men.
Harvey Elliott, Naby Keita and Curtis Jones remain sidelined with injuries.
Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah will take up the wide positions, playing on the left and right-wing respectively.
Roberto Firmino picked up an unfortunate injury after coming on as a second-half substitute against Atletico Madrid in midweek, and he is expected to be out for a considerable amount of time.
“Bobby is not good news with a serious hamstring injury, really unfortunate,” Klopp stated.
“Losing Bobby is a blow. We’ve known now for two days it’s a serious injury,” the manager revealed.
“We talk about weeks, still. I don’t know exactly, but more than four. Then we have to see, he’s a quick healer.”
As a result, Diogo Jota will lead the line for the visitors against West Ham United this weekend. The Portugal international will be hoping to get his name on the scoresheet when he faces off against the West Ham defence that has conceded just one goal in their last three league matches.
