Liverpool will face off against West Ham United at the London Stadium this Wednesday night as they look to earn maximum points on the road. The Reds managed to secure an impressive 1-0 win over Manchester City last weekend which will give them a lot of confidence ahead of this midweek game.
Jurgen Klopp will set his side up in a 4-3-3 formation and is expected to make a few changes to his first XI for this game. Fabio Carvalho, Jordan Henderson and Ibrahima Konate could all get a chance to play from the start in this midweek fixture.
4-3-3 Liverpool Predicted Lineup To Face West Ham United
Alisson Becker will feature in between the sticks for the Reds after he kept a clean sheet versus Man City recently. Ibrahima Konate, if he can pass a late fitness test, could get a chance to play alongside Virgil Van Dijk at the heart of Liverpool’s backline as they look to stop the Hammers from creating too many chances on the counter.
Joe Gomez could be shifted to right-back for this game while Andrew Robertson hopes to catch the eye as the left-back. Klopp would ask both his full-backs to play safety first and then, pick and choose their moments to join in on the attack.
James Milner will offer cover for the defensive positions on the bench.
Thiago Alcantara and Jordan Henderson will anchor the midfield for Liverpool at the centre of the park. Both of them need to control the game well collectively and create some decent chances in the final third.
The talented trio of Fabio Carvalho, Roberto Firmino and Harvey Elliott will operate just ahead of them as part of Jurgen Klopp’s attack. Firmino and Elliott are both enjoying a good run of form of late and will hope to impress for the Reds in the final third.
Mohamed Salah will lead the charge for the Merseyside giants on the attacking end of the field. The Egypt international has scored four goals in his past two appearances and will be expected to be Liverpool’s most potent weapon up top.
Darwin Nunez will once again have to settle for a spot on the bench as he waits for his chance to shine in the second 45 minutes if needed.
However, Diogo Jota is unlikely to recover in time for this match after he picked up a thigh injury in the latter stages of the game versus Man City last weekend.
