Liverpool will face off against West Ham United as they travel to the London Stadium on Wednesday night for this Premier League clash. The Reds recorded a narrow 3-2 victory against Nottingham Forest in their last outing, so they would be looking to produce a better performance in this midweek encounter.
Jurgen Klopp will probably opt for the 4-3-3 formation and is expected to make a few changes to the starting XI. Darwin Nunez will replace Diogo Jota in the left wing while Cody Gakpo continues to lead the line up front.
4-3-3 Liverpool Predicted XI Vs West Ham United
Alisson Becker will continue to function in goal for the Merseyside giants after conceding two goals in his last league appearance. Ibrahima Konate will operate alongside Virgil Van Dijk at the heart of Liverpool’s backline as they focus on stopping the West Ham attackers from scoring this weekend.
Trent Alexander-Arnold will continue as the right-back, while Andrew Robertson operates as the left-back. Both of them will have to defend their lines well and also create some decent goal-scoring chances from the wide areas.
Kostas Tsimikas and Joel Matip will be available for selection on the bench as they offer cover for the defensive positions.
Jordan Henderson, Fabinho and Curtis Jones will make up Liverpool’s midfield as they look to establish their superiority over the opposition at the centre of the park.
Both Henderson and Jones have to find a way to engineer a few promising chances for the Reds in the final third.
Thiago Alcantara will be named on the bench and might come on to influence the game in the second half if Klopp decides to call upon his services.
Darwin Nunez will start as the left-sided wide player, while Mohamed Salah hopes to be productive on the right flank.
As mentioned earlier, Cody Gakpo will lead the charge for the Merseyside club in the final third. The Dutch forward has to find a way to cause a few headaches for the East London defenders.
Diogo Jota will be available for selection on the bench as he waits for his chance to shine in the game’s latter stages if required.
