West Ham for their part have won just once so far this season beating Crystal Palace but they have dropped points against Spurs, Southampton and more recently away to Hull when they drew 2-2. Sam Allardyce’s side are currently 13th in the table.

Team News:

West Ham will be without Kevin Nolan as he continues his recovery from a shoulder injury while former Red Andy Carroll is also missing for the Hammers. Those long term absentee aside Allardyce has no other worries ahead of the game.

The Hammers boss will hope that Enner Valencia and Diafra Sakho can build on their first strikes for the club against Hull on Monday. The close season signings impressed at the KC on Monday and will give West Ham an edge in attack.

Liverpool meanwhile have something of a lengthy injury list. Jon Flanagan is the latest name to appear on that list.

The young defender was thought to be on the brink of a return to first team action however he has now undergone surgery on his left knee and faces a couple of months on the sidelines.

Flanagan will be joined on the sidelines by injured quartet Daniel Sturridge, Joe Allen, Emre Can and Glen Johnson. Martin Skrtel should return to the side after overcoming injury while Lazar Markovic is available after missing the midweek Champions league tie with Ludogorets through suspension.


Liverpool won this fixture 2-1 last season thanks to two penalties and they will hope for a more comfortable ride this time round. The Reds have a good record against the Londoners winning 8 of the last 11 games with just one defeat in this fixture since 2008.
