What is the team news?

Liverpool are without Fabinho because of a hamstring problem, so 19-year-old centre-back Rhys Williams could make his Premier League debut. The club will monitor the fitness of Thiago Alcantara and Naby Keita, who are nearing returns, while this game may come too soon for Joel Matip.

Michail Antonio is absent for West Ham with a hamstring injury. The striker could be replaced by Sebastien Haller at Anfield.

What's our prediction?

Liverpool are undefeated in 19 of their last 20 home matches against West Ham in all competitions and have battled to three wins in a row since losing Virgil van Dijk to a knee injury. They have, however, looked shaky at times and are down to the bare bones at the back with injury. West Ham have managed to navigate what looked like a tricky run of fixtures and are themselves unbeaten in their last four Premier League games. They have enough to cause Liverpool problems.

Predicted score: Liverpool 1 West Ham 1
