Liverpool Team News & Preview
Liverpool were beaten 4-3 during their last Premier League outing against Bournemouth. Jurgen Klopp‘s men were 3-1 up at one point, but the Cherries inflicted a crushing blow on the Reds with a remarkable comeback.
The Reds will be desperate to bounce back with a win over West Ham this weekend. Despite their impressive attack, Liverpool are simply not good enough at the back. Klopp will be hoping that the return of Matip will help his side on that front.
The home side have a terrible record against West Ham, and they have failed to win five of their last six matches against the Hammers. This is a great opportunity for them to exploit West Ham’s poor form and pick up a much-needed win.
Philippe Coutinho, Danny Ings, and Daniel Sturridge are sidelined with injuries. However, Mane and Matip have both trained this week and are expected to start.
Predicted Liverpool Starting Lineup (4-3-3): Karius; Clyne, Matip, Lovren, Milner; Can, Henderson, Lallana; Origi, Firmino, Mane
