This Monday night sees Liverpool take on West Ham United at Anfield, just a few weeks after cruising past them at the London Stadium. With the hosts heavy favourites we can expect some rotation in the middle, here is our predicted Liverpool lineup to face West Ham United:
Goalkeeper: Alisson Becker
The Brazilian can feel hard done by having helplessly conceded against Atletico Madrid, he should be relatively unchallenged against Atletico.
Right back: Trent Alexander-Arnold
Trent didn’t have his best game against Atletico but West Ham at home is a much easier prospect.
Centre back: Joe Gomez
The Englishman didn’t put a foot wrong in Madrid, hopefully he showcases his passing range again.
Centre back: Virgil van Dijk
Big Virg will likely step into midfield in possession with The Reds set to dominate the ball.
Left back: Andy Robertson
Robbo will be up and down the left flank with his typical determined work rate.
Defensive midfield: Fabinho
The best defensive midfielder in the world will conduct the orchestra from deep.
Centre midfield: Naby Keita
The Guinean will be vital to breaking through the deep lying Hammers defence.
Centre midfield: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain
The Ox alongside Keita is an attacking lineup but with The Reds expecting to dominate the ball it may be necessary.
Right wing: Mo Salah
Mo will want to hit back after disappointing in midweek.
Left wing: Sadio Mane
Sadio will be chomping at the bit having been brought off at half time against Atletico.
Striker: Bobby Firmino
We need to see more than we did from Bobby at the Wanda. He will look to put on a show between the lines.
