Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool travel to West Ham on Sunday afternoon for what promises to be an intriguing Premier League game.
The visitors enter the game on the back of a fantastic performance against Tottenham on Thursday night, coming away with a solid 3-1 victory over Jose Mourinho’s side. Despite another injury from Joel Matip on top of Klopp’s defensive woes, the German will have been delighted to see his entire squad put on brilliant displays and put his recent sticky patch behind them.
Hoping to build on that result, here is the roster set to begin against West Ham.
Alisson (GK) – The Brazilian hasn’t been easy lately, but showed his class last time at Spurs.
Trent Alexander-Arnold (RB) – The full-back has had a scorching weather this season but, to everyone’s delight, he returned to his best on Thursday with a goal and a great assist. Guaranteed to start on Sunday.
Nat Phillips (CB) – Entered the second half against Tottenham as Matip was forced to leave and, with the Cameroonian and Fabinho has ruled out, Klopp will likely go with the young center-back for the West Ham game.
Jordan Henderson (CB) – Very well filled in the heart of the defense on Thursday and his experience could be vital alongside Phillips.
Andy Robertson (LB) – The Scotsman has been largely overshadowed by his colleague’s performance against Spurs, but still remains crucial for Klopp.
Curtis Jones (CM) – The academy graduate could start in midfield three for Sunday’s game, having played around 15 minutes against Tottenham.
Thiago (CM) – The Spaniard played well on Thursday, showing class and poise whenever he had the ball. Looking more and more comfortable in a Liverpool shirt.
Georginio Wijnaldum (CM) – Contributed massively to Liverpool’s dominance over midfield in Thursday night’s game, and will look to do the same against the Hammers.
Mohamed Salah (RW) – He believed he had scored his first Premier League goal since December 19 against Tottenham, but he was turned down. The Egyptian looks sharp and it’s only a matter of time before he gets back on the scoresheet.
Roberto Firmino (ST) – The Brazilian was fantastic last time around, scoring a goal and activating his team’s attack. Guaranteed to start on Sunday.
Sadio Mane (LW) – was another key figure in Spurs’ victory, getting a goal and an assist.
