The teams are in and West Ham will be delighted to welcome back Jarrod Bowen and Alphonse Areola to their side, with Michail Antonio, Mohamed Kudus and Lucas Paqueta all starting. Kurt Zouma captains the side with Danny Ings and James Ward-Prowse on the bench. 

The big news is with Liverpool, for whom Mo Salah and Darwin Nunez are dropped to the bench, along with Curtis Jones and Ibrahima Konate after a poor midweek showing.

West Ham must win to remain in the hunt for European football next season. With just one victory in their last seven league games, the Hammers' form has stalled at just the wrong time to the point it seems highly unlikely boss David Moyes will continue in the dugout next season. Four-nil down to Crystal Palace after just 31 minutes last Sunday, the Irons went on to lose 5-2 in a demoralizing defeat they must put behind them swiftly. Jarrod Bowen has 19 goals in all competitions this season and will again be the east Londoners' principal attacking threat.

Liverpool's crushing 2-0 Merseyside derby defeat on Wednesday evening to Everton was symptomatic of the Reds' recent malaise. Jurgen Klopp's side have taken four points from their last 12 available, a run which has coincided with exiting the Europa League to Atalanta. Three points behind leaders Arsenal, and just one ahead of Manchester City having played two games more, Klopp and co. know that they must win to stand any chance of remaining in the title race. Diogo Jota will again miss out for a squad looking increasingly exhausted.
