The rumors of Liverpool’s demise after a lacklustre (by their own high standards) campaign last season have been proven spectacularly wrong. The Merseyside club are very much back to their best.
In February, Liverpool didn't drop a single point in the Premier League, achieved an important 0-2 victory away to Inter Milan in the Champions League Round of 16 and won the Carabao Cup at Wembley against Chelsea in dramatic penalty shootout. That’s an awful lot of success in just 28 days.
This year’s Premier League title race looked all but over in the run up to Christmas, but Liverpool have taken full advantage of a couple of poor results from Manchester City. A win against West Ham at Anfield would bring them to within three points of the current title holders, and would seriously lump the pressure on City ahead of the Manchester derby on Sunday.
Liverpool’s recent dominance has come thanks to many of the usual suspects — Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané have been virtually unplayable in recent matches — but new January signing Luis Diaz has also impressed. Right now, Liverpool are probably one of the strongest sides in world football, and any side coming up against them won’t be favourites for a result, especially if the match is at Anfield.
This week the unlucky opposition to face Liverpool is West Ham United. The London-based side are still competing for a Champions League spot, but recent draws against mid-table Leicester and a relegation-battling Newcastle United have dented those European dreams. The Hammers did get back to winning ways with victory over Wolves last weekend, but coming to Anfield and taking even a point will be an extremely tall order.
Here's how they line up:
Liverpool: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson, Fabinho, Henderson, Keita, Salah, Diaz, Mane
West Ham: Fabianski, Johnson, Dawson, Zouma, Cresswell, Soucek, Vlasic, Fornals, Lanzini, Bowen, Antonio
