The West Ham United vs Liverpool live stream is the last Premier League match before the final international break of 2021. With the two teams in good form, it promises to be an exciting match.
West Ham have continued to impress this season, picking up six wins from their opening 10 games. They go into the weekend in the fourth Champions League spot following last week’s 1-4 dismantling of Aston Villa. Liverpool, meanwhile, are the only unbeaten team in the Premier League. Despite this, the visitors start this round of fixtures in second place, behind Chelsea. They gave up a two-goal lead against Brighton and ended up with just a draw last Saturday.
The two teams go into the match after contrasting weeks of European football. Liverpool cruised to a 2-0 win over Atlético Madrid thanks to goals from Sadio Mané and Diego Jota. A red card for Felipe in just the 36th minute helped see them progress comfortably from the so-called group of death and into the next round of the Champions League.
West Ham recovered from 1-0 down against Genk to go 1-2 up, thanks to two goals from Said Benrama. However, a late Tomas Soucek own goal meant the game ended 2-2 and they will have to wait to progress into the next round of the Europa League. The extra 24 hours' rest for Jurgen Klopp’s side, not to mention the extra exertions needed by David Moyes’ boys, might be an important factor later on in the West Ham vs Liverpool live stream.
One exciting battle to watch out for in the game is Michail Antonio vs Virgil Van Dijk. Earlier this week the West Ham forward commented that while the Liverpool defender “is strong. No one should be stronger than me.” He added: “I am talking about who is going to be stronger than me? No one is stronger than me.”
As well as Antonio, Van Dijk and his fellow defenders will be under pressure from West Ham set pieces. Jarrod Bowen and Aaron Cresswell both offer teasing, dangerous deliveries, which have been capitalised on in recent weeks.
For Liverpool, Mo Salah seems almost unstoppable at the moment, and is ably assisted by Mané, Jota, and Roberto Firmino; Jota gets the nod here, with Firmino on the bench. Alex Oxlaide Chamberlain also looks to be recapturing some form after an impressive performance during the week and he again starts here.
Here's how they line up:
West Ham United: Fabianski, Johnson, Zouma, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Soucek, Rice, Bowen, Fornals, Benrahma, Antonio
Liverpool: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Henderson, Fabinho, Salah, Jota, Mane.
