CONFIRMED: West Ham v Liverpool line-ups – Sterling starts, Lallana on bench!

Here is how West Ham United and Liverpool will line up for their Premier League clash, featuring Raheem Sterling, Mario Balotelli and Stewart Downing, while Reds midfielder Adam Lallana is left on the substitutes' bench.

Liverpool will be looking to return to winning ways in the Premier League when they take on West Ham United at the Boleyn Ground this evening.

The Reds have not made the best of starts to the 2014-15 season and suffered a shock defeat to Aston Villa at Anfield last weekend.

Although Brendan Rodgers’s side got the better of Bulgarian champions Ludogorets Razgrad 2-1 at home in the Champions League on Tuesday, their performance left much to be desired.

Winning against West Ham in London this evening will not be easy, especially as Sam Allardyce’s side will head into the match on the back of an encouraging 2-2 draw with Hull City at the KC Stadium on Monday.

However, Liverpool will be confident of winning today given the quality of players they have. A victory today will go a long way in their quest to win the Premier League title this season.

It promises to be an exciting match at the Boleyn Ground, and here is how West Ham and Liverpool will line up.
