Predicted West Ham line-up to play Liverpool: Sakho to start

Match between Liverpool and West Ham United to be played on Saturday 31st January 2015 at 15:00. Venue: Anfield, Liverpool.

West Ham United travel to Liverpool this weekend for a huge Premier League encounter.

Just one point and one place separates them in the table and whoever wins will take another step towards a sought-after European qualifying place.

West Ham are seeking their third straight victory having overcome Hull City in the league and Bristol City in the FA Cup in recent days, and now may be a good time to face Brendan Rodgers’ side after the Reds played out an energy-sapping Capital One Cup semi-final second leg with Chelsea earlier this week.

James Collins has a back injury but has a strong chance of recovering in time for this match while Cheikhou Kouyate is suffering from fatigue.

Aside from that Hammers manager Sam Allardyce currently has a full roster of players to chose from.

Below is the side we predict will start for West Ham at the weekend:

Predicted West Ham United starting line-up: Adrian, Jenkinson, Reid, Tomkins, Cresswell, Noble, Song, Downing, Nolan, Sakho, Carroll
