Confirmed: Liverpool and West Ham line-ups

Here is how Liverpool and West Ham United will line up for this afternoon’s match:

Liverpool welcome West Ham United to Anfield this afternoon as the Reds seek to maintain their undefeated start to the new campaign and the Hammers look to get back to winning ways.

Liverpool have seven points from their first three matches, losing their 100 per cent record when they drew 0-0 with Arsenal last week.

In contrast West Ham have just three points after suffering back-to-back defeats after their brilliant opening weekend victory against Arsenal.

Liverpool have a superb home record against West Ham and it is almost a decade since a Hammers player even scored in a league game at Anfield.

That is something West Ham boss Slaven Bilic will want to change this afternoon but that will not be easy against a Reds side that are yet to concede in the league this season.

Despite West Ham’s poor record they showed at the Emirates Stadium what they can do when they are on form so Liverpool will not be taking three points for granted.
