Confirmed Liverpool v West Ham line-ups: Moses starts, Oxford on the bench

Anfield Pitch

Here is how Liverpool and West Ham United will line up for this evening's FA Cup tie.

Liverpool will be looking for more cup success this evening as they face West Ham United in the FA Cup.

The Reds beat Stoke City on penalties in midweek to reach the Capital One Cup final, and are now seeking progress in the FA Cup too.

Tonight, manager Jurgen Klopp has named a youthful side, with the likes of Brad Smith, Kevin Stewart, Cameron Brannagan and Joao Teixeira all in the starting line-up.

Bigger names like Dejan Lovren, Joe Allen and Christian Benteke all get a chance to impress, whilst talented youngsters Connor Randall, Jerome Sinclair, Danny Ward, Pedro Chirivella and Sheyi Ojo are all on the bench.

Meanwhile, West Ham will be hoping to make it three wins over Liverpool this season by beating them again tonight.

The Hammers won 3-0 and 2-0 against Liverpool this season, with manager Slaven Bilic seemingly having the upper hand over the Reds so far.

Tonight, Adrian has been left out due to the birth of his child back in Spain, meaning Darren Randolph starts in goal, with youngster Sam Howes on the bench.

Winger Victor Moses is handed a chance to impress after a stop-start season so far, whilst much of the creative burden will fall on the shoulders of Dimitri Payet.

Teenager Reece Oxford is on the bench after the collapse of his loan move to Charlton Athletic, along with fellow youngster Josh Cullen.
