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

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

The matches are coming thick and fast for Liverpool at the moment, with Brendan Rodgers’ side following up their FA Cup and Capital One Cup exploits with a Premier League match against West Ham United.

The Reds have experienced mixed fortunes in recent days, with their fine league form unable to help them defeat Bolton in the FA Cup (at least first time around) before they slipped out of the League Cup against Chelsea on Tuesday.

That said, there is still much for Liverpool to play for and they will look to get back to winning ways against the high-flying Hammers.

Liverpool are without the injured Brad Jones and Jon Flanagan while Kolo Toure is on Africa Cup of Nations duty.

Daniel Sturridge is nearing a return to the side while Steven Gerrard should recover from a hamstring injury and Mamadou Sakho is expected to overcome a slight knock.

Below is the side we predict Rodgers will pick this weekend:

Predicted Liverpool starting line-up: Mignolet, Can, Sakho, Skrtel, Manquillo, Moreno, Henderson, Lucas, Coutinho, Sterling, Lambert
