Liverpool and West Ham, both coming off recent victories in the Europa League on Thursday, are set to resume Premier League action this Sunday afternoon at Anfield. Despite an early setback, Liverpool managed to claim a 3-1 victory over Austrian team LASK on Thursday, maintaining their unbeaten record.
Meanwhile, West Ham also notched a comeback victory against Serbian team Backa Topola, with Mohammed Kudus scoring his inaugural goal for the Hammers in a 3-1 triumph.
As the clash between the two sides draws near, let’s have a look at the Liverpool vs West Ham predicted lineups.
Liverpool vs West Ham predicted lineups and news
Liverpool currently occupy the third-place spot in the Premier League standings, trailing Manchester City by just two points and lagging behind Tottenham Hotspur in goal difference, with one less goal scored than the Lilywhites.
Liverpool currently boast the longest unbeaten run in England’s top flight. We are starting to see the Reds of old and the rest of the league will be aware of what that side can do 👊

Jurgen Klopp’s side remains unbeaten in the Premier League at Anfield, extending their run to 14 matches since Leeds United’s shocking 2-1 victory last October. Remarkably, they have only failed to score in one of their last 44 top-flight games at their Merseyside stronghold.
The Hammers’ record has been almost impeccable, marred only by a 2-1 defeat to Man City during their season thus far. David Moyes’s team maintains a strong sixth-place position in the table, with 10 points to their name, but they have not managed to secure a clean sheet since the current season got underway.

Team news: Liverpool
One small downside to Liverpool’s victory against LASK Linz was the necessary substitution of Ryan Gravenberch, who was making his full debut. Gravenberch appeared visibly fatigued as he walked off the pitch in the second half.

Klopp remains optimistic that the new Liverpool recruit may have simply experienced cramps, but it is still unlikely that Trent Alexander-Arnold (hamstring) and Thiago Alcantara (hip) will be ready to make their comebacks for Sunday’s game.
Liverpool predicted lineup (4-3-3)
Alisson; Gomez, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson; Szoboszlai, Mac Allister, Jones; Salah, Gakpo, Jota
Team news: West Ham
Edson Alvarez sat out the Backa Topola, but the Mexican midfielder will expect to regain his starting XI position in this match.

West Ham boss David Moyes is dealing with a delightful selection headache in attack following Kudus’s outstanding performance in the Europa League. This could result in the Ghanaian international being favoured over Thomas Soucek if the away manager chooses to adopt a more offensive approach.
West Ham predicted lineup (4-2-3-1)
Areola; Coufal, Zouma, Aguerd, Emerson; Ward-Prowse, Alvarez; Bowen, Kudus, Benrahma; Antonio
Will Jarrod Bowen play?

West Ham ace Jarrod Bowen was not involved in midweek action as he had a virus. Even though it’s not 100% sure that he will travel with the squad, we expect to see the forward pass a late fitness test to feature in the match.
