Liverpool team news vs West Ham United today as the Reds return to Premier League action.
Liverpool face off against West Ham United in the Premier League, where Jürgen Klopp’s squad will have to cope without two key players. Anfield braces for an intense showdown as David Moyes’ West Ham presents a formidable challenge.
Today marks Liverpool’s return to Premier League action at Anfield as they square off against David Moyes’ formidable West Ham United side, who have kicked off the new season in impressive form.
In midweek, Jürgen Klopp’s men embarked on a journey to Austria to clash with LASK in the Europa League. They displayed their resilience once again, falling behind by a goal initially but ultimately triumphing 3-1. The game saw Luis Díaz earning a penalty that Darwin Núñez successfully converted, followed by a goal from the Colombian himself. Mohamed Salah added a late third goal to seal the victory.
This win further solidified Liverpool’s strong start to the season, with Chelsea being the only team to halt their winning streak so far. It’s worth noting that Chelsea’s recent struggles may impact how we evaluate that result.
West Ham, on the other hand, have already secured an away victory against Brighton this season and suffered a loss only at the hands of Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City. The London-based team boasts a roster of talented players, including Jarrod Bowen, Lucas Paquetá, and James Ward-Prowse, making them a formidable adversary that Liverpool must overcome.
What’s the Latest Liverpool Team News?
Klopp made wholesale changes for the Europa League fixture, with Virgil van Dijk and Ibrahima Konaté likely to retain their positions to maintain their forms. However, the rest of the squad is at risk of being benched. Joe Gomez might step in as a full-back if Trent Alexander-Arnold isn’t fit to play, and Andy Robertson is set to return. Ryan Gravenberch experienced cramping during Thursday’s match, and Alexis Mac Allister, Dominik Szoboszlai, and Curtis Jones are all expected to feature in this game.
