Welcome to our live coverage of West Ham United against Liverpool.
It’s fourth against fifth in the Premier League, with the Hammers two points behind last year’s champions at the start of play.
David Moyes’ side have won three games on the bounce and will be looking to capitalise on an injury ravaged Liverpool side.
Fabinho and Joel Matip have picked up recent knocks to add to Virgil Van Dijk and Joe Gomez being long term absentees.
Nat Phillips or Rhys Williams are set to partner Jordan Henderson in a hastily assembled back line.
Having ended a run of 482 minutes in the league without a goal in Thursday night’s 3-1 win over Tottenham, Jurgen Klopp’s side are looking to pick up back-to-back league wins for the first time since October.
West Ham though will be full of confidence coming into the game, having won all six games so far in 2021.
The Hammers have never won six successive games at the start of a calendar year in their entire history.
Jesse Lingard could make his debut for the Hammers after signing on loan from Manchester United earlier this week, while Arthur Masuaku and Darren Randolph remain out for David Moyes.
Kick off is at 4.30pm and team news will follow shortly.
