After a comprehensive 4-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield last Sunday, Liverpool’s bid for the Premier League title is well and truly on, and their next challenge is a trip to Upton Park to take on West Ham United.
Having notched eight wins on the bounce, Brendan Rodgers’ side now have a league-leading 71 points on the board, while the Hammers have all but secured their Premier League safety, placing 11 points above the relegation zone after two important wins in a row.
The reverse fixture at Anfield took place in December, when a Guy Demel own goal, a first Liverpool goal from Mamadou Sakho and a late Luis Suarez brace gave the home side a 4-1 win. Since then, ex-Liverpool record signing Andy Carroll has made his way back into Sam Allardyce’s first team after injury and impressed up front.
Here’s our Liverpool lineup for Sunday’s clash at Upton Park. We are keeping with the 4-3-3 formation reintroduced to the side, both to offer more width against the wing-heavy Hammers and to add more central numbers against a powerful West Ham midfield.
