Liverpool are in unstoppable form at the moment and will look to register their 9th consecutive premier league win when they face West Ham.
The merseysiders dismantled Spurs at Anfield last weekend to go two points clear at the top. From now on, if Liverpool win every game, no one can deny them the title.
With the potential title deciding game coming up against Manchester City, Reds cannot afford to drop points against West Ham this weekend.
Steven Gerrard is one booking away from suspension but has managed to see off two games and at this particular stage, the captain’s presence and leadership is significant in each game.
Hence, Stevie must start the game against Hammers.
It is always a tricky fixture against Sam Allardyce’s side, but their main threat always comes from long balls and wings. Therefore, Rodgers does not need to revert back to 4-1-2-1-2 diamond formation as the Hammers do not have a dominating midfield department.
So both Sterling and Coutinho should retain their place in the starting XI. Moreover, after impressive defensive display against Tottenham, Rodgers will feel no need to make any change in the defense as well.
Here is Liverpool’s strongest XI to face West Ham.
