Liverpool were not able to win against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Monday night but their performance was praise worthy.
Next up, the Merseysiders face West Ham United at Anfield. The Hammers started the new season in brilliant fashion by defeating the Gunners away from home.
However, in the next two fixtures (played at home), Slaven Bilic’s men suffered defeat at the hands of Leicester City and newly promoted Bournemouth side. Can they step up and earn something against in–form Liverpool?
As far as Liverpool’s team news is concerned, captain Jordan Henderson’s return is still doubtful and it is highly unlikely that he will make it into the starting XI vs West Ham. Lucas Leiva was effective against the North Londoners and the manager was impressed by his performance as well. Expect the Brazilian star to retain his starting place.
Moreover, Firmino made his first start for Liverpool against Arsenal and should retain his starting place as well.
Here is Liverpool’s probable starting XI formation vs West Ham.
