How Liverpool should line up against West Ham

Jurgen Klopp DortmundLiverpool have one foot in the quarter finals of the Champions League after beating Porto 5-0 away from home in the first leg of their R16 contest last week.

Next up, the Reds will collide against West Ham United in the Premier League and at Anfield, Jurgen Klopp’s men should be considered favorites to earn all three points. Earlier in the season, the Merseysiders defeated West Ham 4-1 at the Olympic Stadium.

As far as the team news is concerned, Liverpool players have got ample rest after their Champions League contest against Porto and we can expect Klopp to start the strongest possible side vs the Hammers.

In the attacking third, Roberto Firmino should start as the lone center forward up front and behind him, the likes of Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah should start in the wide offensive positions.

German international Emre Can could return to start in the midfield. He might replace James Milner to start with Wijnaldum and skipper Henderson in the center of the park.

As far as the back line is concerned, Joel Matip should replace Lovren to partner Van Dijk in the central defense. On the other hand, Jose Gomez may get the nod to start in the right back position.

Here is how Liverpool should line up against West Ham United.
