Liverpool will be looking to build on their impressive win over Manchester City when they host West Ham United on Wednesday evening.
Liverpool have made a slow start to the campaign, but a Mohamed Salah goal helped them edge out champions Manchester City last Sunday.
Phil Foden had a second half goal disallowed, before Salah’s winner inflicted a first defeat of the season on City.
West Ham United have claimed seven points from three games since the international break and earned a 1-1 draw away at Southampton on Sunday.
Romain Perraud opened the scoring for the Saints, before Declan Rice equalised with his first goal of the campaign.

Diogo Jota came off injured late on in the win over Manchester City and will miss out here.
Trent Alexander Arnold was a surprise name on the bench and even made a cameo on Sunday meaning he should start.
West Ham originally deployed a 3-4-3 formation at St.Mary’s on Sunday; however improved after a move to a 4-3-3.
They will likely move to the latter for the trip to Anfield, with Kurt Zouma set to return from illness.
Expected starting XI’s
Liverpool (4-2-4): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Thiago; Salah, Nunez, Firmino, Elliott
West Ham United (4-3-3): Fabianski; Coufal, Zouma, Kehrer, Cresswell; Rice, Soucek, Paqueta; Bowen, Scamacca, Benrahma
They’ve not been great this season, but they will be confident of building on the win over Manchester City here
Correct Score: 2-1
Liverpool have kept just three clean sheets this season and West Ham will cause them trouble
Anytime Goalscorer: Mohamed Salah
Got to fancy him to build on his winner on Sunday. Salah also has 9 goals in 10 league games against West Ham
