Buoyed by their League Cup triumph last weekend, Liverpool entertain West Ham in Premier League action looking to stay on the coat-tails of Man City at the top.

Jurgen Klopp added another piece of silverware to the Reds' trophy cabinet with his side's penalty shootout win over Chelsea at Wembley last weekend.

Confidence could also not be higher after they booked their place in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup with a 2-1 victory over Norwich.

Here's how the Reds could line up for this weekend's league clash.


1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Alisson (GK) - Endured a nightmarish afternoon against West Ham in the reverse fixture.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (RB) - A frighteningly talented footballer, with his ten assists in the Premier League this season the joint-most in the Liverpool squad.

Joel Matip (CB) - The Reds look stronger with the Cameroon international in defence.

Virgil Van Dijk (CB) - His diagonal passes out of defence are such a vital weapon in Liverpool's armoury.

Andy Robertson (LB) - With Kostas Tsimikas providing stiff competition, the Scotland captian's energy on the left-hand side is infectious.

2. Midfielders

Fabinho (DM) - The Brazilian's defensive awareness is vital to the balance of the Liverpool side.

Jordan Henderson (CM) - Wears the captain's armband with distinction and will have his work cut out against the impressive Declan Rice.

Harvey Elliott (CM) - In the headlines for his League Cup final celebrations, although it's his precocious talent which should be getting spoken about.

3. Forwards

Mohamed Salah (RW) - The Reds' talisman this season, coming back from the African Cup of Nations with a point to prove.

Diogo Jota (ST) - Twelve goals in the Premier League this term, netting a brace against Leicester in Liverpool's last league outing at Anfield.

Luis Diaz (LW) - Made a huge impact since arriving from Porto just a few short weeks ago, to the extent that Klopp trusted the Colombian to start in the League Cup final.
