Liverpool will be without captain Jordan Henderson for the visit of West Ham. The midfielder is expected to miss the next three weeks after injuring his hamstring in the defeat at Atletico Madrid, though Jurgen Klopp has allayed any long-term injury fears.
Ryan Fredericks will miss the trip to Anfield after injuring ligaments in his shoulder in West Ham's defeat at Manchester City. The Hammers await results from a specialist before knowing the true extent of the right-back's injury.

- Liverpool have won their last two home Premier League matches against West Ham United, scoring four goals in each victory.
- West Ham have won one of their last 46 away league games against Liverpool, a 3-0 victory in August 2015 under Slaven Bilic; the Hammers have failed to score in 31 of those 46 games.
- West Ham have only led for 126 minutes in 23 away Premier League matches combined against Liverpool, with 87 of those in their 3-0 win at Anfield in August 2015.
- West Ham have won just two of their last 41 away top-flight games against sides starting the day top of the table (D8 L31), beating Manchester United 1-0 in May 2007 and Manchester City 2-1 in September 2015.
- Liverpool have won their last 17 Premier League games, just one shy of the all-time English top-flight record set by Manchester City between August-December 2017 (18).
Liverpool will have had a chance to recover from Tuesday's defeat in Madrid. We knew they would get it tough; they did not play well and had lots of the ball, but it was a dogged team that got physical and defended well, and that agitated Liverpool. This happens and it is the Champions League after all. We saw West Ham go to Man City and park the bus. David Moyes went with Michail Antonio instead of Sebastien Haller due to counter-attack threat. Robert Snodgrass could not keep the ball, and West Ham could not get out. If they go down 2-0, they will be happy with that, with goal difference to think about.
Liverpool will be the exact same, as it is three points closer to the Premier League title. They just need to get another game ticked off and though the crowd will want it to be more exciting, they will be happy to just get over the line too. Liverpool will take it nice and easy if they do score early, and then can afford to make the changes. Jurgen Klopp has to protect some of these players and do not want them to pick up any injuries for the return leg. The result will not be as damaging as some people may think.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 2-0 (6/1 with Sky Bet)
