Liverpool vs West Ham

The Reds will look to bounce back from their sloppy, 2-2 draw to Brighton on Matchday 9 as they take on Westham this evening. Klopp and co endured an unfriendly evening as they gave away a 2-0 lead, Jordan Henderson and Nabir Keita's goals cancelled out by Brighton's Mwepu and Trossard.

And with Chelsea cruising to a comfortable 3-0 win over Newcastle on the same day, Liverpool fell short of the table leaders by two points making up for a total of three points.

But considering Chelsea's inability to beat Burnley, Klopp's men have a good chance to put the table the way it was as at Matchday 8.
The Hammers, however, are no joke. Moyes' men have been really impressive this campaign as they currently sit in fourth position, behind this evening's opponents, Liverpool. Six wins, two losses and two draws, the East London team are just two points shy of Klopp's men and have the potential to cause an upset in this evening's clash

It would be a bit interesting to note that Moyes' side are on a six-game unbeaten run in all competitions. The Hammers have also claimed an impressive 10 points out of a total 12 in the Europa League. In the post-match interview after the 2-2 draw with Genk, his 1000th game as a manager, Moyes talked with confidence when asked how he felt about the upcoming Liverpool game. He said " You know we've been playing well and yes, everybody knows Liverpool are a super team so looks, looks like a good game".

Declan Rice, who was also interviewed after the match, was self-asserting and optimistic about his team facing Liverpool

Liverpool will be without striker, Roberto Firmino, as the Brazilian picked up an injury midweek, in the win over Atletico Madrid.

Jurgen Klopp was interviewed about Firmino's injury in the pre-match press conference and he concurred to the fact that the No 9's hamstring injury was a big blow to the club, adding that he[Firmino] could be out for more than four weeks. The German tactician kind of commended the East London outfit for their performance against the Belgian side, claiming the Matchday 10 clash was going to be a good game as both teams were on good moments

Head to Head
The Reds and The Irons have locked horns 143 times till date. The former have won a greater 78 times while the latter have won a lesser 28 times with 37 draws shared between both teams.
