Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has made three changes to the side that faced Leicester City last week, for his team’s trip to West Ham United.
Liverpool welcome back veteran midfielder James Milner into the starting lineup, now that he has served his one-match suspension. The former Manchester City starts at right-back, while the rest of the defence remains intact, with Joel Matip, Virgil van Dijk and Andrew Robertson all holding on to their spots in front of goalkeeper Alisson.
Club captain Jordan Henderson misses out with a muscular problem, while fellow midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum, who impressed against Leicester, has also been ruled with a knee injury. With both of them absent, Fabinho gets the nod in the middle of the park, alongside Adam Lallana and Naby Keita.
