How we predict West Ham to line-up against Liverpool

W

est Ham can leapfrog champions Liverpool back into the top four with a win on Sunday.

The Hammers are looking to make it a perfect January with a seventh win in seven games since the new year at the London Stadium this weekend.

David Moyes and his side are on a high and ran Liverpool close in the reverse fixture earlier in the season, but a key difference this time around will be the presence of Michail Antonio, who missed out through injury last time around against the Reds.

The Hammers talisman, who has two goals in his last three starts and could well have scored a hat-trick against Crystal Palace in the week, will fancy his chances against a Liverpool back line desperately short of centre-backs.

Jesse Lingard was finalising his move to east London on Friday but is not thought to have been registered in time to be included in the squad for Sunday.

Predicted West Ham XI (4-2-3-1): Fabianski; Coufal, Dawson, Ogbonna, Cresswell; Rice, Soucek; Bowen, Benrahma, Fornals, Antonio

Sunday 4.30pm, Sky Sports
