Liverpool vs West Ham United: match preview and where to watch
Feb 24, 2020 at 8pm UK at Anfield
The defeat in Madrid hit the pride of Liverpool footballers. But it was unlikely to break the excellent atmosphere that reigns in the team. Much more “red” upset the loss of Jordan Henderson. The captain of the “Merseysiders” after the New Year gained a terrific shape, noting effective actions in almost every fight. And if in the championship of England Henderson’s lack of Liverpool’s chances to win the championship will not affect much due to a huge separation from his pursuers, then in the second match against Atlético Jordan’s skills will be noticeably lacking. It is expected that the captain of the “Reds” will miss about three weeks.
Liverpool team news
Jürgen Klopp has several options for replacing the captain in a duel with West Ham. Given that the “Hammers” with a high degree of probability entrench themselves near their own free kick, the most logical way out from the first minutes in the center of the field is Nabi Keita or Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. But most likely, Henderson will be replaced by another old-timer of the team – James Milner. Other changes in the “start” are not predicted, since enough time has passed since the departure to Madrid for the leaders of Liverpool to recover. Although the rotation of the place to be. Indeed, the gap in the championship from the re-investigators is crazy, and in the Champions League there is a tough nut from Madrid.
West Ham team news
West Ham is in a very difficult situation right now. And the point is not so much that the team is left without victories in six consecutive games (scored only two points), but in the heavy calendar. For David Moyes wards, the next duel in the Premier League (at home against Southampton) is turning into a key one, because the Londoners will have to play against Arsenal, Wolves, Tottenham and Chelsea – the teams that are fighting to enter the League champions. And if “West Ham” does not beat the “saints”, then it risks firmly getting stuck in the relegation zone.
Team possible starting lineup
Liverpool possible starting lineup:
Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Wijnaldum, Fabinho, Keita; Salah, Firmino, Mane
West Ham possible starting lineup:
Fabianski; Zabaleta, Diop, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Masuaku; Rice, Soucek, Noble; Antonio, Haller
