As Liverpool prepare to host West Ham in perhaps their toughest fixture so far this season, here’s the Liverpool predicted lineup vs West Ham.

Liverpool predicted lineup vs West Ham

Allison will start between the sticks, after some invaluable minutes for Kelleher in midweek. This seems to be the rotation which works best for Jurgen Klopp, so why fix something which isn’t broken?

I can see the same centre back partnership which started in midweek to feature again versus West Ham. Virgil van Dijk made his return and Ibrahima Konate impressed as always. The French defender was subbed off in the midweek fixture, likely with the Premier League in mind.

At right-back, Joe Gomez played the last 30 minutes in midweek but was rested to start with so he’s likely to play this fixture. Andrew Robertson was unused in midweek, so he will be fresh to surely start this match.

I would give the start to Ryan Gravenberch, who I think played excellently in midweek and of course he got the assist. There were injury concerns, but Klopp revealed he was only suffering from a case of cramp. Of course, you can’t take the other two midfield slots away from Dominik Szoboszlai and Alexis Mac Allister.

Starting out on the right, it will be the OBVIOUS Mohamed Salah. He’s the most consistent player in world football and a large part to thank for Liverpool’s unbeaten run. Therefore, he will start. So too will Luis Diaz who scored in the Europa League. Starting as the striker, it’s likely to be Cody Gakpo as Nunez played the full Europa League fixture.

Liverpool predicted lineup vs West Ham: Allison, Gomez, Van Dijk, Konate, Robertson; Gravenberch, Szoboszlai, Mac Allister, Salah, Diaz, Gakpo
