Manager Jurgen Klopp makes two changes to the side that beat Sunderland just three days ago, with Lucas Leiva coming in for the injured Jordan Henderson in midfield and Jordon Ibe replaces Adam Lallana in attack.

Ibe takes his place alongside Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino, behind Christian Benteke.

Benteke continues up front, having scored the only goal in the 1-0 wins over Leicester and Sunderland.

The same back four of Nathaniel Clyne, Dejan Lovren, Mamadou Sakho and Alberto Moreno continues.

This is Liverpool’s last league game at West Ham‘s Upton Park Stadium. In total the Reds have played there 63 times, winning 23 and losing 22. The Hammers move to the Olympic Stadium next season.
