Is West Ham vs Liverpool on TV today? Kick-off time, channel and how to watch Premier League fixture

Liverpool face West Ham United on Sunday afternoon as they try to continue the stunning away form which has underpinned their season so far.

The Reds have scored a minimum of three goals in all five of their away fixtures so far this season, including five each in their most recent two victories, over Watford at Vicarage Road and Manchester United at Old Trafford. With 29 goals in 10 matches so far, Jürgen Klopp’s men are the top scorers in the division.

The Irons, meanwhile, have won four of their last five matches in the league and are flying in Europe too, leading their group by four points with two matches remaining. Both of their league defeats this season have come at home, though, against Brentford and Manchester United.

Here is everything you need to know about the fixture:

When is it?

The match will kick-off at 4:30pm in the UK on Sunday 7 November, and will take place at the London Stadium.

Team news

Liverpool’s injury issues have been compounded by the hamstring problem suffered by Roberto Firmino against Atlético Madrid in midweek, which Jürgen Klopp described as “serious” in his Friday press conference and will keep the Brazilian out for at least four weeks. Curtis Jones and Joe Gomez are also out until after the international break, but Fabinho and Thiago Alcantara are available after returning in midweek.

David Moyes’ only injury concerns are Nikola Vlasic and Andriy Yarmolenko, who both missed the Europa League draw away at Genk on Thursday night, but neither would be likely to start here even if fully fit. Vladimir Coufal started at right-back in that fixture, suggesting 21-year-old Ben Johnson could be given his fourth successive league start in the Czech’s stead.

Predicted line-ups

West Ham: Fabianski; Johnson, Ogbonna, Zouma, Cresswell; Rice, Soucek; Bowen, Benrahma, Fornals; Antonio.

Liverpool: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Konaté, Van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Thiago, Henderson; Salah, Jota, Mané.

Odds

West Ham 39/10

Draw 16/5

Liverpool 3/4

Prediction

With two strong defences and both sides in strong form this will be a tightly contest matched, but the Hammers haven’t come up against anybody operating at the level Mohamed Salah is this season, and the Egyptian could prove the difference. 2-1 to Liverpool.
