Liverpool team news and predicted XI vs West Ham United

Liverpool Team News

  • Out: Roberto Firmino, Naby Keïta, Stefan Bajčetić, Calvin Ramsay
  • Doubt: N/A

With seven matches left in the 2022-23 Premier League campaign, Premier League giants Liverpool still maintain an outside chance of a late run of form gifting them European football next season as beloved manager Jürgen Klopp hopes to push the club as high as the Champions League places if the chips fall his way.

Sitting just one point off sixth and a pathway into the Europa League, the odds of banking a top-four finish are remote given the nine-point gap to both Newcastle United and Manchester United, but recent results against Leeds United and Nottingham Forest suggest that the club could fire their way to a position that would be viewed as a timely recovery effort after many fans thought the club would be without a continental campaign entirely in 2023-24.

Coming into their midweek clash with West Ham United in the capital, Klopp will be without the services of Roberto Firmino despite a recent return to duty after the Brazilian suffered another injury setback. Naby Keïta, Stefan Bajčetić, and Calvin Ramsay all remain absent as well, and there could be changes to the team with the possibility of Darwin Núñez slotting in at center-forward to replace Cody Gakpo in order for in-form winger Diogo Jota to retain his place in the XI.
