Jurgen Klopp’s men are seeking to reinforce their place at the top of the Premier League with three more points.
Liverpool’s next stop in their quest for the Premier League title is West Ham’s London Stadium, which will play host to Jurgen Klopp’s Reds on Monday.
After Pep Guardiola’s men beat Arsenal 3-1 on Sunday, the Reds can re-establish a five-point advantage at the summit of the standings.
Having missed the opportunity to open clear water in midweek when they were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Leicester.
West Ham host Liverpool at the London Stadium tonight with both teams in need of a statement result.
The Hammers have lost their past three games following a surprise 1-0 Premier League win over Arsenal on January 12 – a result which must feel a long time ago for Manuel Pellegrini.
West Ham, meanwhile, has lost their last three fixtures in all competitions but did beat Arsenal 1-0 in their previous home outing and still have an outside chance of European football if they can string together a strong run.
If Liverpool felt that they needed any more incentive to retain first place in the Premier League, Manchester City defender Kyle Walker may just have given it to them.
The Reds missed a golden opportunity to move seven points clear in the race for the title on Wednesday as they were surprisingly held to a 1-1 home draw against Leicester, which manager Jurgen Klopp put partly down to the snow on the pitch.
