Liverpool vs West Ham Match Preview and Team News
Liverpool take on West Ham at Anfield to contend the quarter-final of the 2023/24 EFL Cup. Only Chelsea, Newcastle, Everton and Fulham remain as the only other Premier League sides left, making Liverpool the clear favorites to lift the cup and extend their record nine titles in this competition. Liverpool disappointed again at Anfield in their last outing as they failed to find a breakthrough against bitter rivals Manchester United. Jurgen Klopp would have to settle for a point in the 0-0 draw despite seeing his side take 34 shots and hold 68% of the ball. Dominik Szoboszlai has excellent ball control and can play in several positions, and every team needs a player like that. Luiz Diaz is enjoying himself on the field, and when he receives the ball and goes towards the goal, the opponent has problems because he goes through the defense like a fast train. Diogo Jota (Muscle injury), Alexis Mac Allister (Knee injury), Stefan Bajcetic (Calf injury), Andrew Robertson (Shoulder injury), Thiago (Hip injury) and Joel Matip (Cruciate ligament tear) will be missing for Liverpool gaffer Jürgen Klopp.
West Ham have recovered nicely after a bumpy stretch of form in October. The Hammers have now ripped off seven wins, one draw and only one loss in their last nine fixtures across all competitions. They will be in for an upset here as they look to extend their current winning streak to three consecutive matches following a 3-0 home win over Wolves at the weekend. In the previous round, West Ham eliminated one of the favorites of the competition, Arsenal, with a score of 3-1. Lucas Paqueta plays great and does not allow the opponent to play in the middle of the field. Manchester City is interested in the Brazilian international and has offered 80 million to the Hammers. Pablo Fornals is a great player, he creates a lot of problems for his opponents, and the greatest virtue of this guy is speed. In an otherwise full-strength group of players, there’s just one fitness issue for West Ham United boss David Moyes to be concerned about. Michail Antonio (Knee injury) misses out on this game.
