Back on track
West Ham’s new Mexico striker Guillermo Franco only signed on Thursday and is unlikely to feature.
Alessandro Diamanti may make his full debut, while Kieron Dyer (hamstring) returns along with Herita Ilunga whose cheekbone injury has healed.
Liverpool midfielder Javier Mascherano has recovered from a pelvic injury gained on international duty.
Fabio Aurelio has regained full fitness, while Nabil El Zhar has also recovered from a knee problem.
Suspended: None Doubtful: Jimenez (muscle)
Injured: Boa Morte (knee), Ashton (ankle/foot)
Suspended: None Doubtful: None
Injured: Aquilani (ankle), Agger (back) (BBC Sport)
Three straight wins since the Aston Villa nightmare have steadied out ship somewhat and we are creating loads of chances every time we take the field, unfortunately against Debrecen we couldn’t finish off the moves put together by the likes of in form Gerrard and Benayoun.
West Ham will be a tricky team to overturn on their own patch and whilst they only have one win from their four games this season it is worth noting that three of those have been away from home and that they have played pretty decently this term.
My Prediction: 1-0 to Liverpool
