The Hammers face the current leader of the Premier League, Liverpool, on Monday (20:00, local time), a team that has only lost one match so far in the league. 


With the transfermarket already closed and almost no moves beyond the arrival of Samir Nasri, West Ham face the 25th day of the Premier League playing against one of the most complicated rival. Liverpool is dominating the league and showing every week that is a team with enough resourches to win the title.  


After losing 3-0 against Wolverhampton, the Hammers return to play in front of theri fans. Playing at home, they have not lost so far this year and hope to give a joy to the fans. It won't be easy because West Ham already lost 4-0 at Anfield in the first leg. 


Manuel Pellegrini cannot count on Marko Arnautovic, who ended the last match with some problems. Also Nasri will miss the game due to an injury. After missing the last match against Wolverhampton, Lucas Pérez returned to the call. In the last game he played (in the FA Cup against AFC Wimbledon), the Spanish striker scored a goal, something he will try to repeat against Liverpool. 


Klopp cannot count on Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, all of them injured. Virgil Van Dijk, Jordan Henderson and Georgino Wijnaldum are questionable for the game. The Reds will count on Mané, Salah and Firmino to get the three points.
