Are Liverpool good again? Sunday's febrile 1-0 victory against Manchester City was comfortably the Reds' best Premier League performance of the season, but that will count for naught when an improving West Ham rock up at Anfield on Wednesday night, desperate to take the three points back to East London for what would be the second time since 1963.

The teams are in and Liverpool make five changes as Trent Alexander-Arnold, Jordan Henderson, Kostas Tsimikas, Fabio Carvalho and Darwin Nunez replace James Milner, Fabinho, Andy Robertson, Harvey Elliott and the injured Diogo Jota in the starting XI. Mo Salah starts, but is likely to revert to right wing, with Nunez through the middle and Roberto Firmino continuing as a No.10. The lesser-spotted Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain returns to the bench. 

West Ham make three changes as midfielder Flynn Downes makes his first Premier League start since joining from Swansea City in the summer. Downes comes into the XI along with Kurt Zouma and Pablo Fornals. Emerson, Vladimir Coufal and the absent Lucas Paqueta drop out in what looks a return to a back four for David Moyes. Gianluca Scamacca starts up front with Jarrod Bowen to his right.

Now up to eighth, Liverpool's weekend victory was as thrilling as it was essential to steady the Reds' listing Premier League season. Goalkeeper Alisson's late pick-out for Mo Salah to score just his third league goal of the campaign secured the three points, and boss Jurgen Klopp will hope that victory can restore the aura he has built at Anfield.

The Merseysiders will have to do without Diogo Jota, however, who joins Luis Diaz on the treatment table. That means a recall for the much-maligned record signing Darwin Nunez could be on the cards.

West Ham, meanwhile, are also on the up. After beginning the Premier League season with just one win in their first seven games, David Moyes' side have picked up seven points in their last nine as they close in on a spot in the top half of the division.

Summer signing Gianluca Scamacca is starting to find his feet for the Hammers and has four goals in his last six games in all competitions, while captain Declan Rice's equaliser against Southampton at the weekend is testament to his continued excellence. Can they pick up what would be just a second league victory at Anfield since 1963?

The match kicks off at 7.30pm BST tonight, Wednesday 19th October 2022. Follow our guide on how to watch a Liverpool vs West Ham live stream from wherever you are in the world.
