Possible Liverpool starting line-up against West Ham
Liverpool travel to Upton Park to face West Ham United on Sunday and will look to extend their eight match winning streak.
Liverpool went to the top of the league after demolishing Tottenham 4-0 at Anfield on Sunday, after both Chelsea and Manchester City dropped points. The Reds are undefeated in their last 13 league matches, winning 11 of them.
Defence still remains the main headache for Brendan Rodgers. The Merseyside giants have conceded 39 goals this season, more than any of the sides in the top five.
However, this has been countered with exceptional attacking display, often using as a weapon to shield their frailties at the back, with the Reds scoring an impressive 88 goals, more than any other team in the Premier League.
Joe Allen was dropped in the last match as Brendan Rodgers started with both Coutinho and Raheem Sterling against Tottenham at Anfield in a 4-3-3 flexible system.
Rodgers has preferred a diamond formation away from home recently, when Allen started ahead of the young Sterling. Rodgers might also opt for Mamadou Sakho considering the aerial threat West Ham possess.
Rodgers has a nearly fully fit squad available with Jose Enrique being the only long term absentee for Liverpool. This could be the possible line-up:
Prediction: The momentum is with the reds and so I expect Liverpool to keep their title challenge on with a 2-1 win.
