Liverpool enters the weekend fourth in the Premier League table and four points behind leaders Manchester City having played one game more.
The defending champions could potentially close the gap on Manchester United in second and Leicester City in third but that depends on how results go elsewhere.
As far as Sunday’s opponents West Ham United are concerned, a win in London could leapfrog Liverpool — potentially dropping Jurgen Klopp and his men to the outer reaches of the European qualifying positions.
