Here are a few notes about Liverpool's upcoming Premier League fixture with West Ham United. Trent Alexander Arnold could return to the team sheet after missing the last two matches due to injury. Thiago is still working his way back from surgery and his timetable for a return to the pitch is unclear at this time.
As for West Ham, Jarrod Bowen was ill and missed the Hammers' Europa League win midweek, so his availability is unknown at this time. Alphonse Areola, Kurt Zouma and Michail Antonio are all expected to return to the starting line-up after injuries while Edson Alvarez is back from suspension.
Both sides are in good form lately as Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 5 League fixtures while West Ham have only lost one in their last 5 and that was to Manchester City. Mohamed Salah and Darwin Núñez share the Liverpool scoring lead this season, with 3 a piece, while West Ham are led by Mohammed Kudus with 5 goals.
