West Ham vs Liverpool

On current form this looks a no brainer to call. West Ham have lost three of their last six home games and have won just two, whilst Liverpool have won four of their last six away games. Add to that West Ham's defensive injuries and it is hard to predict a West Ham win. Liverpool enjoyed a nice break at the weekend while West Ham suffered a demoralising loss against Watford and also lost Neill to an ankle injury.

However West Ham have performed much better against the top clubs at home this season than against fellow strugglers and will hope that the return of Benayoun and a possible d├ębut for Kepa Blanco will give them some much needed fire power up front. West Ham will also be praying that Lucas Neill manages a quick recovery from his ankle injury and that Ferdinand is also fit to play. Calum Davenport will also return after being cup-tied at the weekend. Apart from Luis Garcia and Harry Kewell, the Reds are likely to be at full strength.

The game is live on Sky Sports 1. The game is also being streamed by Radio Five (UK only).
