Liverpool meet West Ham United in the Premier League this evening as the Reds look to close in on their first top-flight title for 30 years.

Liverpool have racked up more than three times the points of their opponents, and while Jurgen Klopp's side are aiming to extend their advantage over second-placed Manchester City to 22 points, the Hammers are desperate for even a draw which would lift them above Aston Villa and out of the bottom three.

For once Liverpool come into the game on the back of a defeat after going down 1-0 to Atletico Madrid in midweek in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie.

West Ham arrive having been beaten by City, and now face another brutal test at Anfield, but with a string of tricky games coming up and time running out, David Moyes's team cannot afford to lie down here.

Here's everything you need to know:

Jordan Henderson is out with a hamstring injury while West Ham remain without Andriy Yarmolenko.
