Liverpool host West Ham United this evening as the Reds look to take another step towards their first top-flight title in three decades.

Liverpool already have more than three times the points of their opponents this evening, 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 they European champions come into a 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.
