Three minutes of injury time to be played.


GOAL FOR WEST HAM! Finally a set piece comes through for West Ham. The corner is inadvertently flicked on by Robertson at the front post and Dawson side-foots home from six yards out.


GOAL FOR LIVERPOOL! Fantastic link up between Oxlade-Chamberlain and Firmino who unselfishly squares the ball for Wijnaldum to slot home from the centre of the six-yard box.


The game does seem to have died down now. Liverpool keeping the ball and West Ham not overly desiring to get it back.


Oxlade-Chamberlain comes on for Origi for his 100th appearance as a substitute.


Fredericks and Noble come on for Bowen and Antonio. Not an obviously attacking move.


Thiago draws defenders and then plays back to Salah who shoots at goal but high and wide of the target.


Fabianski claims an inswinging corner well.


Shaqiri is off after maybe his best moment in a Liverpool shirt. Firmino comes on.


WHAT A GOAL! As good a counter-attack goal as you will see. Jones plays a cross-field ball for Shaqiri who hits a first time curling ball for Salah who controls sublimely and then delicately slips the ball past Fabianski.


Dawson should have done better! A good cross from Bowen and Dawson leaps highest but it comes off his shoulder and flies wide.


West Ham forcing a few corners where you have to think is their best chance to score.


Ouch! Henderson cops a boot to the head from Soucek as the midfielder tried a scissor kick. He seems fine.


Yarmolenko comes on for Fornals for West Ham.


Jones has made a difference since coming on. He runs at the defence and then plays in Saha who lost control before being able to put a cross in.


David Moyes looking to make a change.


GOAL FOR LIVERPOOL! Salah cuts in on his left foot and curls an effort inside the far post. Jones was twice involved in the build-up. Good substitution!


Jones comes on for Milner who isn't too happy at coming off.


Antonio with a chance on the counter-attack as Bowen squares the ball into the box and as Milner slips looking to intercept, the striker has the chance to settle himself before curling a low effort just wide with Alisson beaten.


A fine long ball from Henderson is headed towards goal by Salah straight at Fabianski.


Cresswell has a chance to cross for Antonio after being teed up by Forbals but his cross goes behind for a goal kick.


Salah puts through Origi who shoots into the side-netting from a tight angle.


Soucek picks up a yellow card for a foul earlier in the move.


Origi drives into the box and for a moment it looked open for Salah to shoot but Cresswell manages to get in front of him to stifle the shot.


Rice is late on Henderson, who is buccaneering forward, and picks up a yellow card.


Thiago clips a ball over the defence for Alexander-Arnold but it is a little firm and the full back a little bit offside - probably.


Liverpool get us back underway. No personnel changes for either side.

Half Time

A lot of possession for Liverpool but no punch so far.


Salah has the best effort of the half, not saying a great deal, and Fabianski has to move slightly to his left before gathering.


An incisive ball from Thiago from the left flank but Origi on the stretch isn't able to divert the ball past Fabianski.


Benrahma's cross finds Antonio on the far post but on the stretch the Hammers striker can only gently head the ball back into the keeper's grasp.


Again a disappointing set piece from the best dead ball side in the country with Coufal's cross cleared by Phillips.


Benrahma wins a free kick on the right wing luring Thiago into a foul just wide of the right edge of the penalty area.


A short-corner leads to Bowen curling a ball straight into Alisson's arms.


Antonio tries to fire an early cross into tthe box but it is put behind by Henderson.


Milner is showing a lot of desire to get beyond his forwards but on this occasion cannot get on the end of Thiago's long ball.


Salah does well to hold up a long ball from Henderson and tees up Shaqiri whose effort is blocked by Dawson.


Good attack from West Ham which started from Rice bursting into the Liverpool half and screwing a ball to the left flank that led to Cresswell getting to the by-line and after Antonio and Benrahma got in each other's way, Fornals saw a couple of efforts at goal blocked.


Thiago puts in a deep inswinging cross from the left flank that Salah heads just wide of the target.


A dangerous-looking cross from Alexander-Arnold is headed away by Ogbonna.


Liverpool having a lot of possession but it is a bit of a stalemate at the moment.


Thiago shoots at goal after a free kick falls to him on the edge of the box but Antonio blocks his effort.


Origi gets to the by-line and Coufal makes a good sliding challenge to avoid him pulling the ball back to Salah.


Antonio gets beyond Alexander-Arnold after Salah gave the ball away and crosses into the box but Phillips does well to clear the danger.


Wijnadum bursts from midfield and blasts the ball towards goal but it flies a yard or so over the bar.


Liverpool's two new reserve members of their front three combine with Shaqiri slipping the ball to Origi in the left hand side of the penalty area and he strikes the ball well but into the net. Salah stares at him in the middle with hands on hips.


West Ham get us underway....


The Bubbles are blowing and we are just about ready to go...


Jurgen Klopp explains why Sane and Firmino are not in the starting line-up today. The Brazilian is on the bench.


Firmino stays on the bench surprisingly with Salah, Origi and Shaqiri upfront for the Reds. Not the triple threat of yore is it?


West Ham's superb run has coincided, unsurprisingly, with the return of Michail Antonio to their side, and he will give the makeshift Liverpool central defence of Jordan Henderson and Nathaniel Phillips all they can handle.


Liverpool of course broke their five-game run without a win with a 3-1 win down the road at Tottenham on Thursday night.


West Ham certainly are in form since the New Year with league wins against Everton, West Brom, Burnley and Crystal Palace. They are now a totally different prospect from the side that lost to Liverpool 2-0 in this fixture 12 months ago.


The bookies are certainly fearing the Hammers with the team news seeing the Hammers' price come in from around 4-1 to 5/2 in places, while Liverpool have switched odds-against from odds-on.


There's been a number of upsets in the last few days of Premier League football and West Ham's chance of creating another is certainly helped with the absence of Sadio Mane.


This is how the in-form Hammers line up...


This is the Liverpool side who will take the field at the London Stadium...
