Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers named an unchanged line-up for the Premier League clash with West Ham following last Monday’s goalless draw with Arsenal.

The Reds are unbeaten this season having taken seven points from their first three matches, and with captain Jordan Henderson still absent through injury, James Milner continues to lead the side.

West Ham meanwhile will look to bounce back from consecutive defeats to Leicester and Bournemouth, and manager Slaven Bilic makes two enforced changes to his starting line-up.
