Liverpool v West Ham

Neymar playing is ‘better for entertainment’ says Falcao ahead of Monaco vs PSG

West Ham will be looking to make it a hat-trick of wins over Liverpool this season when they visit Anfield in the FA Cup fourth round on Saturday.

The Hammers have had the Reds' number this term, beating them 3-0 at Anfield and 2-0 at Upton Park in their two league meetings.

The Londoners have impressed in the league and are currently sitting in sixth in the standings, one place and two points ahead of their weekend opposition.

Nikica Jelavic scored the only goal of the game as Slaven Bilic's men squeaked past Wolves with a 1-0 win in the previous round.

Bilic is hopeful skipper Mark Noble will be passed fit to feature, having missed training with flu this week.

Carl Jenkinson is definitely out after being ruled out for the remainder of the season after picking up a knee injury against Manchester City.

New arrival Sam Byram is cup-tied, so James Tomkins is expected to fill in at right-back.

Michail Antonio (wrist) is available, but Andy Carroll (hamstring), Manuel Lanzini and Diafra Sakho (both thigh) remain out.

Liverpool, meanwhile, needed a replay to get past Exeter City in the last round of the FA Cup and come into this game off the back of penalty shoot-out win over Stoke in the second leg of the Capital One Cup semi-finals.

Nathaniel Clyne remains a doubt for the Reds, but Dejan Lovren is fit again. Skipper Jordan Henderson has been ruled out.
