The sequel to Week 11 of the English Premier League 2021-2022 will feature a game between Liverpool and West Ham United at the Olympic Stadium in London on Sunday (7/11) evening WIB.
‘The Reds’ have a good record since the start of the season, having never tasted defeat in 10 games. Temporary ‘hammers‘will try to spoil the nickname.
“We just looked at their game record (West Ham) and evaluated it. They are a good team,” said Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.
In second place in the standings with a score of 22 points, thanks to 6 wins and 4 draws. Make Mohamed Salah et al the most productive Jurgen Klopp troops at the moment.
In addition, Salah is now the top scorer with 10 goals, followed by Sadio Mane with six goals, and Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota who have both scored four goals.
But arriving here, Liverpool’s performance is expected to be shaky with the storm of injuries they have suffered. With three rows of injured midfielders namely Naby Keita, James Milner and Curtis Jones. Meanwhile, forwards Harvey Elliot and Roberto Firmino will also be out.
“Curtis is less fortunate (compared to Firmino). But he will be able to play again, continuing to be watched,” Klopp said.
“We will see the situation (Keita and Milner), I hope the performances will improve after the international break. But we still have to wait, I cannot promise that. But that is what we are trying to do,” he added.
From the West Ham camp, which now occupies fourth place in the standings, they suffered two defeats. This poor record is not too visible with the score of three consecutive wins the last time they got it.
Of course, Michail Antonio has played an important role in his role at West Ham forward, he has managed to collect six goals and three assists since the start of the season.
Followed by two active West Ham midfielders, Mohamed Said Benrahma and Pablo Fornals who both scored three goals.
“It will be a tough game. We show how we play and tell them we’ve improved,” West Ham coach David Moyes said.
“Liverpool played really well last season and we have to be better. We are going to try everything here and teach them a lesson,” he continued.
The second match will be presented on Thursday (7/11) evening, at the Olympic stadium. (Et / 90Min / SportsMole / OL-09)
