The official West Ham United site has made it clear that David Moyes will assess the fitness of Kurt Zouma (illness) and Craig Dawson (dead leg) ahead of Wednesday’s game at Anfield.
And the best ClaretandHugh could get when asking cobtacts inside the club was “”Who knows?” which is a clear indication that the manager is clamping down hard on pre-match news close to the game itself – fair enough”
In the meantime, Mooysie has suggested that he may be compelled to go with a back five as the Reds bid to follow up on their weekend win over Manchester City.
However, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has confirmed he will need to deal with a number of absentees.
Portugal forward Diogo Jota is out with a long-term calf injury suffered in Sunday’s win over Manchester City, while French defender Ibrahima Konaté, Cameroon centre-back Joel Matip and Colombia winger Luis Díaz have also been ruled out by the German.
