West Ham v Liverpool update and ways to follow


West Ham v Liverpool update and ways to follow

The Hammers Carabao Cup clash at Liverpool  can be watched live on Sky Sports this evening and for those without the station you can follow on  the club’s blog or listen on BBC Radio 5 Live and worldwide on our official website and app.

The game will be settled on the night at Anfield and should the scores be level at 90 minutes there will be no extra time with a penalty shoot-out being held straight away.

The managers will be allowed to name nine subs of which just five can become involved over  a maximum of three opportunities  excluding half-time.

Michail Antonio remains our only absentee and we understand that Alphonse Areola has recovered from a wrist injury enough to take a place in the matchday squad although Lukasz Fabianski is likely to retain his place as the Cup keeper.

Thiago Alcantara is still absent for Liverpool with a hip issue, while Joel Matip has sustained a serious knee injury that is expected to rule him out for the remainder of the season.

Left-back Andrew Robertson and Portuguese forward Diogo Joto are nearing a return to action but Wednesday’s cup clash could come too soon for the duo.
