The Hammers players will fancy their chances tomorrow night against a Liverpool side who have been nowhere near their best this season.

Aside from those four players mentioned above, the visitors might have another key man missing from action as well…

Jurgen Klopp provides injury update ahead of West Ham vs Liverpool

The German spoke to reporters this afternoon during his pre-match press conference, ahead of his side’s trip to the Capital tomorrow night.

And Klopp suggested that Ibrahima Konate is a doubt for the game at the London Stadium, as quoted by Liverpool’s official website:

“Ibou, we need to see how it is with him but at the moment, I’m rather positive.”

Described by Goal as an ‘exceptional’ defender, Konate has become a really key player for Liverpool.

The Reds really won’t want to head into the clash with West Ham without the France international defender.

However, the fact that Klopp says he is positive about the 23-year-old’s fitness will undoubtedly please the Liverpool fans.

The West Ham vs Liverpool clash will be absolutely vital for both sides. And if Konate doesn’t play, I reckon we’ll have a great chance of winning the game.
