Liverpool were held to a 1-1 draw against West Ham at the London Stadium. The Hammers haven't been at their best recently, and following their losses to Bournemouth and most recently Wolverhampton Wanderers, they are now stationed in 12th place in the league standings.
Liverpool has scored four goals in each of their last four games against West Ham. After the game in Newcastle, Liverpool were seven points ahead and now they are two. "Our target is to go as far as possible in all the competitions".
Liverpool had seen both Tottenham Hotspur and Man City close the gap with wins over the weekend, but the leaders were sluggish from the off and could have fallen behind within three minutes when Javier Hernandez curled narrowly wide after being teed up by Mark Noble.
Barcelona 2 - 2 Valencia | 02 Feb 2019
A gripping contest at Camp Nou saw Barcelona recover from an early two-goal deficit to claim a point against visitors Valencia . Captain Dani Parejo's shot was saved by Marc-Andre ter Stegen, before Kevin Gameiro struck the loose ball against a post.
However, the Reds manager made it clear that he thought his side were not at their best and that West Ham were well-worthy of a point.
To compound this, Virgil van Dijk will miss the first leg of Liverpool's Champions League last-16 clash with Bayern Munich due to suspension, while Nathaniel Clyne was allowed to leave on loan early on in the winter window. The 26-year-old is chasing the 50-goal mark for Liverpool in the Premier League and now has 48 strikes against his name after 60 matches.
West Ham: When West Ham beat Arsenal in mid January, it looked like the club was about to turn the corner. Their most potent goal threat, Marko Arnautovic, is expected to have recovered from injury in time for this match.
"After that if we can give a hand to Manchester City, it's not our problem, but of course I am a fan of Manchester City also".
