- THREE CHANGES, BOWEN STARTS: WEST HAM PREDICTED XI TO FACE LIVERPOOL – OPINION
Three changes, Bowen starts: West Ham predicted XI to face Liverpool – opinion
West Ham United’s performance in their 2-0 loss against Manchester City was pathetic – Rodri completed more passes than the whole Hammers team combined.
Considering this, it feels pretty unlikely they’ll be able to get anything from their trip to Anfield, seeing as Liverpool went into the weekend’s action 22 points ahead at the top of the Premier League.
However, with West Ham currently occupying a place in the relegation zone, they should be desperate to pick up points wherever they can.
With that in mind, FFC has predicted the starting XI that David Moyes could use in an attempt to get a result against the Reds. We’re tipping three changes to be made.
Fabianski is the club’s undisputed number 1 so stays between the sticks, while he has the same defensive trio looking to protect him, with Aaron Cresswell, Angelo Ogbonna and Issa Diop all starting.
Arthur Masuaku also stays in the starting lineup, though Moyes will be forced to make a change at right-wing-back, due to Ryan Fredericks damaging the ligaments in his shoulder.

While Pablo Zabaleta is the man who replaced him, Jeremy Ngakia could do so this time around, having impressed fans with his debut performance when West Ham last played Liverpool.
All three of the players included in the midfield for this XI – Tomas Soucek, Declan Rice and Robert Snodgrass – featured during the loss against Man City.
Whose Line Is It Anyway: Michael Owen, Garth Crooks or Mark Lawrenson?
Moyes was heavily criticised for leaving Jarrod Bowen on the bench for so long at the Etihad, but he may give the man signed from Hull City on deadline day his full debut at Anfield.
Sebastien Haller was left out for the entire game against City, as Michail Antonio took up the role of the main striker, but the Frenchman could reclaim his place in the team on this occasion.
Meanwhile, Moyes’ comments epitomised West Ham’s gutless performance against Man City.
