Liverpool provide explanation for James Milner absence vs West Ham

Liverpool’s squad announcement for the club’s meeting with West Ham United this evening also saw the Reds reveal why James Milner is not available to feature.

Liverpool host West Ham

Jurgen Klopp’s men are currently locked in action with the struggling Hammers at Anfield.

The two sides headed into proceedings on altogether-differing recent spells of form, and at opposite end of the Premier League table.

Hosts Liverpool are of course sitting pretty atop the English top-flight, having dropped just 2 points all season.

As such, another 3-point haul tonight would see the European champions take another considerable step towards a now-inevitable league title.

West Ham, on the other hand, are winless across all competitions since the 5th of January, a run of 7 straight games.

In addition, Liverpool put David Moyes’ men to the sword by 2 goals to nil less than 4 weeks ago.
