Is Liverpool v West Ham on TV? Channel guide, kick-off time and team news ahead of Premier League game

Liverpool will host West Ham tonight, Wednesday 19 October, after beating Manchester City on the weekend. Team news and how to watch fixture

Liverpool have not enjoyed the same success to the start of the 2022/23 season that they experienced last year but after Sunday’s win over Manchester City, Jurgen Klopp will hope his luck with the squad changes. Mohamed Salah scored what proved to be the only goal in the 76th minute in a match filled with numerous chances for both sides.

During the heated fixture, Jurgen Klopp was shown a red card for fuming at the assistant referee. It was currently not known whether Klopp will be in the dugout or not for Liverpool’s upcoming match and has said: “I think I should have dealt with it differently, with the situation, which I do normally. It was a very intense game with a lot of decisions that the managers on both sides didn’t understand. I’m not happy with my reaction but that’s the way it was and everybody saw it. That’s the situation, I got the red card but now we wait for the process I suppose.”

West Ham will travel to Anfield to play their away fixture against the Reds. Liverpool have lost just one of their past 49 home league games against West Ham, drawing 12 of them. Their last home loss to the Hammers came in 2015 and the Reds have also enjoyed an unbeaten run of 28 top-flight home matches.
