Meanwhile, Adam Lallana and Daniel Sturridge have returned to full-training and are available to start against the Hammers.

Meanwhile, Liverpool have lost just one of their last 10 Premier League games, but a goalless draw with Southampton last weekend dented their European hopes.

Time will tell if Klopp and his players can deliver two big performances to end the season, but it's always good to see him in a jovial mood for the brilliant one-liners he comes out with...

"All the teams have to play tough games and no one wins all of them".

"That is the situation so let's feel the opportunity together". "It's nothing major, but it's very frustrating not to have Andy in these couple of games or before, because we know what he means to us".

"This has nothing to do with lifestyle or not being committed enough", Bilic said.

And while negotiations for new signings are now underway, Klopp is aware that they face stern competition from several other clubs - many of whom may already be in the Champions League.

"Should I go to the players in dressing and say "boys, the better you play, the better the players who take your place next year"?"

Fifth-placed Arsenal are also challenging for a top-four finish and lie four points behind Liverpool, also with a game in hand. "I don't think they will get three points against West Ham for starters".

Kouyate, an indomitable presence in the West Ham midfield in recent weeks, will be sidelined due to a recurring wrist problem.

He's featured 20 times for the Reds since joining the club, mainly in cup matches, but has made a few cameo appearances as a substitute in the Premier League.

The Hammers are on a decent run of form and beat Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 at home in their last outing.

Jurgen Klopp has noted in previous press conferences that Firmino has been feeling worn out at the end of the season, which could be an explanation for the muscle injury. Well they have a good tactical manager, and are now 10th in the Premier League.
