Two 1-0 wins on the bounce, Liverpool will be more than happy to make it a hat-trick of similar victories when they travel to London to face West Ham United in the English Premier League on Saturday.

Christian Benteke earned Liverpool six points in the last two games, scoring the only goals in both matches against Leicester City and Sunderland. Those two wins also brought Liverpool right back into top-four contention, but if they are to threaten the team above them for a place in the Champions League next season, another win against West Ham is vital.

"We cannot say now that [if we win], then it is like this," Jurgen Klopp said when asked how far his Liverpool team can go. "If you take the second step before you make the first then you will, for sure, struggle. That's what we shouldn't do.

"Now it's West Ham, then we can think about Stoke, then we can think about Exeter, then we can think about Arsenal, then we can think about Manchester United and then I don't know. We have to see, it's intensive but it's playing football and we love this. It's a brilliant game and that's what we can't forget."

Liverpool currently have 30 points from 19 matches, and are nine points off the league leaders Arsenal and Leicester City. West Ham are only a place and point below the Reds at the moment, making this EPL match all the more important.

Slaven Bilic's men have struggled for goals of late, owing to injuries to some of their main men, but the Croatian manager will be delighted to welcome Dimitri Payet, the player of the season for the first couple of months, back from injury. West Ham have missed the creative talents of Payet, and Bilic will look to the Frenchman to reignite West Ham's campaign in the Premier League again.

"I rate him on the same level as Mesut Ozil," Bilic said of Payet. "He makes other players better. He creates space for others, he creates chances, he can take three or four players out of the game.

"He adapted immediately to the club and the players recognised his ability straight away."

While Payet is expected to feature, this game might come too soon for Winston Reid and Victor Moses, but Nikica Jelavic could make the bench. Liverpool will be without James Milner and Divock Origi for the trip to West Ham, but Klopp said Daniel Sturridge could be available.

Sturridge has endured another injury-hit campaign, but in his fleeting appearances he has shown his quality. Jordan Henderson, the club captain, could miss out after being forced off on the hour in the 1-0 win over Sunderland with that heel problem he has been struggling with.
