Liverpool take on West Ham in their fourth round FA Cup tie on Saturday at Anfield. This is the second time that the two Premier League sides face each other in a month.
The Reds met the Hammers at the Upton Park in their first Premier League clash of the calendar year 2016, and Jurgen Klopp's side suffered a shocking 2-0 defeat. Will revenge be on the minds of the Liverpool army in Saturday's game? That remains to be seen.
Liverpool are in the final of the League Cup this season after a dramatic game against Stoke in the midweek that saw Klopp's side winning the game on penalties. The confidence from the win is expected to stay with them in Saturday's game, and for reasons more than one, the Reds look favourites on-paper against West Ham.
The Reds defeated Exeter City 3-0 in the FA Cup third round, to progress further in the competition.
Klopp added ahead of the game that he would be fielding a relatively young side on 30 January and said that he is also impressed with the fighting spirit shown by the young guns in Liverpool at the moment. "It will be another young side but it depends on what you mean by young, though. It will be a different team from the last game, for sure," the German coach was quoted as saying by the Guardian.
"We have to make a few changes but only because I want to win the game. When I think of the Exeter game at Anfield it was great. The boys who come in will give everything. They will always be fighting and I love that attitude."
West Ham come into this game after getting past Championship outfit Wolverhampton with a 1-0 result in the FA Cup third round. Earning another shocking win over Liverpool in just a month may not look too easy for the Hammers, especially when the Reds are starting to make a turnaround after their narrow loss against arch-rivals Manchester United on 17 January.
"It is one of the most difficult games we could have got," West Ham coach Slaven Bilic was quoted as saying by the BBC ahead of the game. "But we are confident, we beat them twice and have the recent memory of beating them, and we know what to do in the game to have a chance of beating them again."
Dejan Lovren could make a return to the Liverpool side on Saturday, while West Ham have to worry about the absence of strikers Andy Carroll, Diafra Sakho and Manuel Lanzini.
