Liverpool entertain West Ham at Anfield tonight as the two teams battle for a place in the Carabao Cup semi-finals.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are favourites to lift the trophy at Wembley in February, as they did in 2022, and with the likes of Manchester City and Arsenal already out of the competition, and next biggest threat Newcastle joining them on Tuesday, the Reds look well-placed to pick up the first major piece of silverware of the season.
West Ham have made a habit of producing their best in cup competitions though, whether that be in Europe or when knocking Arsenal out with a superb performance last month.
The Hammers go into this match on a high too, having cruised past Wolves to move up to eighth in the table, while Liverpool must improve significantly from the display they produced in a low-quality goalless draw with Manchester United.
Date, kick-off time and venue
Liverpool vs West Ham is scheduled for an 8pm GMT kick-off time tonight, Wednesday December 20, 2023. Anfield will host.
Where to watch Liverpool vs West Ham

Liverpool vs West Ham team news
Ryan Gravenberch is likely to miss out for Liverpool, although the Dutchman is suffering from fatigue more than injury. Harvey Elliott could come into the side after a string of impressive performances off the bench.
Klopp may opt to rotate his side, with a huge Premier League clash against Arsenal to come this weekend. Caoimhin Kelleher is set to start in goal, while Jarell Quansah and Cody Gakpo will hope to get chances to impress.
