Liverpool can make to the top of the Premier League table on Saturday for the first time this season.
Jurgen Klopp's side only need a point to climb above local rivals Everton and claim top spot going into Sunday.
However, they'll be up against a West Ham side that gave a good account of themselves against Manchester City last weekend.
Liverpool's defensive worried intensified on Tuesday night when stand-in central defender Fabinho limped off.
Despite scans showing the injury isn't as bad as first feared, he's still set to miss Saturday's match, and may not appear again until after November's international break.
Klopp may have to field an inexperienced defender for the visit of West Ham, or move another of his midfielders back to fill the void.
