Sadio Mane returns from a month out with a hamstring injury to start against West Ham this evening.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp had hinted Mane might be involved, but he was not expect to be in the starting XI.
There are three changes to the side that beat Maribor in midweek.
Goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, right-back Joe Gomez and Mane come into the team.
They replace Loris Karius, Trent Alexander-Arnold and James Milner.
Captain Jordan Henderson is out with a thigh injury, so Mignolet is the skipper.
Starting XI: Mignolet, Gomez, Matip, Klavan, Moreno, Can, Wijnaldum, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Salah, Mane, Firmino
