Salah looking to beat Thierry Henry’s record.

Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah could beat Arsenal legend Thiery Henry’s Premier League record of scoring in six consecutive away matches.

The Egyptian has been on target for Liverpool in all their five away matches so far this season, becoming only the second player to achieve such feat behind the Frenchman during 2001/02.

West Ham vs Liverpool facts

  • Only Premier League title-holders Manchester City (80) and reigning European champions Chelsea (66) have earned more Premier League points in 2021 than West Ham United’s 62
  • This is already the most points the Hammers have won in a single calendar year in the competition
  • Liverpool have scored at least three goals in each of their last six Premier League away matches, netting 22 goals in total
  • In the entire history of the Football League, only one team has ever scored three or more times in seven consecutive away league matches, with Birmingham City doing so between November 1892 and September 1893 in the second tier
  • Michail Antonio has been directly involved in 17 goals in his last 22 Premier League matches at the London Stadium for West Ham United (11 goals, six assists)
  • He is the top scorer (19) and assister (12) at the London Stadium and is one of three current players to be outright top for both goals and assists at a Premier League ground, along with Jamie Vardy at the King Power Stadium and Raul Jimenez at Molineux

Team News

Liverpool will be without six of their first-team players at the London Stadium.

A serious hamstring injury sustained during the midweek win over Atletico Madrid means Roberto Firmino joins Curtis Jones (eye), Joe Gomez (calf), Naby Keita and James Milner (both hamstring) on the sidelines, as well as long-term absentee Harvey Elliott (ankle).

David Moyes, in his pre-match address, said the club will continue to monitor the fitness of Andriy Yarmolenko and Nikola Vlašić ahead of the match.

The pair missed the UEFA Europa League clash at Genk with minor knocks, and their availability will be decided ahead of the match.
