Confirmed Teams: Liverpool suffer late injury blow; €28m star returns; Klopp snubs 'wonderful' midfielder

Liverpool have picked up yet another injury ahead of today's Premier League clash with West Ham.

- FULL TEAM: Karius, Clyne, Lovren, Matip, Milner, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Lallana, Mane, Origi, Firmino

- SUBS: Mignolet, Moreno, Klavan, Lucas, Alexander-Arnold, Ejaria, Woodburn

- WEST HAM: Randolph, Nordtveit, Reid, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Noble, Obiang, Antonio, Lanzini, Payet, Ayew

- SUBS: Carroll, Adrián, Fletcher, Fernandes, Quina, Browne, SUBS: Pike

* According to the official LFC website: "Emre Can is absent from today's squad due to a knee injury, which is not considered to be serious".

* As expected, Klopp favourite Adam Lallana returns to the starting line-up.

* Once again, Alexander-Arnold, Woodburn, and Ejaria are deemed to be more worthy of a place on the bench than significantly more experienced summer signing Marko Grujic.

* What is going on with Grujic? Why is he not being selected for bench duty, and why are teenagers with no experience getting into the match day squad ahead of him?

* Grujic: Hailed by Jurgen Klopp as a 'wonderful player'.

Probable formation:

-------------- Karius
Clyne --- Matip -- Lovren --- Milner
----- Lallana - Hendo - Wijnaldum
------- Mane - Firmino - Origi
