West Ham face a defensive injury crisis and are also without Michail Antonio for the visit of Liverpool.

Antonio, the fall guy from last weekend's 2-2 draw against fellow strugglers Crystal Palace, will not be in the squad for tomorrow evening's kick-off.

The winger, who faced criticism after his decision to cross the ball rather than keep it in the corner led to Palace's 97th-minute equaliser, has a slight hamstring injury according to boss Slaven Bilic.

The Hammers also have to face Liverpool's potent attack without a recognised right-back as Pablo Zabaleta is suspended and Sam Byram injured, while centre-halves Jose Fonte and James Collins are crocked as well.
