Brendan Rodgers has made just one change to his Liverpool line-up for the Reds' Barclays Premier League fixture against West Ham United at Upton Park this afternoon.

The manager has selected a near identical side to the one which thrashed Tottenham Hotspur 4-0 at Anfield last Sunday, bringing Mamadou Sakho in for Daniel Agger.

For Sakho, the game brings a first start since the powerful Frenchman lined up against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on December 29.

Elsewhere, Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge are up top for the Reds with Raheem Sterling and Philippe Coutinho supplementing the visitors' attacking threat.

The Liverpool XI: Mignolet, Johnson, Flanagan, Sakho, Skrtel, Gerrard, Henderson, Coutinho, Sterling, Suarez, Sturridge.

Substitutes: Jones, Toure, Cissokho, Lucas, Moses, Allen, Aspas.
