Jurgen Klopp reveals his special plan to prepare Liverpool to be at their best against West Ham

The inclusion of Patrice Evra at the age of 36 has raised a few eyebrows from both sets of fans as West Ham take on Liverpool at Anfield in the Premier League.

The veteran French defender has been handed his first start since signing for the club on a free transfer earlier this month and has the unenviable task of trying to mark and stop Liverpool's 30-goal superstar Mohamed Salah.

The former Manchester United full-back at 36 is joined by 34-year-old James Collins and 33-year-old Pablo Zabaleta in defence, who will be tasked with defending the fearsome Reds front three of Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino. Angelo Ogbonna and Aaron Cresswell will be there to help as well.

While you can argue the backline is experienced - and it is - it is also not the quickest and speed is something the Liverpool front three have absolutely mountains of.
