Liverpool have yet to concede a goal this season and have gone a total of 274 minutes since they last let a goal in. They started last season in a similar vein with three straight wins and no goals conceded and, on Monday, goalkeeper Simon Mignolet was unbeaten in the 0-0 draw at Arsenal.

However, they have scored only two goals so far, the joint fewest in the division - with seven other clubs.

Nethertheless, it is a good start for Brendan Rodgers and his men, who travel to Old Trafford to meet Manchester United in their next Barclays Premier League fixture.

Before then they face a West Han United side that has struggled after the impressive opening day win at Arsenal. Since they the Hammers have lost successive home games, against early pace-setters Leicester and newcomers AFC Bournemouth.

Indeed, the record books suggest another Liverpool victory. West Ham have never won at Anfield in 19 Premier League visits, losing 14 and drawing five.

They last won there in the league in September 1963 in the old First Division; since that rare victory, 52 years ago, West Ham have lost 31 and drawn 11.
