West Ham have the opportunity to derail Liverpool's spirits if they can put in a shift and show that they still have some fight left in them.
The Hammers have battled up to 11th place in the table and are for all counts most likely out of any late relegation trouble if they have a poor run of form in the next months.
Former Reds Andy Carroll and Steward Downing are likely to try and stick it to their former employer and manager as they perhaps felt they deserved more time on Merseyside to prove their worth.
Liverpool have to keep up the pace when they travel to Upton Park on Sunday afternoon. The Reds may have overtaken Chelsea in the title race, but there is still much track left to cover before they can be crowned champions for the first time in the Premier League era.
Manager Brendan Rodgers knows that the most important thing for his players is to remain focused on the task at hand of one match at a time to maintain their composure in the face of history.
The Reds are expected to name the same high profile attacking side that was seen against Tottenham as Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge continue to make history as a strike partnership.
Hammers XI: Adrian: Demel, Tomkins, Reid, McCartney; Noble, Taylor; Downing, Nolan, Diame; Carroll.
Liverpool XI: Mignolet: Johnson, Skrtel, Agger, Flanagan; Henderson, Gerrard, Coutinho; Sterling, Sturridge, Suarez.
