Robbie Fowler has warned Liverpool’s defence about the threat West Ham striker Andy Carroll will pose at the London Stadium on Saturday evening.

The Reds will be hoping to record their third successive win in the English capital after a rare positive week for Jurgen Klopp and his players.

Liverpool were 3-0 winners against promoted side Huddersfield Town at Anfield last weekend thanks to goals from Daniel Sturridge, Roberto Firmino and Georginio Wijnaldum.

The Merseyside outfit followed up that result with a 3-0 victory over Maribor at Anfield in the Champions League having won 7-0 in Slovenia in Group E last month.

Liverpool will head back on the road this weekend having lost 4-1 to Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley as Dejan Lovren was substituted in the 32nd minute.

The Reds have conceded 15 times in their last five games on the road to raise serious questions about Klopp’s defence.

Carroll moved to West Ham from Liverpool in a £15m deal in 2014 after he scored 11 times in 58 games.

Former Liverpool striker Fowler has warned Klopp’s back four about coming up against Carroll.

“Andy Carroll will want to do well as an ex Liverpool player,” Fowler told Tag Heuer.

“He wasn’t great at Liverpool or as good as what he would have liked to have been but on his day he is a very good player.

“He’s struggled with injuries but a fit and fine Andy Carroll is a handful for any defence.”

Liverpool were 4-0 winners against West Ham in their penultimate game in the 2016-17 season to help secure a fourth-place finish.

Robbie Fowler was speaking on behalf of TAG Heuer to promote the TAG Heuer Premier League Pressure Test. TAG Heuer is the Official Timekeeping Partner of the Premier League.
