Liverpool vs West Ham live stream: How to watch Carabao Cup quarter-final online. The Liverpool vs West Ham live stream sees the home side look to respond after a disappointing performance at the weekend and secure a place in the Carabao Cup semi-finals when they welcome the Hammers to Anfield on Wednesday.
Liverpool entertain West Ham at Anfield tonight as the two teams battle for a place in the Carabao Cup semi-finals.
There was a sense of disappointment at Anfield on Sunday as Liverpool were held to a 0-0 draw by Manchester United and slipped to second in the EPL table. It was the first time this season that the Reds had failed to win at home.
Jurgen Klopp will be looking for a response and may choose to freshen his line-up with the busy Christmas period ahead. West Ham, on the other hand, will likely field a strong side as they attempt to reach the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup for the first time since 2014 when they lost to eventual winners Manchester City.
The Hammers impressed in the last round when they knocked out high-flying Arsenal and were excellent at the weekend as they beat Wolves 3-0. Summer signing Mohammed Kudus has been in superb form of late and will likely provide a serious goal threat, as will Jarrod Bowen who has 10 goals already this campaign.

Jurgen Klopp's side are favourites to lift the trophy at Wembley in February, as they did in 2022, and with the likes of Manchester City and Arsenal already out of the competition, and next biggest threat Newcastle joining them on Tuesday, the Reds look well-placed to pick up the first major piece of silverware of the season.
West Ham have made a habit of producing their best in cup competitions though, whether that be in Europe or when knocking Arsenal out with a superb performance last month.
The Hammers go into this match on a high too, having cruised past Wolves to move up to eighth in the table, while Liverpool must improve significantly from the display they produced in a low-quality goalless draw with Manchester United.
Ryan Gravenberch is likely to miss out for Liverpool, although the Dutchman is suffering from fatigue more than injury. Harvey Elliott could come into the side after a string of impressive performances off the bench.
Klopp may opt to rotate his side, with a huge Premier League clash against Arsenal to come this weekend. Caoimhin Kelleher is set to start in goal, while Jarell Quansah and Cody Gakpo will hope to get chances to impress.
West Ham can be expected to name a strong side, with David Moyes fully aware that a victory here would leave the club as one of the big favourites to win the competition. Jarrod Bowen, Lucas Paqueta and Mohammed Kudus all shone against Wolves and it would be a surprise if that was not the front three at Anfield.
Konstantinos Mavropanos could come into the side at the back, while Alphonse Areola faces a battle to win back his place in goal from Lukasz Fabianski.
Real Madrid are the only team to have beaten Liverpool at Anfield so far in 2023, while the draw with Man United on Sunday ended the 11-match winning run Jurgen Klopp's side had put together on home soil this season.
West Ham will believe they can cause Liverpool real problems on the break and they will likely get space to exploit at times, but the Reds will be desperate to return to winning ways and can be expected to take out some of the frustration from the weekend on the Hammers.
Both sides are attempting
