Liverpool vs West Bromwich Albion: Match Preview and Predictions

Liverpool’s splendid run of form came to an end at the weekend when they failed to beat arch-rivals Everton in the Merseyside Derby.

Jurgen Klopp’s side will have a nice chance to bounce back only three days later when they are to meet the relegation-threatened and out-of-form West Bromwich Albion at Anfield.


Mohamed Salah continued his brilliant season when he broke the deadlock with a beautiful goal past the Toffees.

Sadly for Klopp, the heavily-criticized center-back Dejan Lovren made a mistake which allowed Wayne Rooney to score an equalizer from the penalty spot in the second half.

Prior to the draw in the Merseyside Derby, the Reds notched an impressive tally of 15 goals in three straight wins in all competitions.

They sit fourth in the Premier League standings at the moment and a win here is a must if they want to avoid dropping out of top four given Arsenal and Tottenham are just behind in fifth and sixth.

The Baggies made a promising start to the campaign, but they’ll head into this winless in last 15 matches in all competitions.

Such poor run dropped them down in the brink of the danger area and it’s really hard to expect them bounce back in mid-week against such a string opposition.

The newly-appointed manager Alan Pardew is yet to shift the team’s fortunes around. The Baggies were entirely harmless in the final third at the weekend when they fell to fellow strugglers Swansea City 1-0 at Liberty Stadium.
