West Bromwich Albion v Liverpool Match Preview & Trends

Klopp to go full-strength in the push for top-4

After their resounding win at Old Trafford on Thursday night, Liverpool will want to build on the momentum created from smashing their old rivals Manchester United in their own backyard. Jurgen Klopp will not want any complacency from his side now that Champions League Qualification is within their grasp having clawed their way back up the league table in recent weeks with an impressive run of results since their two-legged defeat at the hands of Real Madrid in the European Semi-Finals.

Sam Allardyce continues to brush off questions about his future following The Baggies’ latest relegation to the Championship. The experienced ex-England manager will no doubt be hurting following the failure to avoid the drop and will want his side to play with passion and show some character at the very least when they host the dethroned champions at The Hawthorns this weekend.

West Brom have failed to score in 53% of their home matches and there has been a first-half goal scored in each of their last 7 games in a row.
