Liverpool will be aiming to move one step closer to the Premier League top four when they travel to The Hawthorns to face relegated West Brom on Sunday afternoon.
The Reds recorded a remarkable 4-2 victory over rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford on Thursday night to ignite their challenge for a Champions League place.
West Brom vs Liverpool Latest Odds
Jurgen Klopp’s men still likely need to win their remaining three matches to reach the top four and are bet365’s overwhelming 2/9 (1.22) favourites to pick up three points here.
West Brom’s return to the Championship was officially confirmed after a 3-1 defeat at Arsenal last weekend but they can be backed at 11/1 (12.0) to record a famous victory in their penultimate home game of the season.
The last three Premier League meetings between these sides have all ended level and another draw is available at 11/2 (6.50).
West Brom vs Liverpool Team News
Ainsley Maitland-Niles should return to the Baggies’ starting line-up after being ineligible to face parent club Arsenal last week, leaving only Branislav Ivanovic and Robert Snodgrass on the injury list.
James Milner, Naby Keita, Ben Davies and Ozan Kabak all face late fitness tests but Jordan Henderson, Joel Matip, Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk are out until next season.
West Brom vs Liverpool Preview
Liverpool look to have regained consistency after a well-documented down period, with their last seven Premier League games producing five wins and two draws, including that impressive result on Thursday.
Those fixtures have also seen the Reds net 14 times – more than they managed across their previous 14 top-flight games – although they have conceded in four of the most recent five and will face a tough challenge to keep West Brom out.
Indeed, the Baggies have actually proven themselves to be regular scorers with 12 in their last six and, with nothing to play for here, could continue to play in an open style.
West Brom vs Liverpool Tips and Predictions
It should be an entertaining affair at the Hawthorns and bet365’s price of 10/11 (1.91) on both teams finding the net looks far too good to pass up, having landed in four of Liverpool’s last five.
