West Bromwich Albion vs Liverpool Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

West Brom continued their renaissance under manager Darren Moore after picking up a 1-0 win over Manchester United at Old Trafford. Jay Rodriguez took advantage of acres of space to score the only goal of the game in the 73rd minute. Liverpool strengthened their bid for the second spot in the Premier League by grabbing a 3-0 win over Bournemouth in the recent league match. The visitors were never really in the match and their plan was thrown away by Sadio Mane’s seventh-minute goal. Second-half goals from Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino made it a comprehensive win for West Brom.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Liverpool have had a poor record over West Brom after only managing two wins in the last six. In fact, West Brom were able to knock Liverpool out of the FA Cup earlier in the campaign after a 3-2 win at Anfield. The baggies will be pumped up for this encounter after the win over United, while there is a strong chance of Liverpool resting most of the starting line-up. The Reds are up against Roma in the first leg of the Champions League semi-finals on Tuesday night. I would back a draw.

West Brom are unlikely to shy away from being quite defensive in the game, as Darren Moore will be aware about the attacking threat from Liverpool – even if the likes of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane are not in the starting line-up. None of the last four meetings between the two clubs at the Hawthorns has produced more than 2.5 goals. I would back a low scoring game in this fixture.

West Bromwich Albion Preview

The return of four points in the last two league matches will be enough to stir even the pessimistic West Brom fan, but it is highly unlikely that the baggies will be able to avoid the drop. West Brom need nine points in order to avoid the drop and this gap could get bigger if Swansea City win their match in hand. Since there are only four matches left in the campaign for West Brom, it is highly unlikely that the team will be able to stay in the division. Yet, it is about playing for pride in these remaining few games.

West Bromwich Albion Team News

Hal Robson-Kanu (concussion), James Morrison (Achilles tendon), Gareth Barry (knee), and Jonny Evans (knee) are unavailable for West Brom manager Moore.

Liverpool Preview

The sensational form of Liverpool continues to grow to greater heights and the team are now just four points behind Manchester United going into the last couple of Premier League games for this campaign. Crucially, Liverpool are likely to place their entire focus upon the Champions League semi-final with Roma. After managing to reach the last four of the competition for the first time in a decade, Liverpool will be quite pumped up by the prospect of reaching the finals. Despite the second spot in the Premier League being up for grabs, it would not be surprising to see Jurgen Klopp rest his top stars in the domestic games.

Liverpool Team News

Emre Can (back), Joel Matip (thigh), and Adam Lallana (hamstring) are missing from action for Liverpool, while Nathaniel Clyne is a doubt with a muscle injury.
