Liverpool’s electrifying Champions League run has not impacted their Premier League outcomes and the Reds are now eyeing to continue the winning streak this weekend as well against bottom-placed yet ‘bogey’ outfit West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns.
They registered a comprehensive 3-0 win against Bournemouth last week and still need to win games to ensure a place within ‘top four’. Jurgen Klopp, the Reds boss, might rest a few of his first-team regulars prior to next midweek’s Champions League semifinal first leg outing against AS Roma but is aware of the Baggies potential, particularly after an incredible weekend win over Manchester United at Old Trafford along with a scoreless draw at Anfield in the reverse fixture and a stunning win in an FA Cup tie, hence becoming the only team to beat Liverpool at Anfield this season.
West Brom vs Liverpool Injuries And Suspensions:
The Baggies are likely to be relegated anytime soon and set to miss a few a key names against Liverpool. James Morrison and Gareth Barry won’t feature again this term with their calf and knee injuries but Jonny Evans, Nacer Chadli, and Hal Robson-Kanu are close to returning to action and might be involved this weekend. The Reds loanee Daniel Sturridge, however, has regained fitness but is ineligible to feature against his parent club as per regulations.
Liverpool are set to be without Emre Can and Joel Matip for the remainder of the campaign but will receive double injury boost with the return of defensive duo Joe Gomez and Dejan Lovren. They, however, might not be involved against West Brom in order to stay fit for the Roma game. Nathaniel Clyne is uncertain once again with a knock whereas Adam Lallana is struggling to recover from a thigh strain but facing a race against time to be fit before the completion of the ongoing campaign.
West Brom vs Liverpool Probable Lineups:
Subs: Boaz Myhill, Grzegorz Krychowiak, Sam Field, Claudio Yacob, Jonny Evans, Hal Robson-Kanu, Nacer Chadli.
Subs: Simon Mignolet, Joe Gomez, Andrew Robertson, James Milner, Danny Ings, Dominic Solanke, Dejan Lovren.
West Brom vs Liverpool Last Meeting:
Their last meeting at the Hawthorns took place around a year back and Liverpool wrapped up a win via a late first-half goal of Roberto Firmino.
West Brom vs Liverpool Key Players:
Liverpool’s front trio of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane will pose threats on West Brom defence whereas Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will be running the show from the middle of the park.
West Brom’s Craig Dawson will be a threat from set-pieces but the gaffer Darren Moore will be relying on star striker Jay Rodriguez who netted the solitary goal last week at Old Trafford and also notched a brace at Anfield in the FA Cup fourth round outing which eventually knocked Liverpool out of the competition.
