West Bromwich Albion vs Liverpool
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 21 April 2018
Kick-Off at 12:30 UK
Venue: The Hawthorns (West Bromwich).
West Bromwich Albion shocked the second-placed Manchester United 0-1 last Sunday at Old Trafford. The win literally come out of nowhere for the Baggies who started to prepare the terrain for the Championship football next term.
Sadly for their fans, such a huge win will count for little given the safe zone is still nine points away and there are only four games left to play until the end of the season.
West Brom’s board of management must regret for not hiring Darren Moore instead of Alan Pardew earlier this season. The team looks much better under the fan favourite’s guidance. Moore took four points out of the possible six points since taking over the reins from Pardew.
Can he take advantage of the momentum and clinch another massive result on Saturday when the likes of Liverpool come to visit The Hawthorns?
The Reds will have their Champions League tie with Roma on the mind for sure, but a win here could get them closer to Manchester United in the battle for the second place in the Premier League.
Klopp’s men will generally come into this in high spirits, of the back of five wins and a draw in last six games in all competitions.
West Brom vs Liverpool: Head-to-head
Liverpool will be looking to get the revenge for the shocking FA Cup loss to WBA earlier this year.
The Baggies stunned the Reds beating them 2-3 at Anfield. The league clash also saw WBSA snatch a point from Anfield, holding Liv’pol to a goalless draw in December last year.
Overall, Liverpool only lead the head to head tie by four wins if we look at matches played at The Hawthorns ahead of their 60th clash with WBA there.
West Brom vs Liverpool: Prediction
Mane, Salah and Firmino were all on target in Liverpool’s drubbing of AFC Bournemouth last weekend. Some of them could easily be rested here which is why we won’t take any goalscorer predictions.
Without the Champions league semifinal upcoming, we would regularly go with Salah to score given that the Egyptian has been just phenomenal so far in the season, bagging as many as 30 goals so far in the Premier League.
Nonetheless, this Champions League game with Roma, combined with WBA’s rise in form under the new head coach Darren Moore make us think of backing the hosts not to lose at 2.60 here. You can also try with the Under 2.5 goals FT at 2.15.
