West Brom will look to the home faithful in order to support them in their quest for pushing up the table and sticking it to Liverpool as Tony Pulis’ side will aim for another victory at home this season. West Brom have made the Hawthorns stadium having the 7th best record in the league, while scoring 27 and conceding 19. Teams have come to try and dislodge them including Arsenal, Tottenham, West Ham among the better teams and all found themselves failing to take 3 points back. West Brom will rely a lot on their counter attacking wingers in Brunt and Phillips to put balls into the box to give Rondon and Chadli as the furthest forward players to have a chance. West Brom are the most lethal team int he Premier League in scoring from set pieces with 18 out of their 39 goals coming from free-kicks and corners; which could trouble Liverpool today.
Liverpool have been playing some tight encounters in recent weeks against some of the top teams and have found themselves wanting especially away from home with just 1 victory in the Premier League in 2017 in 6 games. Liverpool’s biggest issue has been their defensive efforts as they have now conceded goals in 12 out of their last 13 games in all competitions in 2017 and in 13 out of 16 on the road in the Premier League. The added problem for Liverpool is that the defensive midfielder and captain Henderson is missing with injury to add more calm to the situation for Liverpool.
