class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>The Reds found their groove against Crystal Palace last week and our tipster is expecting an early goal when they host the struggling Baggies
Liverpool will be looking to consolidate their position at the top of the Premier League table when they welcome West Brom to Anfield on Sunday afternoon.
A 2-1 win over Tottenham followed by the 7-0 thrashing of Crystal Palace in their two games prior to Christmas mean Jurgen Klopp’s men are in first place as they continue the defence of their title.
Liverpool vs West Brom Latest Odds
With nine wins under their belt already, bet365 make the Reds just 1/8 (1.12) to add another three points to their tally against Sam Allardyce’s 19th-placed side.
West Brom have managed just a single victory this season and are heavy 16/1 (17.0) outsiders to stun the champions and end Liverpool’s 66-game unbeaten Premier League run at Anfield.
However, the Baggies have claimed impressive draws against both Chelsea and Manchester City this season so another stalemate may attract some interest at 8/1 (9.0).
Liverpool vs West Brom Team News
Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain both returned in the victory over Crystal Palace but Liverpool still have a lengthy injury list, with Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Thiago, James Milner, Diogo Jota, Kostas Tsimikas, and Xherdan Shaqiri all out.
Jake Livermore is suspended after seeing red in West Brom’s loss to Aston Villa last time out but Matheus Pereira is available following his three-game ban. Conor Townsend is injured but Hal Robson-Kanu, Sam Field and Kyle Bartley could all return.
Liverpool vs West Brom Preview
Liverpool’s 7-0 victory at Selhurst Park was not only their joint-biggest win under Jurgen Klopp, it represented a ruthlessness in front of goal that saw them score with all but one of their eight shots on target.
It was also the eighth time this season that the opening goal in a Reds fixture came in the opening quarter of the game, with Klopp’s men netting first on five of those occasions.
They will fancy their chances of extending that tally against a West Brom side that has conceded the second-most goals in the league this season, shipping 29 so far, with four of their last five games all having seen a goal inside the first 22 minutes.
Liverpool vs West Brom Tips and Predictions
Continuing where they left off against Crystal Palace will be the aim for Liverpool against West Brom, and so backing a goal before 22:00 minutes at 5/6 (1.83) with bet365 offers good value for this Premier League clash.
