Match Preview

Rock bottom West Bromwich Albion welcome Champions League semi finalists Liverpool to the Hawthorns with four gameweeks to go in the Premier League (PL). The ‘Baggies’ shock win away at Manchester United in the last round have given them a paper-thin sliver of hope of avoiding relegation.
Wrong medicine. In November, West Brom looked to experienced manager Alan Pardew to lift them out of the relegation battle. Some four months later, Pardew left his post after leading the team to just one win in 18 league games, winning a meagre eight points of 54 possible!
Liverpool, on their hand, have been helped by a faltering Chelsea in recent weeks, and a spot in the important ‘Top 4’ looks all but secure with four games to go. Coach Jurgen Klopp has already flexed his ‘rotation-muscles’ vigorously lately, and we can expect more of the same here.
‘The Anfield boys’ have kept up their form regardless, winning three of the last four matches. In fact, they’ve only lost one of their ten latest, scoring 24 goals while only conceding six.
Curiously, one of the few highlights in this West Brom season was their 3-2 win at Anfield in the FA Cup. Can they get another over on Klopp’s boys?
Players to watch: Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah has not slowed down, and has scored 30 goals and nine assists in 32 PL games.
Jay Rodriguez has been a light in the darkness for West Brom lately, and has scored three goals in his last four matches.
Stat attack: Not counting class-of-their-own Manchester City, Liverpool have by some margin been the most scoring PL team this season (78 goals in 34 matches, 2.3 on average).
Despite one draw and five defeats, West Brom have found the net in six straight home games.
In terms of the H2H at the Hawthorns, four of the last five PL games have ended under 2.5 goals. However, 68% of Liverpool games this season have ended over 2.5 – 76% in their away games.
