Liverpool VS West Bromwich Albion
Wednesday (13/12/2017)
21:00 (WAT)
LIVERPOOL will look to bounce back from derby disappointment as West Brom visit Anfield on Wednesday night.

Jurgen Klopp’s side dominated proceedings but were pegged back by a Wayne Rooney penalty – although the Reds are still unbeaten in ten games.

West Brom haven’t won in the league since a 1-0 win over Burnley on August 19 – and are only out of the relegation places on goal difference.

Alan Pardew faces a huge task here, at a ground where Albion haven’t won since a 2-0 triumph in 2013.

What is the team news?
AFTER starting the Everton game on the bench, Firmino and Philippe Coutinho are expected to return to the starting lineup.

Alberto Moreno is out until the New Year, whilst Adam Lallana is back in training following a lengthy absence.

West Brom will be without injured trio James Morrison, Craig Dawson and Nacer Chadli.

  • West Bromwich Albion have scored at least once in their last six league visits to Anfield (W2 D1 L3), netting eight goals in total. Their previous eight goals at Liverpool came over a period of 22 games, in which they failed to score 14 times.

  • Mohamed Salah has been directly involved in 23 goals for Liverpool in all competitions this season (in 24 games), two more than any other player in the Premier League.
  • Salah has scored 19 goals in 24 appearances for Liverpool this season (all competitions), as many as he netted for Roma last term in 41 games
  • Mohamed Salah could become the first Liverpool player to score 20+ goals in a season (all comps) since Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge both did so in 2013-14.
