Though they might have taken their foot off the pedal as a result of the secure position in the standings, Tony Pulis' men invariably raise their game against the biggest teams in the league and can be expected to do the same for the visit of the Reds.

SQUADS & TEAM NEWS


Position West Brom players
Goalkeepers Foster, Myhill
Defenders Evans, McAuley, Dawson, Galloway, Nyom, Wilson
Midfielders Yacob, Morrison, Brunt, McClean, Fletcher, Leko, Phillips, Field, Chadli, Livermore
Forwards Rondon, Robson-Kanu

Tony Pulis has revealed he has a couple of unnamed players dealing with bruises but otherwise has a full complement to choose from.

James McClean and Chris Brunt, on the left wing and in central midfield respectively, are the most likely players to come into the side that lost 1-0 to Southampton.

Potential starting XI: Foster; Dawson, McAuley, Evans, Nyom; Fletcher, Livermore, Morrison; Chadli, Rondon, Phillips.

Position Liverpool players
Goalkeepers Mignolet, Karius, Manninger
Defenders Clyne, Lovren, Gomez, Moreno, Matip, Klavan, Randall, Alexander-Arnold, Williams
Midfielders Milner, Coutinho, Lucas, Can, Wijnaldum, Stewart, Grujic, Ojo, Woodburn, Wilson
Forwards Firmino, Sturridge, Origi

Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino are expected to return to the starting lineup having come on as substitutes against Stoke, but Jordan Henderson and Adam Lallana remain sidelined.

Those two should return by the end of the month but it is feared Sadio Mane will miss the rest of the season, and Danny Ings will not play again this term.

Potential starting XI: Mignolet; Lovren, Matip, Klavan; Clyne, Can, Wijnaldum, Milner; Firmino, Sturridge, Coutinho.

GAME PREVIEW


Roberto Firmino Liverpool Premier League

Liverpool's victory over Stoke City was a huge result not only in the context of the league table, but also the Reds' psyche.

It leaves Jurgen Klopp's men in a positive frame of mind going into another away test at West Brom and also means, with another three more points in the bank, that a draw at the Hawthorns would not be a disaster if they can beat Crystal Palace at home to end the month.

Liverpool have won four and drawn two of their past six games despite battling with various injuries to key players and have a six-point advantage over Manchester United, who have played two games fewer.

They are now firm favourites with most bookmakers to get over the line and qualify for the Champions League, with 1/4 odds the best currently available to back them to finish in the top four.

The Baggies' small squad is feeling the effects of a long season and they are unlikely to rise or fall out of eighth or ninth, but the visit of one of the Premier League's big guns will inevitably boost motivation levels.

Klopp switched to a 3-5-2 formation to prepare for a battle at Stoke and may stick with that system here for what should be a similarly difficult match.
