West Brom v Liverpool Betting: Back there to be goals when the Reds visit

Our tipster is expecting the goals to flow when Jurgen Klopp's side travel to take on Tony Pulis' Baggies at the Hawthorns on Sunday afternoon

Liverpool showed they have the stomach for a fight as they battled back from a goal down to claim a vital victory against Stoke City last weekend.

Jurgen Klopp's charges needed a positive outcome from their meeting with the Potters, for the Reds are embroiled in a battle to secure a top four finish in the Premier League - and Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino grabbed the goals to ensure that the men from Merseyside picked up all three points.

Liverpool will be hoping for a similar outcome this weekend when they travel to take on Tony Pulis' West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns; the Reds are Betfair Sportsbook's 10/11 (1.91) favourites to take maximum points from this match, while the same firm go 5/2 (3.50) that the game ends level.

Additionally, new Betfair customers will see odds on Klopp's men to seal the win upped to a huge 8/1 (9.0).

West Brom are on course to finish in the top half of the table this term, but the Baggies have endured a barren spell in recent weeks; indeed, Pulis' side have won just one of their last six matches - a thrilling 3-1 win against Arsenal last month - while West Brom have failed to find the net in five of their last six outings; Betfair Sportsbook offer 7/2 (4.50) that the Baggies get back to winning ways this weekend.

Liverpool are the top scoring team in the Premier League this season and Klopp's charges must shrug off the absence of the influential Sadio Mane, who is set to miss the remainder of the campaign after suffering an injury in Liverpool's Merseyside derby victory over Everton at the beginning of this month.

The Reds certainly have the tools to cope without the Senegalese striker and Betfair Sportsbook go 10/11 (1.91) that the men from Merseyside score at least two goals in this game, while the same firm offer 11/5 (3.20) that Klopp's charges win without conceding to the misfiring hosts.

There is, however, plenty of potential for goals at both ends of the pitch, despite the home side's desperate run of poor form in the final third of the pitch. Indeed, there have been goals scored at both ends in each of Liverpool's last seven matches in all competitions, while the Reds have managed just two clean sheets in one of their last 16 outings.

Betfair Sportsbook's 3/4 (1.75) quote for these two teams to find the target, though, is skinny and better value may lie in backing Sunday's showdown to produce at least three goals; the selection would have landed in six of Liverpool's last seven games and, at 10/11 (1.91), the price may offer value for punters again ahead of the match.
