Liverpool travel to Hawthorns to face relegated West Brom, hoping to boost their hopes of Champions League qualification.
Liverpool have had an inconsistent season overall, battling for a place in the top four of the Premier League, with their Champions League qualification hopes fading away as the Premier League season of 2020/21 comes to an end soon.
Jurgen Klopp and his team need to win all their remaining fixtures to remain in the race for a Champions League spot and have a perfect opportunity to gain all three points against an already relegated West Brom team.
There are few changes from Thursday in respect of team news, with Ozan Kabak, James Milner and Naby Keita all remaining unavailable for the fixture. It leaves few options to make a handful of changes, but Curtis Jones will be putting his hand up for selection after appearances off the bench in the last three.
Sadio Mane will similarly be hoping to force Klopp’s hand despite giving the manager a cold shoulder after being benched at Old Trafford, which has since repeatedly been played down. Regarding options off the bench, the likes of Xherdan Shaqiri and Divock Origi are to be available once more while Ben Woodburn could be named in the matchday squad for the third game in succession.
Alisson Becker will function in between the sticks for the Merseyside outfit after shipping in two goals against the Red Devils in his last outing. Rhys Williams will resume his defensive partnership with Nathaniel Phillips at the heart of Klopp’s defence as they look to keep the Baggies at bay this weekend.
Trent Alexander-Arnold will be a nailed-on starter at right-back while Andrew Robertson looks to catch the eye on the other side as the left-back. Both of them will get the license to get forward and create some decent chances from the wide areas
.Georginio Wijnaldum, Fabinho and Thiago Alcantara will operate as the central midfielders for the Reds. Their main focus would be to press the opposition high up the field and create some clear-cut chances for their teammates up top on the counter.
Diogo Jota will get another shot to impress down the left flank while Mohamed Salah looks to produce a dazzling display from the right. Roberto Firmino scored a brace in midweek which will do his confidence in a world of good. We can expect the Brazilian striker to lead the line for the Merseysiders down the middle.
