West Brom vs. Liverpool: Premier League – Match Preview

Liverpool can take a giant step towards a Champions League spot when they travel to face West Brom on Sunday.

The Baggies have struggled in recent weeks and were beaten at home by Southampton last time out.

Jordy Clasie’s first Premier League goal was the difference as West Brom suffered a second consecutive defeat.

Liverpool produced a brilliant recovery to beat Stoke, despite starting with a very unfamiliar XI.

The introduction of Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino turned the game around and both scored for the Reds.
