Liverpool didn’t get the result they wanted last weekend but it’s a complement to the progress of the club under Brendan Rodgers that an away draw at Newcastle was greeted with disappointment. They should have beaten The Toon’s ten men because now you expect Liverpool to win every week.
Daniel Sturridge keeps improving before your very eyes while Luis Suarez is coming back the boil after his staggered start to the season. Liverpool have such strength in those two that, even when the play badly, Liverpool will often outscore the opposition this season. They are comfortably the best double act in The Premier League on current form.
In this fettle you would expect them to win this encounter too. But West Brom don’t muck abart. An impressive win at Manchester United a fortnight ago was just one of a number recent scalps of the big boys. West Brom are physical but also technical adroit. Liverpool will know that they have been in a game after this one.
Jose Enrique is a doubt for Liverpool, but the team otherwise looks pretty settled. Here’s our predicted line up. Let us have your thoughts.
Liverpool: Mignolet, Johnson, Toure, Skrtel, Sakho, Cissokho, Gerrard, Lucas, Moses, Sturridge, Suarez
